Krugman On Warren

Filed under: economics — Tags: , , — Walter Ebmeyer @ 8:06 am

Today our favorite economist, Paul Krugman, writes about our favorite bureaucrat, Elizabeth Warren.  His subject is the Republicans’ desperate attempt to blame her for our financial problems and erase memories of what really caused the Crash of 2008.  Last week House Republicans tried the same thing: how dare she talk with state attorneys general about moving against guilty banksters.  How dare she set up a consumer protection agency that could obviate the sort of crimes their bankster friends perpetrated?   Krugman is good today.  Elizabeth Warren is always good.

The Rich Are Different

Our favorite economist writes about the white-hot anger among the rich.  There’s talk of raising their taxes!  You’d better read it, Muffy.
