Ex‐​Im Shenanigans, cont’d

Kudos to Tim Carney, who has a great piece in the Washington Examiner today highlighting some of the politics and policy substance behind the fight over reauthorisation of the Ex‐​Im Bank. It’s gratifying to see a journalist take a stand against outrageous corporate welfare. If only it were more common (I’m looking at you, New York “the bank is self‐​financing” Times).

My new paper on Ex‐​Im, in which I expand on this blog post from a few weeks ago, was released yesterday. You’ll find even more evidence –as if it were needed — of why the Ex‐​Im Bank, rubber stamped through Congress by both parties on behalf of their rent‐​seeking friends for almost 80 years, has got to go.
