KRUGMAN-'US ruled by fear of nonexistent threats+promised rewards that havenít arrived & never will' [View all]

So what do we learn from the rather pathetic search for austerity success stories? We learn that the doctrine that has dominated elite economic discourse for the past three years is wrong on all fronts. Not only have we been ruled by fear of nonexistent threats, weíve been promised rewards that havenít arrived and never will. Itís time to put the deficit obsession aside and get back to dealing with the real problem ó namely, unacceptably high unemployment.
