David Broder, the longtime columnist and reporter at a formerly respectable newspaper, quite explicitly suggested that fighting a war with Iran could be an effective way to boost the economy. Ignoring the idea that anyone should undertake war as an economic policy, Broder's economics is also a visit to loon tune land.

The notion of achieving full employment by means of war is nothing new. President George H. W. Bush's administration went on a national campaign with a promise of "jobs" shortly before the "Gulf war". And it somehow worked.    

Never increase, beyond what is necessary, the number of entities required to explain anything.
