Krugman’s War on Jobs


Paul Krugman recently wrote an op-ed titled ‘War on the Unemployed’.  He blames unemployment on Republican cruelty and bad economics.   Aside from Krugman’s partisanship, his economic theories are absurd.  Krugman states falsely that unemployed job searchers who accept lower wages won’t encourage job growth.  Although employees may find it difficult to accept lower wages, businesses  need to offer lower wages to survive and create more jobs.   Furthermore, everyone’s share of the $17 trillion national debt continues to accelerate precisely because of the welfare programs that Krugman supports.  Until Krugman’s and Government’s War on Jobs continues, difficult economic times will persist.
