Former Assistant to the President for Economic Policy
Pro to the question "Should the US Have Attacked Iraq?"
"Under every plausible scenario, the negative effect will be quite small relative to the economic benefits that would come from a successful prosecution of the war.
The key issue is oil, and a regime change in Iraq would facilitate an increase in world oil."
