States shouldn't have to wait for Congress to enact pro-growth tax policy. They can do it on their own. My latest from the Goldwater Institute.

Watch me discuss behavioral economics and why government gridlock is good in this episode of Blogging Heads TV. 
On Rational Actors, Kevin and Stephen consider whether economics is a science. Stephen outlines the disagreements between behavioral economists and experimental economists.
