Grossman’s Blog Example of Fact-Based Arguing

In a piece in The New York Times blog, “The Stone,” which examines philosophical issues, the author cited the blog of Economics Professor Richard Grossman (along with Paul Krugman’s blog) as one of only a few that marshaled facts to make a valid counter- argument. The argument at hand was a refutation to a piece written by Stanford Economist John Taylor who disputed the Obama Administration’s current budget proposal, also based on Taylor’s use of facts.
