"Name That Stimulus Proponent"


Name That Stimulus Proponent, by Motoko Rich, Economix: The raging debate over what to do about the deficit is now getting its own lingo.

Mark Thoma, who blogs at Economist’s View, has coined the catchy term “Austerians” for those deficit hawks who are exhorting governments to reduce their debt levels.

So what about the stimulus boosters on the other side? What shall we call them?

A few suggestions:

  • Stimulants
  • Stimubuffs
  • Stimu-plussers

What would you suggest?
