Krugman Scolds Jon Stewart for Trillion Dollar Coin Coverage

By Kaye Foley | ABC OTUS News

In a "This Week" web exclusive, New York Times columnist and Nobel Prize-winning economist Paul Krugman sounded off on Comedy Central host Jon Stewart's dismissive take on minting a platinum trillion dollar coin as a debt ceiling quick fix.

"It is a funny thing. But you want to be funny from a point of view of understanding what the issues are. There's a reason we've gotten to this place," Krugman said of Stewart's "Daily Show" coverage of the platinum coin issue, which Krugman criticized as "intellectual laziness" in a recent blog post. "Obviously neither he nor his staff did even five minutes of looking at the financial blogs. Lots of people think it's a bad idea. Lots of people think it's a good idea. But it's not just, 'Oh, those idiots.'

"Part of the point about Stewart…is that he's funny, but that the show is actually better informed than most of our public discussion. The idea is that the show should be like an especially good episode of the roundtable on 'This Week', but in the form of jokes. But when he just turns it into dumb, "I don't know nothing, but those people look dumb to me," he's ruining his own brand."

74235 This was the most Mentally disturbed thought I've heard yet for a solution to the debt. You already have solutions, yet you don't use any of them. Supposed to build bots that we can control from home and get paid to terra-form the Earth from certain disasters. These bots must run from a rechargeable grid and have repair bots, hell we can even make this move into space and start terraforming our solar system from other certain disasters, the same way our extraterrestrial ancestors have been doing for us for so long! By doing so we can mine deep within earth and deep into space. So quit wasting our money destroying priceless shit in your pointless wars and start doing something that doesn't destroy human history, the way the devil wants you to!
