“Thus, in his speech Obama attributed the economic crisis in part to ‘our collective failure to make hard choices and prepare the nation for a new age’ ? but I have no idea what he meant. This is, first and foremost, a crisis brought on by a runaway financial industry. And if we failed to rein in that industry, it wasn’t because Americans ‘collectively’ refused to make hard choices; the American public had no idea what was going on, and the people who did know what was going on mostly thought deregulation was a great idea.”
Columnist van de NYT en Nobelprijswinnaar Paul Krugman is teleurgesteld over Obama’s vaagheid over de economie.
