Ep. 223 Krugman Unwittingly Agrees the Fed Has Driven Stock Market Since 2007
In his attempt to praise Powell and criticize Trump, Krugman admits that the “real economy” is in terrible shape, and that the stock market has done well only because of low interest rates and the Fed’s emergency actions. Krugman says this pattern holds not only for our post-covid world, but ever since the mid-2000s. He thus ironically agrees with Austrian critics who’ve warned for years that the Fed was blowing up massive asset bubbles.
