Don Boudreaux’s latest take on Krugman’s ‘austerity’ claims

I’m letting Don Boudreaux provide the answer today to Paul Krugman’s claim that Great Britain’s government is following a policy of “austerity.” (By the way, “austerity” is nothing more than government not engaging in reckless borrowing and spending. I guess if I am not trying to get as many credit cards and maxing out of them, then my household is in an “austerity” pattern, and all of us know about the dastardly Paradox of Thrift of which Krugman warns.)

Take it away, Don.
