Krugman's One-Sided Book: Arguing With Zombies.
3/11/2020--The Pennsylvania Capital-Star today published my column criticizing Democrats and liberals for their fixation on overturning the Citizens United case in particular and the power of big money to control politics in general. But another theme of the column is that New York Times columnist Paul Krugman, in criticizing so-called zombie ideas--ideas that are discredited by evidence but never go away--is partisan. The Right has a number of these bad ideas, such as that tax cuts pay for themselves, but liberals have them too. Krugman ignores that.
