This didn’t make it into the book, but one of my favorite remedies for voter irrationality has long been to simply clone John Stossel. His column today just reinforces my support for the clone-Stossel solution:

More practically, [Caplan] thinks that “Everyone who knows some economics” should grab every opportunity to teach it. That’s what I try to do with my “20/20” segments, television specials and the Stossel in the Classroom program, which brings economic ideas to high-school and college classrooms.

I wonder if Stossel realizes that when I was writing this section, I had him in mind?
