    Another answer is that the unemployed don’t have much of a political voice. Profits are sky-high, stocks are up, so things are O.K. for the people who matter, right?...

    ....if the Fed would show the “Rooseveltian resolve” that Ben Bernanke demanded of Japanese officials back when he was an independent economist, we would quickly discover that there’s nothing normal or necessary about mass long-term unemployment....

    So here’s my message to policy makers: Where we are is not O.K. Stop shrugging, and do your jobs.

    Krugman was on a Sunday talking heads. He sounded tired of the economic b.s.
    Might be ready to call for "Madame La Guilliotine."
