Krugman Spells It Out In Plain EnglishPermalink +
Sun, Apr 28, 2013, 9:30 pm // John Servais
Paul Krugman has an outstanding aticle in Monday's New York Times. You can read it online here. It is short and is a masterpiece of brevity on a complicated subject.
Paul Krugman has been the clearest voice on economic policy in these years since the Bush economic crash in 2008. Five years ago we entered a deep recession and our Congress in DC has done exactly the wrong things for four years. Krugman explains it all.
He also writes a blog on the New York Times that is a must-read for this writer. He has been consistent and right for years. We should encourage our congressional representatives and senators to read him - and heed his advice. We would end this stagnating recession.
