Douch-bag "economist" Paul Krugman is a fucking gutless turd who isn't man enough to debate Robert Murphy. Yes, Paul Krugman criticized Murphy for predicting that the quantitative easing practiced by the Federal Reserve in the late 2000s would create double-digit inflation. And these predictions did not come to fruition. But so what?
And Murphy has expressed skepticism about evolution, asserting that he "can literally prove evolution is false". But, while I agree with Murphy that evolution is a totally bogus theory, he doesn't agree with my theory which is that life on earth was created in a lab by super-intelligent AI robots, who then seeded the galaxy.
Instead Murphy subscribes to a literal interpretation of the Bible. Because he's a Christian who believes in the imaginary Christian "God". Ridiculous? Yes. But not as ridiculous as Paul Krugman. This wack-job actually believes that the AI robots who created us (or other alien beings) are planning an invasion of earth that we need to prepare for! Maybe he got the idea from the 1996 sci-fi film Independance Day?
Who knows? We do know, however, that the insane Krugman thinks that the world should be building up its military in preparation for this coming alien invasion and that a side benefit of such a massive misallocation of resources would in fact pull the world out of recession. So it would be good, even if the invasion never materialized. Although Krugman is positive it will.
Could Krugman be suffering from some form of mental illness? I say the answer is a definite YES. Not only that, but I think Krugman's mental illness is quite severe, in that the dude is obviously delusional. He might suggesting that the Treasury mint a few of those trillion dollar coins to pay for the "needed" military buildup in order to repel the invading space aliens. What a nutjob, huh?
