Why Ezra Klein is wrong, and Paul Krugman is right
Posted by Kathleen Geier
Readers, this weekend, I'm blogging at the Washington Monthly. Among my posts there today is this one, in which I briefly make the case as to why economic inequality as, in President Obama's words, "the defining issue of our time." Ezra Klein has been arguing that economic inequality isn't all that important. Paul Krugman begs to differ, and so do I. Check it out. And while you're at it, have a look at Brad DeLong's, Dean Baker's, Jared Bernstein's, and Steve Randy Waldman's responses as well.
