Please note that w-smith HAS done as promised and provided a complete list of "scholarly texts" arguing that higher taxes help the economy. Just in case you missed it, let me give that entire list again:
I can guarantee I have missed none. If anyone is interested in a listing of scholarly economic texts of any type, I will be happy to provide one.
