Economic justice has some benefits, even for those just below the top.
The news that the deficit is falling should spur Congress to finally do something about unemployment already. But it won't!
The deficit continues to fall, showing that we could solve our unemployment crisis. If Congress wanted to, that is.
The plan that would actually address the main fiscal problem facing the country -- mass unemployment -- is the one that will receive the least attention inside the Beltway.
The much ballyhooed debate between Paul Krugman and Joe Scarborough only proved that Krugman's position is not so marginal, after all.
Congressional Progressives are set to roll out a new plan today that would prioritize job creation in order to fix the deficit in a balanced way. Needless to say, it stands no chance whatsoever.
