Stupidity is the only thing growing and booming in this nation now-a-days. I guess those European nations that tried this and still in the tank did something wrong.

Y'all are funny. You can't get around the facts that the article talks about so you ignore them or just post stupid sh*t that has no relevant meaning.

The underlying bases for rabidly insisting on debt control (Paul Ryan anyone?) has been shown to be based on erroneous data. Even the authors of the "data" are backing away from their error.
Just what is a conservative to do? I know…..come on "bore" you can do it...1-2-3...*YAWN*
brilliant.

cleo no doubt. I figured I was dealing with a 9 year old and you just confirmed it. Yer daddy lettin' you play on the computer again? Or is it that when your core beliefs are shown to be faulty you resort to infantilism? That's ok it happens a lot with the insecure.

The problem with liberals and pointy-heads like Krugman is that they think austerity ONLY refers to raising taxes and cutting government(which definitely needs cutting).)The typical Keynesian approach(also Obama's solution) is to raise taxes(which he has done)and spend more(aka his 8 billion dollar stimulus)which has proven to be useless.
What will work is to cut taxes while also cutting government spending.Putting money back into the hands of people who will spend it wisely and create demand will stimulate growth in the economy.

There are more than a few economists who disagree with you on the effects of the stimulus:

http://www.freakonomics.com/2012/07/25/the-se...
The Chicago school is well know for it's emphasis on Keynesian economic philosophy, right? The home of Arthur "supply side" Laffer himself.
I guess you're suggesting that you know more than they do. Maybe so, maybe so…..I know that I don't.
I don't see how it can be argued that the tax cuts and de regulation under George W. were beneficial to the economy. 2008 certainly didn't occur under Obama's economic policies. Obama rejected advice from Krugman in an attempt at a compromise with the likes of Paul Ryan and look what it got him, almost complete obstructionism from the conservatives. The faulty research from Harvard seems certain, so where does that leave the conservative definition and practice of "austerity"? Maybe you missed Friday's April's (and readjusted Feb & March) jobs report.Things are slowly getting better.

1)Yes I do know more than Keynesian economists.
2)The unemployment numbers under Bush NEVER got as high as it has REMAINED under Obama.
3)Perhaps you don't know history.This is the LONGEST non-postwar economic recovery in history.
4)Where are the jobs?This is a jobless recovery.How many times has Obama met with his jobs team in the last year?How many times has he been on vacation golfing during the same time period?You know the answer to both.
5)The facts are tough to take.
