A former conservative official has rallied 400 economists, including five Nobel Prize winners, to sign a statement supporting Republican presidential hopeful Mitt Romney’s economic policies.
Nobel Prize-winning economists Gary Becker, Robert Lucas, Robert Mundell, Edward Prescott and Myron Scholes are among the names listed on the website, Economists for Romney.
The site's founder, James Carter, was a deputy assistant Treasury secretary of former President George W. Bush. Economists for Romney describes itself as “an independent, voluntary association of economists” supporting the former Massachusetts governor and says it “is not an official arm of the 2012 Mitt Romney campaign.”
