    Remember all that about never wasting a good crisis? Well, we’ve managed to do just that: squander it. Me today.

    @chakrabortty Your lament about austerity in a slump would have more resonance if you had bemoaned govt spending during the boom

    @PolvolterDnkymn So what did I say? Give me examples.

    @chakrabortty Exactly. You said — “the principal argument of the Keynesians that you don’t cut public spending amid a slump is as true now”

    @chakrabortty Have you previously advocated that govt reduce its spending during the boom years?

    @PolvolterDnkymn What is my position? Do enlighten me.

    @chakrabortty As far as I can see, it is indistinguishable from Vivian Nicholson’s am I right or amirite?

    @PolvolterDnkymn So you have no evidence. Surprise! I shall now proceed to ignore you.

    @chakrabortty Of course you will ignore me. Because you have no rebuttal. If you had one you would have given it
