Ep. 51 Not Voting Democrat? Then You Want to Kill Children, Says Krugman

10 September 2016     |     Tom Woods     |     3

This week, Krugman is unhappy about the adverse health effects of lead paint, which only Hillary Clinton wants to eradicate. This is typical, Krugman says: Republicans (which in his mind is synonymous with free-market people) hate science and love when poor people are unsafe and die.

    In regards to the reference to Krugman’s wife, Robin Wells, there’s rumors that she’s ghost writes much of his NY Times columns.

    Lead in homes isn’t limited to poor neighborhoods. Take Salt Lake City, for instance. The homes were built so solidly that you’ll often find homes greater than 110 years old.

    The lead risk to children, however, is lower than people think. New paint over old, keeps paint chips at bay as a worst case scenario and costs less than removal.

    Oh, yeah, I listen for the snark Mr. Murphy : )

    Love the show, and thanks for the Rothbard article (I’ve needed that for a months long conversation on the environment I’ve had with a friend).
