    I think the level of complicity of the Iranian government is getting pretty blown out of proportion. Nobody's claiming that Ahmadinejad ordered a hit on him or anything like that, just that people who are high up were involved.

    In West Wing terms, it's not like

    In which Krugman answers a question:
    Why Believe In Keynesian Models?

    A correspondent asks a good question: what evidence makes me believe that Keynesian economics is broadly right, given the relative absence of experience with large fiscal stimulus programs?

    ...

    Mainly I’d stress the first point. We have a model of the way the world works, and the world does indeed seem to work that way. And an implication of that model is that fiscal stimulus will work under conditions like those we face now. If interest rates had soared, if the rise in base money had led to rising GDP and/or soaring prices despite the zero lower bound, I would have sat down to reconsider what I thought I knew about macroeconomics. In fact, however, my preferred model has passed the test of events with flying colors, while the other guys’ models have been totally wrong.

    I suspect this is a bad answer - not that it's wrong, but that it's too complicated for simple intuition vis a vis the points that, say, the neo-Austrians like to make. I would have just remarked upon the correlation between money, consumption, and investment.

    More sanctions against Iran, I suppose. I do not rate a war as likely.

    The audience being wagged to, if there is wagging, is probably people in Saudi Arabia than in DC...

    Their implementation of this free to play model is not only the most confusing way to handle it, but also in many areas one of the worst ways to implement it, as we said last night.

    Krugman doesn't write for people like you though Ronya. He writes for people with at most a basic understand of economic theory in his NY Times articles. Basically try and answer the question in a way that say CC or Arch or even me who are non-economist would understand.

    Would this blog post not be aimed at the lay public, rather than the economists amongst us?

    BTW, DAoC was one of the best "community" MMOs. WoW just got everything that bugged me about having to deal with community down pat. Whereas DAoC you just ostracized the person for being a dickhead and suddenly they couldn't do shit with anyone.

    It was, really I miss the community aspect of that game. It never ever appeared in other mmo I have played. There was a point where you knew most the 50's on your side and a lot of them on the enemy side since it was the same people you ran with all the time.

    The paladin class community rep was actually a good friend of my mine when I played. Since I played a 2-H pally I gave him so much crap to give us an equal standing to shield pallies.

    Yeah, it looks like being VIP gives you access. And apparently I'm up to like the fifth tier of rewards due to previous play. Which means starting with a damn movement power. And while most of VW's costume is easy to make, there are two issues. First is that I can't have Wings + Cape. Just one. The second is the chest emblem. He's got a very specific one. But other then that, his costume is straight out of comics 101.

    Oh, Ronya my post came out too snappy. I meant he writes for non-economist in his blog and op-eds. So there is a reductionism that occurs to get his point across and not be bogged down in the dense language economics and other social sciences can get into when talking theory.

    Well - did you understand his point?

    When Krugman says - well, look, my model makes these correct claims and their models are falsified, those not already in the choir can just trot down to Right-Wing Blog #1 to see a counter-claim saying exactly the inverse, providing quotes from where Krugman was less circumspect and such. So I suspect that this isn't terribly convincing at the margin.

    I don't know how to render the relationship between money, consumption, and investment into an appealing form, but it is a relationship that is difficult to intuitively justify except in broadly Keynesian strokes. So is a claim about fiscal stimulus and changes in money base aggregates at the zero bound, but this latter relationship is even more so, and without grabbing hold of one's mental model of the economy there is a perennial tendency to fall back into folk-economics mode.

    I feel uncomfortable with how popular Krugman is amongst people who don't understand him 90% of the time, but are happy to quote him. I guess a Nobel would do that to one's reputation, but still don't like it.
    Not intended for anybody in this thread as I don't even know if he was mentioned before the picture.

    Edit:
    Krugman doesn't write for people like you though Ronya. He writes for people with at most a basic understand of economic theory in his NY Times articles.

    I don't agree with that at all, unless the word basic changed meaning at some point.

    Basically the models he uses and what has occurred(still low borrowing rates for the US government and no rapid inflation) has shown it is still time to borrow and use that money to increase demand by certain styles of stimulus programs. But if the inverse happened he would have to rework his view on macroeconomics and look for different models to explain how the economy works.
