Good luck opening that page or gop.com

Here's youtuber that was able to access archive (start at 1:17:00)

Highly anticipated, indeed. I can't get a single link to load. Feeling like the last person who doesn't know who won.

Question: where did Krugman say the attributed quote? Was it a tweet? I can't find the original and I'm curious as to what the context was.

On the face of it, it looks like a terrible failed prediction and I'm glad he's being held accountable for it.

Even if he felt that Trump would have negative long-term effects on the economy, it should have been obvious that a pro-business president would cause markets to rally.

Blogger Dave January 17, 2018 8:54 PM  

From the vid @3 (cannot copy/pasta as nobody can get on the site) this is text for No. 1 (there looks to be a hyperlink that follows the text on the archive)

"1. The New York Times' Paul Krugman claimed on the day of President Trump's historic, landslide victory that the economy would never recover."

Its on Trump's twitter feed.

Mark Steyn was on the John Oakley show today discussing the press conference with the Dr. who examined Trump. Oakley called the press core "the clown posse".

I like it. Someone with meme skillz should step up.

Paul Krugman: The Economic Fallout

By Paul Krugman
Comment
2016-11-09T00:42:44-05:00 12:42 AM ET

It really does now look like President Donald J. Trump, and markets are plunging. When might we expect them to recover?

Frankly, I find it hard to care much, even though this is my specialty. The disaster for America and the world has so many aspects that the economic ramifications are way down my list of things to fear.

Still, I guess people want an answer: If the question is when markets will recover, a first-pass answer is never.

Under any circumstances, putting an irresponsible, ignorant man who takes his advice from all the wrong people in charge of the nation with the world’s most important economy would be very bad news. What makes it especially bad right now, however, is the fundamentally fragile state much of the world is still in, eight years after the great financial crisis.

It’s true that we’ve been adding jobs at a pretty good pace and are quite close to full employment. But we’ve been doing O.K. only thanks to extremely low interest rates. There’s nothing wrong with that per se. But what if something bad happens and the economy needs a boost? The Fed and its counterparts abroad basically have very little room for further rate cuts, and therefore very little ability to respond to adverse events.

Now comes the mother of all adverse effects — and what it brings with it is a regime that will be ignorant of economic policy and hostile to any effort to make it work. Effective fiscal support for the Fed? Not a chance. In fact, you can bet that the Fed will lose its independence, and be bullied by cranks.

So we are very probably looking at a global recession, with no end in sight. I suppose we could get lucky somehow. But on economics, as on everything else, a terrible thing has just happened.

Trump tweeted the link only which crashed the gop.com servers.

@Jo see the vid @3 starting 1:17:00 they're showing the web.archive page

Anonymous Jo January 17, 2018 9:00 PM  

@3 Dave -- thanks for the youtube link.

This Trump guy really is knocking it out of the park. Imagine fighting that many fronts at once, and winning. This is exactly what America needs. Not just the changes, which are important in themselves, but the image. The image of a high performer standing as a role model to what can be accomplished.

For so long we've looked up to cowards and liars, to lazy folks who collected paychecks. No wonder so many people don't strive harder.

A man like Trump. Yes, America has hungered for a man like Trump. God willing, may we all follow his lead and be courageous in the face of sloth and threat.

Also, thanks for the quote.

The most comical thing about this is that the Fake News Award is one Krugman actually earned. His Nobel was given purely for his status as a shameless, amoral SJW.

All you had to know that the prediction would be wrong is that Krugman was the one who made it. The true nature of the leftist is contrarian to such a degree that they become perfect negative indicators.

Blogger tz January 17, 2018 9:42 PM  

My only suprise is that Krugman is so incompetent there is a weekly podcast dedicated to shredding his column or blog posts, and seems a minor player for all that.

Absolutely true. Has he made a correct economic prediction any time in the past 20 years?

Lawdy, Krugman. That guy is a menace.I'm still amazed that he proposed pouring resources into defending against a planetary invasion by (space) aliens. I'll have to go look at the awards, there are so many other possibilities here.

Can you not even link to this shit?

Hell a few months ago I sent you a link to a not popular blog, you linked to the blog post, and I watched as after some folks talked about "vox days" thoughts. Lol it was just your link.

And now you don't even bother to link anything. Come on man.

What kind of a world are we living in when the First Amendment is shredded by a US President who dares to question the accuracy and integrity of journalism? How can our Republic survive such a brazen assault?

Literally shaking right now. (With laugher.)

Yep. All organizations become corrupt over time, and in corrupt organizations the people who serve the interests of the organization are the first to collect the money and the accolades. That describes both the Nobel-ish economics prize and American academia.

Lazarus, thanks for a look at Krugman's nonsense.

So many things in it to boggle the mind--consider just this phrase: " in charge of the nation ".

Wot????? Last time I looked,the president was in no such position; rather he's in charge of the executive branch of the federal government.

I suppose this was just a bit of projection on his part.

Blogger AdognamedOp January 18, 2018 2:27 AM  

The FNA's debut was epic. I look foward to next years ceremonies. The FNM's response was to blurb out soundbites of Flake speaking to an empty Senate chamber.

Krugman is not a ferret. He's a weasel.

> If only the aliens had invaded!

Given the current inanity of the Democratic party, who's to say they didn't? It makes as much sense as any other explanation.

It was pretty brilliant on the part of the God Emperor to make Krugman # 1. I mean, there are worse cases of straight-up made up fake news, but this draws emphasis to how good markets are performing.

If he's a weasel, he's a Least Weasel.
But least weasels are cute, and all weasels actually perform a useful function, killing rats, mice, rabbits and other vermin. Krugman has never done a useful thing in his entire life.

He's not a weasel, he's a shrew.

@8 My favorite part of that Krugman article is where he reasoning sounds exactly the same as my 84 yr old mother's, "What if something bad happens...?" Com-pell-ing.
