economist quick quip

From the Washington Post:

Perry Day Quick, 61, a senior staff economist for the Council of Economic Advisors during the Carter and Reagan administrations, died...May 1 at his home in Washington.

Asked how he could serve such different administrations as those of Jimmy Carter and Ronald Reagan, Dr. Quick said Democrats and Republicans generally treated sound economic advice the same way: by ignoring it.
