Krugman Demanded a Housing Bubble
Everybody should know that Nobel prize winner and archetypal mainstream Keynesian economist Paul Krugman was demanding a housing bubble in 2001 and 2002.
To fight this recession the Fed needs more than a snapback; it needs soaring household spending to offset moribund business investment. And to do that, as Paul McCulley of Pimco put it, Alan Greenspan needs to create a housing bubble to replace the Nasdaq bubble.
The little problem that the economics profession won’t face up to yet is that Keynesianism has been dead wrong from its very conception. The urgent task for everybody else is to stop these people from inflicting their policies on us for any longer.
