Ep. 69 This Is Why Our Podcast Exists: Krugman Literally Says Deficits Matter Again — at the Very Moment a Republican Takes Over

11 January 2017     |     Tom Woods     |     10

Krugman actually had the nerve to write a column called “Deficits Matter Again.” We demolish this column. We prove beyond a shadow of a doubt that Krugman is simply a hypocrite, despite his protestations to the contrary. His reasons for why the deficit suddenly matters were all in effect months ago, yet back then Krugman didn’t care about the deficit at all.

We got him. And we also teach some economics.
