Ep. 165 Why Did a Booming Economy Hit a Snag? (You’ll Never Guess Krugman’s Answer….)
Contra Krugman with Bob Murphy and Tom Woods
Brazil’s economy was booming and everything looked great, and then it suffered a severe slump. What the heck happened? Well, whether or not you’re interested in Brazil you’ll be interested in Krugman’s attempted answers and our replies. (You’ll also be shocked to learn that Krugman has quietly changed his position on Brazil, hoping no one would notice. No such luck, Paul.)
