Paul Krugman: At the intersection of economic stupidity and politics

heraldtribune.com — Bill Clinton's 1992 campaign famously focused on "the economy, stupid." But macroeconomic policy - what to do about recessions - has been largely absent from this year's election discussion.Yet economic risks have by no means been banished from the world.

The Political Economy of Interest Rates Revisited

krugman.blogs.nytimes.com — A few months back there was a debate over the sources of pressure on the Fed to raise rates; part of what drove that debate was the clear division between Fed insiders, like Stan Fischer, who seemed eager to raise rates, and outsiders, like Larry Summers and myself, who were strenuously against a rate hike.

The time-loop party

hawaiitribune-herald.com — By now, everyone who follows politics knows about Marco Rubio's software-glitch performance in Saturday's Republican debate. (I'd say broken-record performance, but that would be showing my age.) Not only did he respond to a challenge from Chris Christie about his lack of achievements by repeating, verbatim, the same line from his stump speech he used a moment earlier; when Christie mocked his canned delivery, he repeated the same line yet again.

Bonds on the Run

krugman.blogs.nytimes.com — While we obsess over domestic politics - not that there's anything wrong with that, since a lot depends on whether the next leader of the world's most powerful nation is a racist xenophobe, a sinister theocrat, an empty suit, or all of the above - something scary is going on in financial markets, where bond prices in particular are indicating near-panic.

Hard Money Men - NYTimes.com

krugman.blogs.nytimes.com — So what will happen in NH tomorrow? I have no idea. We must dispel with this notion that anyone has the slightest idea what they are doing. However, there seems to be a real possibility for one thing that seemed unlikely before the RubiOS bug manifested itself: that John Kasich will come in second on the Republican side.

Reminder: The path to President Trump nyti.ms/1UiTM96 via @NytimesKrugman

My electability ranking, fyi: 1. Clinton 2. Rubio 3. Trump 4. Sanders 5. Cruz. Clinton burnt but Rubio cooked = good for Dems on balance.

Bad night for establishments -- but beware false symmetry. Predictwise says Rubio to 23 from 61 a few days ago; Clinton from 84 to 81.

On the GOP side, it's like 2012 -- a frontrunner and a series of bubbles for challengers. Except that this year's Mitt Romney is ... Trump.

Prediction: By the fall, moderate Republican pundits will declare that given the Democrat’s flaws, Trump is the better choice.
