Somewhat apropos of PC's comment here, and in response to Paul Krugman's column today saying that his economic stimulus falls short of what's needed, Barack Obama announces that he's open for ideas:
If Paul Krugman has a good idea in terms of how to spend money efficiently and effectively to jump-start the economy, then we're gonna do it.
One guess as to what Krugman's next column is about...
The free lunch crowd like Krugman is simply on the side of government now, not the private sector like 2002-2006 when risk didn't matter.
