From the Left....Cleaning Up the Economy | Common Dreams

Well...my "News Service" is off to a rather shaky start.  I'm having difficulty trying to place more than one Link into a Post.  But we'll figure it out as we go along.  

The subject line...From the Left...will give you a hint (especially if you are on the Right), that the article below comes from a Liberal website...Common Dreams...and is going to set forth the view for "Cleaning Up the Economy"by Paul Krugman, a very liberal economist.  I'll do some research and try to find articles from the Right on doing the same thing, and link them into this same post or  a future one.

As you might expect, I agree with most of what Mr. Krugman says in this article.  Unless the economy goes in the tank, he says "the next four years will be much better than the past four years (economically)".  I would add the caveat that his statement is based on the premise that President Obama will still be in office.  (I believe the Romney/Ryan economic plan would be a disaster for the middle class and those of us in the 99% group!)

Krugman acknowledges that the recovery from the "Great Recession" has remained sluggish, but sees signs of improvement  in the housing market and business investments since late 2009.  I hope he is right.  All prior recessions have been lead by a recovering housing market.

So...please read the article by clicking on the link below, and send me all of your comments.
