Krugman hates the middle class: Econo-nerd Paul Krugman hates the middle class. He hates them so much that now, in addition to maintaining his support for inflation inducing policies drives up their costs while keeping wages stagnant, he expects them to pay for a tax hike on some of the rich. Someone should tell this guy to mind his own business. But he doesn’t have his own business. He only has an incessant need to control all of ours.

It doesn’t matter, as long as what he writes and says feeds his sense of self-righteousness and overblown ego, he’s sure he’s correct.

Yeah lets jack the tax rate up to 91 percent. Watch how long these businesses hang around after a stupid move like that.

Krugman is a simpleton-he won a nobel, cause he blew the entire panel in sweden. The guy is a keynesian-and everyone knows keyenes himself said before his death, all of his theories were total bullshit-and he was wrong about everything. The fact that NYT has krugman, a total dipshit writing for them just goes to show that NYT is nothing more than an ideological propaganda machine for the communist far left. It isn’t hard to see.
I am praying for the day it is splattered over the front page of the NYT= PAUL KRUGMAN KILLED BY ANGRY MOB, ALONG WITH THE REST OF NYT STAFF

How about he comes to the realization that he’s a complete ass, and splatters his brains all over the front of the NYT building!

Of course everything today is just like 60 years ago. No global competition, unisex work force, fiat currency, etc. I’m to the point where I’m just tired of commenting on what this idiot writes.

Krugman is a Nimitz-class ass.

By taxing the rich, we mean taxing the rich, not the middle-class or whatever is left of it, no no no!

Funny that the baby boomers would be nostalgic for that era, since they are the ones that kind of ended it, to serve their own selfishness.

Trashing the house was fine as long as they would be gone by the time it collapsed, they´d get a nice retirement and to hell with the next generations but like one guy said in the Event Horizont film You are coming with me.

I am a proud boomer and I certainly didn’t do anything like what you describe. Neither did anyone I know. So watch your mouth child!

Yes yes, not all baby boomers are like that and younger/older people aren´t perfect either, we know that.

The thing is, there are more of one category than the other. Where it matters, the difference between the two was enough to make the difference between the survivale and potential destruction of an entire civilization.
As we already see in Britain and its death pannels, a difference between life and death for an increased number of baby boomers themselves.

Beside, who judged their parents as a generation? Don´t trust anyone over 30? I´ll return the favour to them.

What’s awsome is Krugman has never put anything he preaches into practice. He has never worked in the real world of buisness, & he would starve to death if he had to.

He lives in his Princeton bubble. Finance is the practical application of economics and you are right he’d starve because no going concern that wants to remain one would hire a theoretician to do actual work.
