  • .@Noahpinion New Keynesians do have enormously-strong roots in Friedman, but Friedman was very clear that all you need to make Say’s Law true in practice is sufficiently fancy skating by the central bank with outside nominal asset supplies—and then call that a “neutral monetary policy”. Very few New Keynesians will still go there with Friedman, after Japan 1991- and N Atlantic 2008-. Instead, New Keynesians (now) go with Keynes: fiscal,monetary,regulatory policies affect aggregate demand, & all have a role Jul 08, 2015

  • .@dsquareddigest 1“but it was growing”—you sound like Tim Geithner back during the 2010 “Recovery Summer”. Greece, at 70% of pre-07 trend GDP last December needed a huge (for it) concessional-loan program then. Greece, at 68% of pre-07 trend GDP now, needs a slightly bigger concessional-loan program. Tsipras and company’s scaring away the confidence fairy has made Greece’s problems slightly worse. ECB, by undershooting Eurozone price target by 5% since 08, has inflicted 10x as much damage as Tsipras. “Greece OK in Dec 14” argument result of elementary confusion between levels and rates of change. cc: @AngelUbide Jul 03, 2015
