This should keep me laughing through the weekend:


That’s not a serious economic prediction or diagnosis, but rather a cry for help.

Krugman’s weekly column at the New York Times is called “Hotsky to Trotsky” and never fails to deliver the comedy.

    Keynes proposed that the reason people are poor is because they could not borrow enough money. Governments around the world have given themselves permission to create near-infinite amounts of (paper) money out of thin air. They have also set up monetary systems that enable debt to be turned into money. But money is not "assets", so while there can be an infinite amount of debt, there really cannot be a change in the amount of assets. Experts like Krugman have in fact confused fiat money with real things. They think that creating money creates things, which defies reality. Moreover, the act of creating near-infinite amounts of money drives interest rates nearly to zero. All of this is "unsustainable" a concept that people like Krugman scold us about because they think they hold the moral and intellectual high ground. How blind are they? Well, so blind that they think they are printing cars and jobs when they print money.

    Krugman is beyond help.

    And… AND it was O'Bummer's bestest buddy Warren Buffet that warned ( back in 2002 I believe ) there were more financial derivatives floating around in the system than The.Planet.Was.WORTH!?

    In fact by HIS own estimation, three to FOUR times? So, certainly that MUST have been discussed over one of their beer/donor summits? Or not…

    Here's a blast from the past all intrepid Housing Bubble justabloggers referred to when describing your Krugmanomics. We always admired the way the guy could manage to "stay in character", no matter the weather! Priceless stuff:

    Dodd/Frank needs to be strengthen not weakened by the greedy bankers and they're conservative lackeys.

    Wrong. How much damage do you want done to the country?

    Why do you hate it so much? With your coast guard background I wouldn't expect such anger towards the nation.

    Bankers know how to loan money more than the government. If they screw up, let them go under. Rewards, with punishment for failure is what Capitalism has to stay nimble and responsive. With Dodd Franks out of the way the nationalization of the banks will be weakened and innovation can start again.
