DEBT? WHAT DEBT?….Paul Krugman thinks

DEBT? WHAT DEBT?….Paul Krugman thinks that as deficits pile on top of deficits, the most likely solution is for the government to simply print money by the cartload and inflate away the debt.

Scott Martens says, “Bring it on!” In fact, the more the better:

The next time you run into a Bush supporter, thank them for me for subsidising my life. Remind them that, thanks to Dubya and his damn-foolishness, every time they make a mortgage payment or send money to their credit card, there is a liberal, non-American computer programmer who’s getting to see the world on their money.

Heh heh.
