Ep. 62 Krugman Desperate to Oppose Trump Infrastructure Stimulus

23 November 2016     |     Tom Woods     |     4

Funny: Krugman used to be happy about any kind of fiscal stimulus. But when it’s a Republican doing it, he has to come up with a laundry list of reasons to oppose it. But his own economic theory virtually requires him to favor it, so we have a little fun with the poor guy.

    These guys are developing into a sort of Fry & Laurie…what sort, exactly, I’m not sure. But they are entertaining to people who read and think a lot.

    I think that we have to give Krugman credit for inventing the Head-Fake Link. This a strategically placed hyperlink that gives the impression that there is substantiation for a claim, when in fact there is no such thing. Krugman knows his audience and he knows that they are too lazy, and too immersed in group think and hero worship, actually to follow the links. But he fails to consider the terrier-like persistence of Bob Murphy!

    Trump is doing what Krugman suggested.
    There IS an alien invasion. What do you think “Build a Wall” was about, and the deportation?

    If the odds of another Contra Cruise are similar to the odds of an alien invasion perhaps you guys should avail yourselves of the genius of Paul Krugman and have a fake alien invasion to justify another Contra Cruise.
