Paul Krugman is the NY Times economics columnist tasked with the goal of explaining why any free market achievement is really a horrific disaster and that persons escaping poverty aren’t really that thrilled about the change. He even won a Nobel Prize. I think it was for Economic Fiction but I don’t see any purpose in checking it out.
Anyhow, during the reign of the Emperor Obama Ignoramus the First (EOIF), when the government did it all it could to delay the economic recovery, Paul Krugman chirped in with a brilliant suggestion. The way to get out of the recession would be for the Emperor to prepare for a war with Mars. After all, it is common knowledge among economists that King Roosevelt the Wretched, having failed to lift us sufficiently out of the depression with his various Hitler-style economic programs, managed to rescue the country by getting us into war with Germany and Japan.
Following the defeat of Hillary (Pay up or Shut up) Clinton by Donald (No Vagina) Trump, Krugman presciently and brilliantly predicted the immediate financial and economic devastation of the United States. With the stock market shooting to record heights, unemployment shrinking to multi-decade lows, African-Americans reaching never-before-seen levels of prosperity, consumer confidence at rarely seen highs, and middle income people receiving tax cuts, one has to admit Krugman was right on target. Who else could have predicted such a disaster? The N.Y. Times is lucky to have him.
Krugman’s gleaming insights were so mind-numbing that even the Trump administration found a new respect for Krugman’s analytic skills. Just the other day, Trump adopted the economic development plan Krugman proposed to Emperor Obama and announced his administration wants to establish a military space force. He immediately ordered NASA to find evidence of life on Mars so that the Joint Chiefs of Staff can prepare a battle plan to repel the invasion.
Has Krugman finally normalized Trump?
