    Raise taxes, do a little tariffing and reduce the war welfare by 66%, to the same level the EU as part of GDP.

    A few measure the economy by what is good for 100% of the citizens, the controled media by what is good for the sponsors, at the expense of the 100%.

    The household debt analogy has a very rich capo…………….. with a strap to keep the kids in line.

    John Cochrane is always interesting to listen to.

    On the other hand, if there was a Economist’s version of Hollywood Squares for dysfunctional economic thought, Krugman would “center square”. And I mean that with no disrespect to the late Paul Lynde.

    I think the endless war economy is a big problem for many reasons, but it will be interesting to watch the world try to move oil around with out the US navy. Very expensive for us, but also seems very necessary at this time.

    Plundering SS and Medicare securing free trade [other] countries’ oil.

    The ‘common defense’ and wasteful foreign entanglements aside.

    Would $45/bbl pay for the US navy?

    Completely caricaturing Krugman’s views and Keynesianism, that’s “always interesting to listen to.”
