Carbon Pricing: It Works, Bitches (redux)

I dragged the sign out for yesterday’s climate change rallies, and while I wasn’t parading it as prominently as in 2011, pictures of me ended up online again. I suppose I shouldn’t be surprised. Reddit, at least, has a much higher standard of economic debate than Andrew Bolt’s blog, though some of the comments could have come straight out of AB’s bilgewater:

Congratulations on grasping one of the most simplistic and basic economic concepts, first 3 weeks of undergraduate commerce degree level of knowledge right here… the smugness on that guys face is overwhelming.

Thanks for the nostalgia, internet!

In other coverage, I’m kind of okay with the verdict an “economist from a major financial institution” gave my sign:

‘A Bit Arrogant, But Totally Correct’

Potential epitaph, right there.
