As I said in the post you quoted when the economy is rolling along on its own.
when have we seen government do this in the past 20 years?
That is exactly what supply siders will tell you is happening when they are slashing taxes AND INCREASING SPENDING
where am i advocating for increased spending?
They attribute any rise in revenues (and they are incredibly difficult to find) to tax cuts and when you mention the associated increase in spending THAT ALWAYS ACCOMPANIES those cuts they want to change the subject to the weather.
i don't deny there is an effect, but tax receipts are tied to GDP growth, especially non-public growth
to increase tax receipts, we need to make a bigger pie. the key is doing this in the private sector. if we do that while shrinking the public sector, we accomplish a double boom
Nice try though, but the myth if supply side economics has been so thoroughly debunked that no one butthe right insists on the validity of the premise any longer....
and yet we see the opposite side fail (greece and much of europe) while "supply siders" have been seen to win out in places like iceland, latvia, and peurto rico Krugman was wrong about Latvia
"Krugman famously said back in December 2008 that Latvia is the new Argentina, it will inevitably go bankrupt, and now he has difficulty apparently admitting he was wrong and so he tries to seek some problems in how Latvia is recovering from the economic crisis," Latvian leader Valdis Dombrovskis told CNBC in an interview at the EU summit in Brussels.
Latvia's government undertook a heavy dose of austerity after a credit boom led to an economic crash in 2008. The government undertook the biggest fiscal adjustment drive of any country in the European Union and gross domestic product (GDP) plunged 24 percent in 2009.
This commitment to fiscal prudence, and Latvia's subsequent growth of 5.5 percent in 2011 and 4.5 percent in 2012, has led the country to be feted by proponents of austerity, such as German Chancellor Angela Merkel.
and yes, i read the article, and yes, i believe that our population needs some the emigration of certain unskilled/uneducated workers
