Weak Dollar Helps Whom?

Paul Krugman tells us,

“a fall in the dollar . . . wouldn’t be a terrible thing and might actually help the economy.”

By help, he means help U.S. workers work longer hours for less buying power, to better compete with third-world workers.

With help like this, who needs enemies?

Krugman does make the point, “the unemployed don’t hire lobbyists,” the root of the government’s inaction to correct the long-term unemployment situation.

The American people do need to hire public-interest lobbyists—on each and every one of the issues that wealth hires lobbyists for.
