I pull up one of my tweets from last year…
I just want Rob Ford to create positive publicity for once.— Trinh Theresa Do (@TTDDOO) May 14, 2012
Is that so hard, though? I’ve been asking for this for over a year!
I remember in my second- or third-year global politics class, defending Keynesian economics against these austerity measures imposed by/forced upon EU governments. I was like, the answer to boosting the global economy is so simple—just look to Keynes, just look to how America got out of the Great Depression (well, shy of that whole WWII thing). And everyone was like, No, the Keynesian model won’t work in today’s world. Neoliberalism changed all that. Fiscal policy emphasizes deficit-cutting rather than government-spending. Blah, blah, blah.
And then the Excel error.
I’m just saying. And I don’t even know anything about economics.
