Way too many assumptions in those charts.
It's a limited but interesting analysis. With TARP, the originally projected cost turned out to be much more than the actual cost, and many components of TARP made the government a profit (arguably). I'm not saying that makes the stimulus right, but these calculations are complex, and there are so many variables that even after-the-fact estimates of the cost of government programs are less than crystal clear.
What does it mean to be a "conservative" economist? It could refer to political or economic conservatism. Republicans IMO, for the most part, are not conservative economically.
Very good question. "Conservative" is analogous to the Tories -- something from pre-WW II England -- it meant something back then-- people who really did believe in the Monarchy, the Aristocracy, Noblesse Oblige, etc. It just doesn't fit very well in the post-Reagan USofA.
