Austerity refuted, again, and again, and again...

Paul Krugman's latest column is another marshaling of evidence that austerity doesn't make economies grow. He repeats arguments he's been making in his blog, but it's good to have them in one place. Yet the TV news goes on as if all of this disastrous consequences of government cutbacks was not happening now, in Europe, and here. The imperviousness of public discourse to evidence is depressing.
