Krugman’s blog, 2/18/17mgpaquin

Mon, 20 Feb 2017 13:03:11 +0000

There was one post on Saturday, “Trump’s Rosy Scenario:” The WSJ reports that the Trump administration’s budget planning assumes very high economic growth over the next decade — between 3 and 3.5 percent annually. How was this number arrived at? Basically, they worked backwards, assuming the growth they needed to make their budget numbers add […](image)

Blow and Krugmanmgpaquin

Mon, 20 Feb 2017 13:00:11 +0000

In “Harry and Sidney: Soul Brothers” Mr. Blow offers on their 90th birthdays, an ode to two of the most remarkable men of our time.  Prof. Krugman has a question in “On Economic Arrogance:”  Why do Republicans imagine they can deliver growth?  Here’s Mr. Blow: Please allow me to divert my gaze for one day away […](image)

Ms. Collins, in “Mr. Trump, Our 15th President Thanks You,” says James Buchanan’s days as the worst American leader may be numbered.  Here she is: There’s a bright side to everything. It’s true that Donald Trump could turn out to be the worst American president ever. But think how happy that’s going to make James Buchanan […](image)

Today Bobo has decided to tell us all about “What a Failed Trump Administration Looks Like.”  He gurgles that without grown-ups in charge, the government could stop working.  “Don Shipp” from Homestead, FL will have something to say.  Prof. Krugman has a question in “The Silence of the Hacks:”  Is subversion in the defense of […](image)

Blow, Kristof, and Collinsmgpaquin

In “Drip, Drip, Drip” Mr. Blow says what we know about Russia only makes what we don’t know more ominous.  Mr. Kristof has a question:  “What Did Trump Know, and When Did He Know It?”  He says dots involving Russia are begging to be connected.  Ms. Collins says “Well, Trump Watchers, Things Could Be Worse,” and that […](image)

The Moustache of Wisdom has a question:  “Mr. Trump, Will You Save the Jews?”  He seems to believe that Mr. Trump may be the last person who can preserve the hope of a two-state solution to the Israeli-Palestinian conflict.   As if…  Mr. Bruni says “Flynn Is Exactly What Trump Deserves,” and that our cavalier president […](image)

Bobo is now wringing his hands and has started pondering the question of “How Should One Resist the Trump Administration?”  He gurgles that depending on what kind of threat Donald Trump represents, there are historical models for resistance.  And, of course, in his last graf he winds up blaming the dirty hippies.  Today “Rw” from Canada […](image)

In “The Power of Disruption” Mr. Blow tells us history shows that it works.  Prof. Krugman, in “Ignorance Is Strength,” says what they don’t know can hurt them, but also us.  Here’s Mr. Blow: The Trump resistance movement is stretching its wings, engaging its muscles and feeling its power. It is large and strong and tough. […](image)

In “Footing the Bill for the Trumps” Ms. Collins points out that on the public’s dime, the first family is costing a pretty penny. It’s curious behavior considering the president’s 2011 complaints about the Obamas.  Here she is: All these Trumps are getting damned expensive. Last month, taxpayers forked over nearly $100,000 to protect Eric Trump […](image)

Bobo wants someone to come up with “A Gift for Donald Trump,” and he frets over what to give the man who has everything.  “Ross McLaurin” from Houston, TX will have something to say…  In “Preserving the Sanctity of All Facts” Mr. Cohen says in a new era of “alternative facts” and the talk of “fact-based” journalism, […](image)
