If you read only one op-ed a year, make it this one. Paul Krugman, our ace economist and Nobel Laureate is one of the few cognoscenti who really seems to grok the U.S. Economy. He also has 20/10 vision which he uses to pierce the fog of lies surrounding what goes for political discourse these days.
The piece is short, no formulae, and puts a heap of hurt on those who deserve it the most, that's right, the Repub-lie-can party and their propaganda arm, Faux News. Take a peek and watch a master work.
