Ep. 120 Krugman Tries to Explain Away the 2017 Economy
Contra Krugman with Bob Murphy and Tom Woods
Immediately after the 2016 election, Krugman predicted markets would “never” recover, but after a strong 2017, Krugman is suddenly reminded that presidents don’t have much influence over the economy after all. But if we should need more stimulus, he says, we’ll be sorry we don’t have a Keynesian in office.
