Good on yer, Krugman

 Continuing on a theme, congratulations to Paul Krugman of the New York Times for his Nobel prize in economics. For my money, Krugman for many years now has been the best columnist on the Times' op-ed page, and one of the best in the business, period. His liberalism comes in large part from a place that is grounded in hard economics, which makes him both hard to refute, and able to refute mindless conservative free-market dogma.

For example, since the brouhaha over the uber-costly financial bailout erupted a couple of weeks ago, Krugman has been hitting hard on the need for taxpayers to receive an equity stake in return for their rescue of investment in the financial sector. And now it looks like it's going to happen.

Let's hope Paulson & Co. keep reading their Krugman.

Wall Street suffered through another volatile session today.
The Dow Jones plunged as much as 800 points — the largest EVER one-day point drop — before recovering to close with a loss of three hundred seventy.
The selling spree took the Dow below 10,000 points for the first time in four years.
Investors have apparently come to the realization that the Bush administration's 700 billion dollar rescue plan is not sufficient to unfreeze the credit markets.
Meanwhile, Standard and Poor reports that the US economy is down nearly thirty percent from the October 2007 peak.  
Fourteen percent of this drop has occurred since September 1st, 2008.

Chalmers Johnson's latest book, Nemesis: The Last Days of the American Republic, warned of the possibility of a profligate, militarized U.S.
