Originally published on Fri October 26, 2012 11:03 am

As you may know by now, we recently convened a panel of economists from across the political spectrum. Their job: Create a presidential platform they could all support.

We'll have more about our fake candidate on today's show. In the meantime, check the fake candidate's campaign site.
