#152: Silence is Golden Deafening...

P. Krugman KRUGMAN TRUTH SQUAD

Paul Krugman is AWOL. After making "jobs, jobs, jobs…" the center piece (or better yet, the "only" piece) of his economic attacks on the Bush administration, he fell silent today [LINK 1] and did not comment on the spectacular employment report last Friday, April 2, 2004. Neither did any of the other "jobless recovery" publicists. Brad Delong, for example, gave it two sentences on his web site [LINK2]. The silence is deafening.

[The Truth Squad is a group of economists who have long marveled at the writings of Paul Krugman. The Squad Reports are synopses of their discussions. ]

How's the song go? "Mister, We Could Use a Man Like Herbert Hoover Again..."
