Ep. 207 Krugman Embraces Warren, Discards Economics
Historian and podcast host Brion McClanahan joins Bob to discuss Krugman’s defense of Elizabeth Warren against the big bad plutocrats, who apparently are threatening to support Trump if she’s the Democratic nominee. Krugman dismisses the possibility that these wealthy people might oppose Warren’s wealth tax, and instead suggests that the real reason they hate Warren is that she hurt their feelings.
