It’s gotta suck when your name is Russ Roberts and you start your new propaganda gig with guest John Taylor, only to have Krugman disembowel Taylor with a quick blog post.

Russ Roberts launches a new propaganda campaign with John Taylor:

Krugman calls out Taylor here:

“Call this another example of how politicization is hurting economics…here we have well-known economists refusing to listen and throwing out misleading studies, which just happen to be convenient politically.”

(I haven’t watched yet*, but I just listened to the Frank interview.  Russ’s idea of a hard number is to say ‘a lot’ and call it mathematical formalism.  Sheesh.)

*Whenever.  Russ gets paid full time to shill for Exxon and oil speculators C&D Koch.  I don’t get wingnut welfare like Russ and Don do.  I try to keep up with their propaganda in my spare minutes.
