Paul Krugman Optimism on the Economy

Paul Krugman has a tiny glimmer of optimism that austerity is finally being being eased out of the economic debate.  I am sorry to say that I haven't noticed that in the UK, where George Osborne seems unfazed by his spectacular wrongness on ever...

Paul Krugman and Derp
