re: An Uncharacteristically *Decent* Half of an Article from Krugman


I think your situation is not uncommon, that people gets saddled with debt that largely negates their higher paying job for the nouce, and the only real benefit is the fact that your employer is still matching/profit sharing based on that higher rate of pay.

I think the shite hits the fan when the concept of "too much" and need to take the weight of your "fair share" starts to hit into the current generation of middle/upper middle classers.

Everything will fall apart on way or another at that point.

Ya I max out my 401k and stuff like that so I have something.

What's interesting to think about is that 7 questions I normally get right and took 10 minutes to answer on the LSAT basically cost me $30,000 when I got them wrong. Could have been a bubble error for all I know

I don't think deblasio is pushing universal preschool because of educational opportunities, I think he is pushing it so that parents can actually work more instead of staying home and watching their kids because daycare is so expensive.

I want both children and adults to be properly skilled for whatever job they have. Educational subsidies have done wonders in adequately providing poorer adults with a chance to build skills.

Krugman


I don't like him personally, but if you go back and read his archives over the past decade, he was dead-on on a variety of topics while publications like the WSJ were blowing happy smoke. He even predicted the housing bubble.
