Hate mail of the week

I posted about Krugman's column at DetNews today. My favorite response:
Liberal Hand-wringing and Backpeddling

We real economists, those of us who work in the real world, own businesses, make a payroll, and produce tangible things in life, and teach on the side, habitually laugh at Krugman and his "economics". Only an ivory tower economist and newspaper pundit would think that more spending and more debt, are needed to cure us of......spending and debt. Idiot.

Oh wait, I guess Libby Spencer believes this as well. Who would think that two people so ignorant could actually exist in the world.

To be fair, he didn't write the title. He was riffing off another critic's comment, but he consistently criticizes Krugman as a failed economist. I believe he's the same guy who told me he had to lay off his independent contractor because of tax consequences that don't take effect until 2011. But he has all the answers...

Technically you can't lay-off an independent contractor. But so many people (Microsoft, for one) use so-called independent contractors like myself as virtually full-time employees to game the system.

By doing this, they don't have to pay any of the benefits that employees are legally entitled to. In other words, they're selfish bastards. like your faux economist.

Exactly Steve. Big business has been using that scam for decades now.
