    HURT: Tripping over income inequality with intellectual shoelaces

    A French "thinker" writes a book about global poverty and, predictably, The New York Times goes limp in the knees. All out was the putsch last week by the Gray Lady's opinion staff to promote the book aimed at toppling the evil rich around the world. Leading this charge was the paper's famous, bearded Marxist Emeritus columnist Paul Krugman.

  • President Barack Obama pauses as he speaks about the new health care law, Tuesday, Dec. 3, 2013, in the South Court Auditorium in the Eisenhower Executive Office Building on the White House complex in Washington. The president said his signature health care law "is working and will work into the future." Obama said the benefits of the law have "gotten lost" in recent months as attention focused on the widespread problems that crippled the website where people can sign up for health insurance.

    EDITORIAL: Asteroid stimulus

    Great rocks have tumbled from the sky since there was an Earth for them to tumble on, but the asteroid falling in Russia's Ural Mountains was the largest caught live on film. Dramatic footage shows pieces of a 10,000-ton cosmic object streaking through the atmosphere, glowing brighter than the sun.

    TYRRELL: A misapplied conservative label

    It has happened again. Sam Tanenhaus, the editor of The New York Times Book Review, referred to by Paul Krugman the other day as "a longtime conservative," has essayed in the New Republic the modern conservative movement and traced us all back to John C. Calhoun.

    RAHN: Desperate Keynesians

    What do you do if the facts don't support your beliefs? If you are honest, you will rethink what you previously believed. If you are a Keynesian economist, though, like New York Times columnist Paul Krugman, you make silly assertions.

    EDITORIAL: Emulating Estonia

    Europe is in big trouble. Unemployment remains sky-high, and economic growth averaged a mere 1.2 percent in 2011, with some economies continuing to shrink. Estonia is a remarkable exception to the depressing trend.

  • BOOK REVIEW: 'Money in a Free Society'

    In early 2009, two of President Obama's economic advisers predicted that a stimulus package could keep American unemployment below 8 percent. Needless to say, that hasn't panned out. There's now a bipartisan consensus that the administration's stimulus efforts didn't work.

    RAHN: Government spending jobs myth

    Do increases in government spending increase or decrease the number of jobs? Conventional wisdom is they will increase jobs, and a few left-wing economists, such as Paul Krugman of the New York Times, frequently are trotted out by reckless politicians and some in the news media to argue that we need more government spending in order to create jobs. If this were true, we should be able to see it in the historical evidence, so let's look at the numbers.

Quotations
  • Paul Krugman, a Nobel Prize winner in economics, writes, "We are now, I fear, in the early stages of a third depression. It will probably look more like the Long Depression than the much more severe Great Depression. But the cost - to the world economy and, above all, to the millions of lives blighted by the absence of jobs - will nonetheless be immense."
