Rick Perry Offers a Lesson in Economics

Speaking at a coal-fired power plant in Maidsville, W.Va., on Thursday, Energy Secretary Rick Perry made a strange argument about supply and demand, seeming to confuse the relationship between two of the essential forces in the economy.

“Here's a little economics lesson: supply and demand,” Perry said, according to Taylor Kuykendall of Standard & Poor's. “You put the supply out there, and demand will follow.”

The party of supply-side economics now offers a new supply/demand relationship.

Stanleys ran on kerosene, Rockefeller's affordable substitute for whale derived lamp oil.
Managing a Stanley steamer was quite different from a gasoline internal combustion car.

Didn't Perry want to get rid of the Department of Education?
