The Presidential Candidate Who Would Destroy the Economy

Reason Magazine has put out its pre-election compilation of its writers' statements about whom they will be voting for and why. The Reason staffers are more unanimous than usual in their support for the Libertarian Party nominee, Gary Johnson. The usually reasonable Conor Friedersdorf of The Atlantic also backs Johnson.

This is unfortunate because Johnson has nutty economic policy views and would do tremendous damage to the global economy were he to somehow become president.
