Updated* Paul Krugman says the US should threaten sanctions against China

I didn't know whether to file this one under the "war & peace" category or under "economy", but it'd fit into either one. It's important to watch the movements of our intellectual (and I use that term very loosely) opposition closely simply because they are in control of our government right now.

Paul Krugman writes: "The dire state of the world economy reflects destructive actions on the part of many players. Still, the fact that so many have behaved badly shouldn't stop us from holding individual bad actors to account.

New song I just wrote "Too Many Washintons"

This is a song I just wrote today and I hope to record it soon. I thought I would put the lyrics up here and see what you all thought and what you get out of it because it has multiple meanings. Ron Paul 2012!

I hear it all the time

we're approaching the end of the line

and I'm one of those who agree

the numbers are there for those with willing eyes to see

I understand why some may argue the case

they're the fools to blame for everything that's taking place

they turn their backs to the wall

and it's enough for me to say to hell with it all

Paul Krugman vs. Ron Paul and Friedrich Hayek

by Jeremy R. Hammond
September 17, 2011

Paul Krugman tried to slam Ron Paul in his most recent column by writing:

Back in 1980, just as America was making its political turn to the right, Milton Friedman lent his voice to the change with the famous TV series “Free to Choose.” In episode after episode, the genial economist identified laissez-faire economics with personal choice and empowerment, an upbeat vision that would be echoed and amplified by Ronald Reagan.

But that was then. Today, “free to choose” has become “free to die.”

Anyone else find people saying "Keynesian Economics" as strange?

With Rick Perry mentioning Keynesian Economics in the debate and this video of Paul Ryan (below), I get a strange feeling every time people say the word. Anyone else think its weird when politicians other than Ron Paul talk about Keynesianism?

Bowling Green Daily News: Rand Paul blasts Obama’s nomination of Krueger (blast is an understatement)

Rand Paul just implied that Obama might be fitting the definition of "insane". Here he goes after Keynesians, war, taxes, jobs, and class warfare. I'm so glad we got him into the senate! A thoroughly enjoyable article!!!

"Following a speech to the Bowling Green Rotary Club on Wednesday, U.S. Sen. Rand Paul, R-Ky., harshly criticized President Barack Obama’s nomination of Alan Krueger to become chairman of the White House Council of Economic Advisers."

Rick Perry: The Keynesian Disciple

Rick Perry has become a successful politician reinventing himself to fit the political trends over his very long career. Perry's political career started as a Democrat. He was head of Al Gore's Texas Campaign for President in 1988. Rick Perry abruptly switched to the Republican Party in 1989. The timing of his conversion was at a period when Texas was in the process of becoming a Republican dominated Red State. Over time Rick Perry has reinvented himself on many issues with the exception of economics. Presidential candidate Rick Perry is portraying himself as a free market capitalist.
