I don't know Professor Krugman, but my understanding of his argument is that at the macro level for budgeting and planning it's a matter of the efficient allocation of resources to achieve the most positive outcomes. I think the setting of what are positive outcomes is where the moral philosophy and normative questions come in.


Ted Cruz's presidential campaign kickoff at a "Christian" university was a calculated affront to genuine (if idealized) Christian values that are, yes indeed, the bedrock of USA.

Liberty is to Christian as AIPAC is to Judaism.

The interesting thing about this one is it blows some cover on U.S. intelligence channels. This tends to indicate that Obama is about to put some serious chips on the board, and is not just messing around. "White House Chief of Staff Denis McDonough said 'an occupation that has lasted for almost 50 years must end.'" If they are actually serious and follow through with this, it could mean a sea change.
