Economist Paul Krugman appeared on BBC’s Newsnight on Tuesday. He spoke about Austerity Europe and agreed with Kevin O’Rourke’s summation that our government is working against our best interests.
Professor Krugman said:
“I talked to some Irish economists. They’re pointing out that the government in Ireland is really acting against the interests of the people of Ireland but in its own interests by saying oh look, we’re good, we’re anti, we’re good on austerity, we’re good on reform. So therefore, the Greeks should do it as well”
