The thing is, I’m also 50% convinced that Krugman is to Keynesians as Richard Perle is to neoconservatives. When an embittered ideologue derides his political leader for demonstrating a willingness to compromise and “negotiating with yourself,” well, one does get the sense of deja vu.
The rhetorical parallels between neocons and Keynesians are increasingly disturbing. Martin Wolf argued late last week that “shock and awe” is required to stimulate the global economy — a point seconded by Krugman. Critics of the Keynesian approach are summarily dismissed as wingnuts.
