Paul Krugman’s Solution to End This Depression Now!

"The truth is that recovery would be almost ridiculously easy to achieve: all we need is to reverse the austerity policies of the past couple of years and temporarily boost spending. Never mind all the talk of how we have a long-run problem that can’t have a short-run solution—this may sound sophisticated, but it isn’t. With a boost in spending, we could be back to more or less full employment faster than anyone imagines."

-Paul Krugman, Nobel Prize-winning economist and author of End This Depression Now! quoted in the article “How To End This Depression" from The New York Review of Books
