"Win-Win," as Filtered Through Make-Work Bias
By Bryan Caplan
Another debate gem: Hillary on energy policy.
CLINTON: …But this issue of energy and global warming has the promise of creating millions of new jobs in America… So it can be a win-win, if we do it right.
It’s hard to interpret this charitably. Hillary really seems to believe that the diverting of millions of people to a new task is a free lunch. Has she never read Bastiat?
Sorry, stupid question.
