Krugman actually cites to an MMT link!
First of all, yes, I have read various MMT manifestos — this one is fairly clear as they go [snort]. I do dislike the style — the claims that fundamental principles of logic lead to a worldview that only fools would fail to understand has a sort of eerie resemblance to John Galt’s speech in Atlas Shrugged — but that shouldn’t matter.
I like "manifestos." Heaven forfend that Professor Krugman should treat
MMT advocates as academically qualified professionals who write papers, instead of issuing manifestoes! And the Galt snark really slips in the ol' shiv....
When you can blog like that... Well, I'm thinking Professor Krugman really missed his metier!
NOTE * Swedish Central Bank Award-winner Krugman must be reading the blog that everybody hates and nobody reads. Because far as I know -- it's a big blogosphere -- Corrente's been the only blog pointing out that Krugman has consistently failed to cite to MMT sources when debating MMT. So, baby steps. Would it be too much for Krugman to cite to a source that's more institutionally based? Like UMKC's New Economic Perspectives, which has a fine MMT primer? Of course, Krugman might also consider citing to primary sources. That is, after all, what a scholar would do.
