Paul Krugman’s got zombie skills

March 29, 2014

NYTimes: “The Skills Zombie” by Paul Krugman.

a zombie doctrine — that is, a doctrine that should be dead by now, having been repeatedly refuted by evidence, but just keeps on shambling along.

Ok so it seems “zombie doctrine” are the same as zombie ideas and zombie lies.

In this post Krugman addresses two zombies:

our work force lacks essential skills

and

the deficit obsession that almost completely dominated establishment thinking from late 2009 until very recently

and concluding:

disasters brought on by inadequate demand have an easy economic answer — just spend more!
