  • The Cavalry Arrives

    The above is, of course, a reference to Paul Krugman’s increasingly-absurd comments on government spending. Krugman calls for a fake alien invasion here. The increasing absurdity of Krugman’s comments even prompted a Google Plus parody account to post: People on twitter might be joking, but in all seriousness, we would see a bigger boost in …

  • “Spooky” Krugman Says Alien Invasion Good for Economy

    We’ve come to save your economy. “The Truth is out there,” Special Agent Fox “Spooky” Mulder used to say on the television series The X-Files as he and his partner hunted down unexplained phenomena and searched for extraterrestial life. For Paul Krugman, economic Nobel Prize recipient, the truth is way, way out there as he …

  • The Regime’s Shill is At It Again

    Economic Shill in Chief, Paul Krugman, came out with a deserved but hypocritical criticism of the Maestro, former Federal Reserve Chairman Alan Greenspan, yesterday. He pens: He’s the man who presided over an economy careening to the worst economic crisis since the Great Depression — and who saw no evil, heard no evil, refused to …

  • Paul Krugman and Bob Murphy to Debate Business Cycle Theory?!

    From an LRC blog post by Tom Woods: Many Austrians have tried to get Krugman to debate business cycle theory.  He’s too busy and too sophisticated to debate an Austrian, of course.  Until now. Economist Robert Murphy has come up with a clever way to make this happen.  Through a website called The Point, people …

  • Contrary to What the Money Magicians Say …

    … our economy is headed south. And not in a warm way either. With people like Treasury Secretary Tim Geithner, as recent as two weeks ago, saying “Welcome to the Recovery,” is it any wonder that the economy is headed in the exactly opposite direction? Or there is Federal Reserve chairman Ben Bernanke who didn’t even …

  • Rick Santelli: “Stop Spending! Stop Spending! Stop Spending!”

    Rick Santelli is the Anti-Krugman. From the man who ignited the 2009 Tea Party rallies, comes this: “Go read some Austrian economist instead of the funny pages.” Santelli tells Liesman, to which the response is “I am ready to talk about Fred Hayek, John Hayek, and Selma Hayek.” Followed promptly by the Santelli coup du …

  • Mr. President, I’m calling your bluff.

    Paul Krugman is scared. He’s scared that the federal government will stop spending trillions of dollars that it doesn’t have and cause a depression. Leaders from around the world have been tightening their belts and have been wondering why Obama isn’t doing the same.  Now, Obama says he’s serious about the debt. President Obama on …

  • Palmer on the Broken Window Fallacy

    In a lucid explanation of the Frederic Bastiat’s broken window fallacy, Cato’s Tom Palmer explains why destruction of property and mass murder doesn’t stimulate the economy, contra Keynesians like Paul “9/11 could do economic good” Krugman:

  • Schiff Destroys Krugman

    Usually Peter Schiff rambles in his video blogs, but in this one he says so much and utterly destroys Paul Krugman (not that its too hard). Its unfortunate that even though Peter Schiff is consistently right about stocks and economic policy, he is still ignored.
