Must see interview of Krugman by Moyers

Here is a wonderful interview of Paul Krugman by Bill Moyers. What is great about this is that it is long enough for Krugman to make his case clearly.

I was particularly gratified by his pointing out that journalists have forgotten how to ask "Why?" In this blog, from the first few posts, I have bemoaning two things. One is that journalists don't ask Republicans why they think that cutting taxes and government will grow the economy, given the massive evidence against this. The other is that Obama doesn't make the Keynesian case to the public in general. He would force the journalists to talk about it, and then for the Republi-cons to actually reply on point.
