My parents used to own a small house with a large backyard, in which my mother cultivated a beautiful garden. At some point, however — I don’t remember why — my father looked at the official deed defining their property, and received a shock. [Read More]
Commentary: Triumph of the wrong Commentary: Triumph of the wrong

The race is not to the swift, nor the battle to the strong, neither yet bread to the wise, nor yet midterms to men of understanding. Or as I put it on the eve of another Republican Party sweep, politics determines who has the power, not who has the truth. [Read More]

19 weeks ago - - PAUL KRUGMAN
Amazon.com, the giant online retailer, has too much power, and it uses that power in ways that hurt America. OK, I know that was kind of abrupt. But I wanted to get the central point out there right away, because discussions of Amazon tend, all too often, to get lost in side issues. [Read More]

Commentary: Revenge of the unforgiven Commentary: Revenge of the unforgiven
20 weeks ago - - PAUL KRUGMAN
