Zombie Ideas in Krugman’s Op-Ed

November 16, 2012

Same Zombie Idea as from his blog yesterday, now in his regular op-ed column, “Life, Death and Deficits” by Paul Krugman:

America’s political landscape is infested with many zombie ideas — beliefs about policy that have been repeatedly refuted with evidence and analysis but refuse to die. The most prominent zombie is the insistence that low taxes on rich people are the key to prosperity. But there are others.

And right now the most dangerous zombie is probably the claim that rising life expectancy justifies a rise in both the Social Security retirement age and the age of eligibility for Medicare.
