Well, this is interesting. I hear that the not-so-good people at National Review are attacking me over something I said on my Google+ page. Except, I don’t have a Google+ page.Which means he did not say that if yesterday's Northeeast earthquake had caused more damage it would have been better for the economy. HOWEVER, he has said such about other events. For those of you that didn't listen to the broken window video on my earlier post on Krugman and the earthquake, I urge you to at least listen to the first few seconds of the video.
The only reason I posted a reference to the Google + Krugman comment (which Krugman now states is not his) is that it is completely in line with his thinking on disasters, death and damage. You will see what I mean when you listen to the video. Krugman won't be able to deny these comments.
The video is here.
Ask yourself, how is Krugman's shocking comments on these events different from wanting more damage from an earthquake.
