    Nobel Prize-winning economist Paul Krugman says tax cuts would do little to help the economy. Infrastructure investments are the way out of our situation.

    You mean it doesn't? I thought it meant other economist in the field from all around the world acknowledged the expertise and influence the person contributed on the subject. I believe this should give him some credibility over a person who took politics in school and was given a mic or a keyboard which made them an expert in all subjects.

    You mean "Former Enron Adviser" Paul Krugman.

    Didn't Arafat win a Nobel Prize ?

    Well, a broken clock is still right twice a day.

    If I get a tax cut the money will not help the economy. And the rest of you?

    Tax policy is more of a long-term solution, anyway. Immediate relief must use other means.

    Funny... His prize was for the negotiations at Oslo which theoretically went a long way toward peace. What backfired was the newly formed democracy elected Hamas. That wasn't his fault, he didn't what America wanted and brought them democracy.

    I strongly believe some people/nations should be allowed to vote. Voting in Hamas is a good example of why I say that.
