    Re Krugman,
    The MMT guys seem to aruge taxes and bond yields are nothing more than managing the money supply since balance of trade issues are nothing more than digits on the Federal Reserve’s computer, but debt is a funny thing, it seems no body cares until they do and then it’s too late. Debt mattered to Greece, and while we print our own currency history has shown that currencies can depreciate. I don’t have a PHD in economics but wasn’t Keynes about deficits in bad times and surpluses in good times. G-d forbid these keynsians become chefs, they would never turn the stove off.
