What a pleasure to be joined once again by David Stockman! I strongly urge you to visit his blog and check out his latest book, The Great Deformation (see below).
- Financial reporters whose articles take Keynesianism as an unstated starting point
- Is the apparent Chinese prosperity real?
- If China’s economy suffers a reversal, how would this affect the American consumer and economy?
- Why did a Harvard professor recently urge the abolition of cash?
- How can Paul Krugman claim that nonexistent “austerity” failed, but not think Japan’s experiment in Keynesianism failed?
- What’s the story in Japan?
