But three! Three! Three mints in one!
Krugman says, "It’s time to raise Keynes: we need big fiscal stimulus, now now now."
What part of the word three(3) don't these stimulus addicts understand?
Two: expanded consumption.
Three: working less.
What John Maynard Keynes wrote. In May 1943. "The Long-Term Problem of Full Employment."
In the final phase of post-war economic performance,
"It becomes necessary to encourage wise consumption and discourage saving,--and to absorb some part of the unwanted surplus by increased leisure, more holidays (which are a wonderfully good way of getting rid of money) and shorter hours."
But talking about shorter hours is anathema to post-Samuelson Anglo-American economists. Why? You need to talk about ingredient three, Paul. NOW NOW NOW.
