Second Best Second Stimulus

Robert Waldmann

It sure looks like the US economy would benefit from a second stimulus. However, it also looks clear that congress will not pass an optimal second stimulus. Getting my thoughts on economics and politics from a philosophy major, I note that Matthew Yglesias notes that it would be very hard for congress to say no to a tax cut only second stimulus.

So would a tax cut only second stimulus be better or worse than no second stimulus ?
