Ep. 166 Krugman’s Recent Q&A: His (Lousy) Answers, and Ours

Contra Krugman with Bob Murphy and Tom Woods

Episode

Krugman took questions last week on Quora, and they spanned a wide range:   — Has Keynesian economics failed America? — What are the causes of inequality? — What will Trump’s long-term economic legacy be? — Why haven’t wages increased alongside corporate profits? — Would universal basic income work? — Can Krugman refute “trickle-down” economics? — and a whole bunch more.   In this episode, we critique Krugman’s answers and offer our own.   Show notes for Ep. 166
