Dinsdag quote

We need now a “pro-growth” agenda. When you’re out of recession and financial crisis, further growth comes from “supply.” And there is plenty to work on there. Alas, supply requires a Marie Kondoing of our public life, not a grand new initiative. Fix all the little things, zoning, agricultural policy, tax reform, reducing disincentives of social programs, continued regulatory reform, cutting tariffs, occupational licensing, and on and on. Macroeconomists (and growth economists) should be focusing on microeconomics.
