Overstock CEO Patrick Byrne goes to town on Keynesian Crony Paul Krugman in this brief interview. Byrne blasts Krugman for everything from his “unethical” involvement in the Enron debacle to his present day view that “the market failed so we need more government; or freedom failed so we need more government.” Noting that Krugman may have done “some great work before he went crazy,” he rants against the Fed apologist for his “bitcoin is evil” comments adding that he hopes “Bitcoin can destroy central banking.” Byrne pulls no punches in his attack on Krugman and his “Keynesian magic money tree theories,” as he explains why the so-called ‘economist’ would be against a ‘bounded currency’.
Well worth a few minutes… as Byrne covers everything from Krugman’s craziness, Friedman’s warnings, Russia-style central-planning, and Federal Reserve failures… quite astounding
