Atlas Shrugged: The Mocking

Less Accurate Megan

Shorter Megan McArdle: There is nothing more irritating than trying to get information from people who don't know what they're talking about and keep giving you bad information. UPDATE: My earlier information was bad.

More Megan McArdle: Since increases in health care costs are due to inflation, we don't need to worry about rising health care expenses in the future, when inevitable economic growth means we shall all be richer than we are now.

Wrong on the reason for health care cost increases, wrong on growth, wrong on politics. If McArdle's knee is going to jerk every time Ezra Klein writes a column, she's going to be much busier than she likes.

Standing athwart history yelling stop sounds powerful, but in reality the only constant in life is change. Those standing still trying to block others will simply be left behind while everyone else moves forward.

The "we're getting richer" post is one of the dumbest things I've ever seen.

It has her minions are clapping extra hard.

I don't even try to understand her economic errors anymore. I just point and mock.

Now she's linked to her latest appearance at one of those dorky Blogginheads segments by writing "Noam Scheiber and I on health care..."

For someone who cannot stop bragging about how much money was spent on her education, she doesn't even have a grasp on the fundamentals of the English language that most of us learned in the 8th grade.
