Krugman rips Reagan a new one

Paul Krugman must be reading this blog. Fresh from his Nobel he decides the next worthy target is Reagan. So he assaults him in his NYT column. Money shot:


There’s plenty of blame to go around these days. But the prime villains behind the mess we’re in were Reagan and his circle of advisers — men who forgot the lessons of America’s last great financial crisis, and condemned the rest of us to repeat it.

I think I shed a tear. I love the way Krugman writes! so clear, so pedagogical. He rules. Better to attack Reagan than Obama, that's for sure.

Troll! ;-)

You should read some of Krugman's books... he's been attacking Reagan and the supply-siders for the last 20 years. This is nothing new.

Of course, Krugman leaves out the 20 years following Reagan, but who cares as long as it falls in-line with his liberal agenda?

Hummmm, interesting, especially as Krugman was an economic advisor to Reagan.
