The Progressives brought some VERY BAD things to the 20th Century that helped unravel the Republic. The most significant were: the Monster from Jekyll lsland (aka the privately held Federal Reserve Bank), the 16th, 17th, and 18th Amendments. Of these only the 18th Amendment was repealed.However, it was replaced b the neo-temperance movement's War on Drugs in the 1970's. Krugman is a devout Progressive, and a zealous apostle at that.
Money? What money?! ;^)
Atlas shrugs at all levels! A fine proposal but hard to motivate sheople to follow through.
johnm -- The place to start is the repeal of the 16th Amendment and the replacement of the income tax with the Fair Tax. It is through the income tax that Federal government succeeds in doing what was never intended - control individual lives. Repealing the income tax does two things to Treasury's IRS ... 1) curtails their power almost entirely, and 2) shrinks the size of its bureaucracy by 80-90%.

Jeff -- You are correct. The headlines ses the present tense "losing" but it should have used past tense "lost"

I agree with your sentiment but the word is "delusional" (as in deluded). Don't give he bad guys ammo.
In the technology industries, the trend has been NOT to hire experienced personnel, but rather, hire H1B visa holders at lower wages. Many of these visa holders return to their homelands after a few years and start companies using knowledge and experience acquired in the US. In tech, at best most older people can only acquire short term contracts (6-18 months) not full time employment, because of IRS regulations involving income tax withholding and the large supply of cheap H1B labor.
