The Economics of the Drilling Moratorium

by Pejman Yousefzadeh on July 22, 2010


My colleague, Ben Domenech, has already covered this issue, but I guess I can add a little something: Given that this is an election season, and that jobs, and the economy are going to be the paramount issues, someone would do well to cut an ad in which people whose livelihoods have been affected by the moratorium can face the cameras, and explain how the Obama Administration is preventing them from making a living.

It’s a good campaign issue, and it has the virtue of promoting a better public policy on the subject than what the Administration has to offer.
