“A Stimulus You Can Believe In”

by Ted Frank on May 29, 2009

I summarize my recent testimony on the Hill in today’s American:

As I discussed in recent testimony on Capitol Hill, if one takes conservative estimates from these economic studies and adds it all up, the total cost to the economy from excessive litigation can be estimated to be between $600 billion and $900 billion a year, the vast majority of which is simply wealth destruction. That is between 4 and 6 percent of GNP, a tort tax of between $8,000 and $12,000 a year for an average family of four.

The entire hearing is on YouTube, or you can watch a highlight reel.
