    I saw the best minds of my generation destroyed by
    madness, starving hysterical naked,
    dragging themselves through the negro streets at
    dawn looking for an angry fix

    Paul Krugman’s solution to the unemployment problem: “hire a lot of people to fill potholes.” You effing idiot, Krudman. Rogoff tries desperately to be the voice of reason, but to no avail. With dogmatic numbnuts like the K-man considered worthy of Nobel awards, it is any wonder that we find ourselves in this mess?

    BUILD OUT NATURAL GAS INFRASTRUCTURE! Now that is a fiscal policy initiative that makes sense, and provides both long term and short term benefits.

    ‘Paul Krugman’s solution to the unemployment problem: “hire a lot of people…’

    The nerve of that uppity economist for actually stating that you could decrease unemployment by hiring people. Every fool knows that corporate subsidies, deregulation, and tax brakes for the rich are what really lead to full employment.

    Disclosure: Long compassion and social justice.

  5. kenny powers says:

    The point is that he wants to hire them to do relatively unproductive work instead of productive work.

    Building out the US’ natural gas infrastructure could provide you with long term energy security, lower your energy costs for individuals and firms and improve your terms of trade as a country AND provide jobs to lots people who need them. That is the point. (Btw, I don’t believe in tax cuts for the rich as a solution to your debt problem in the US, nor do I believe in corporate subsidies or the deregulation of finance. )

    LOL yuan….
    That has got to be the most losing trade I’ve seen in a long time. At some point I imagine its going to be a “value” trade but who knows when that is… Compassion and social justice have been in a bear market since the 80′s at least.
