I bought some stock today. Now I'm a job creator. According to some.... But who knows.... if the $100M+ crowd lost their wealth to redistribution.... maybe some of the income to the non 0.001% could invest, too?.... Hmmmmm....

Restating the mildewed "benefits" of neoliberal free trade doesn't make them true. At minimum, if you can't recognize the conflicts that neoliberal free trade create among the "losers" as well as the oligarchs, who are the primary winners - and acknowledge the dangers (e.g. extremist/radical right wing populist uprisings) that it foments - then your theory is a failure for not considering ALL the impacts.

"Lol at the unintentional irony of this comment." LOL... the comparison to VSPs, against which Krugman has railed for years, was completely intentional. Not a surprise that you would miss it. Now, don't you have a protest against Russia to get to or any other windmills to charge?

They're an angry lot.... and they, like the conservative "affinity fraudsters" that Krugman has lambasted over the years, refuse to accept reality. Instead, they hunker down, shut out facts, and surround themselves only with people and information that agrees with their flawed opinions.

Uh, look back at the year in the quote you took from my comment.... 2008... she lost in the primary. I said nothing about her electoral college defeat in 2016. But if I HAD, it would've been to point out that she got 5M or so fewer Dem votes than Obama did in 2012, indicating, to the consternation of the shriek twins (pgl and anne), that the polls showing her negatives were, in fact, real and had a real impact on the election. The results are the results and no amount of high volume trolling can change it (just ask the paid trolls from Correct the Record to see how well they helped out clinton).

Funny!... coming from someone who posts 470 comments on this one per day...

Since I am only noting objection to one blogger who invested much of his personal credibility into promoting a horrible leader, I don't see the relevance of your comment at all. I enjoy pretty much every other blogger to which Thoma links. My issue is with highlighting a crank whose writing has cratered over the last year. If a Trump ripping is due (and it usually is), then I'm fine with it being a feature so long as it's written by someone who isn't channeling Niall Ferguson and with the same degree of credibility as a political "wonk".

If he actually stuck to economics instead of politics, I wouldn't have written the comment.

When can we please start tuning Krugman down here? He aided and abetted the election disaster by being one of the most prominent Very Serious People leading the offensive against Sanders and promoting a fatally flawed candidate that was beaten resoundingly in 2008 and with irredeemable, self-inflicted, negative baggage. He may make good points here after-the-fact, but they're all "duh!" level bits of analysis at this stage. And the last thing I want to hear from any of the VSPs who piloted the train over the cliff during this election season is b*tching about the mess at the bottom of the cliff. Aren't there ANY other voices with some remaining shred of political credibility that can be quoted here instead of the unabashed VSPs who helped elect trump?

Meanwhile, the Krug-meister has dug up Joe McCarthy.... rumors are that he runs around with smoldering sticks in his hair a la Yellowbeard. Anyone care enough to execute an intervention?
