Krugman: Obama Should Just Lie to Americans to Get Another Stimulus

Labels: »

Paul Krugman, the New York Times’ liberal with no conscience, posted an opinion piece in which he offered a solution to the current economic situation: lie to Americans to get them to buy into another round of massive stimulus spending.
Suppose that Obama announces that we face a clear and present danger from Ruritania, and that to meet that threat we need immediate investment in roads and rail (to move troops, of course). The economy surges on the emergency spending — and newly employed men and women at last get to move out of their relatives’ basements. Home construction surges. Then Obama apologizes, says that his advisers have learned that there is no such country as Ruritania, and cancels the program. But we still have the new roads and rail links; plus, the surge in housing demand is now self-sustaining, and the economy remains strong.
If I were Obama I would put a muzzle on Krugman. He obviously isn't on the inside... if he were he would not be so candid. btw... Krugman... the armed forces do employ a lot of youth already. Building bridges to nowhere is not going to help. but the idea Krugman is proposing sounds like ancient Egypt where modern scholars make conjectures that the Pyramids were massive public works designed to keep a disenchanted public busy. This is LIBERAL now?
