by Anthony Wile, The Daily Bell:
Paul Krugman recently published a column called “The Unbearable Lightness of Being Right.” In it, he once again explains failures of so-called “austerity” and defends his own perspective, which is thoroughly Keynesian.
Now, within the context of free-market economics, we’ve long been anti-austerity but not for the reasons that Krugman advances. Krugman believes that austerity is wrong because governments ought to print lots of money from nothing. This is basically a Keynesian point of view and it is one he advances relentlessly.
