Ep. 58 Only Idiots Worry About the National Debt

29 October 2016     |     Tom Woods     |     9

Krugman can’t believe people who worry about the national debt are taken seriously. There are no serious budgetary or financing problems on the horizon, so if there’s anything to be concerned about at all, that concern is surely misplaced today. Instead, we should be worried about climate change!

Krugman has things exactly backwards, as usual.
