Galbraith: The danger posed by the deficit ‘is zero’

James Galbraith apparently doesn’t want Democrats to become a bunch of Eisenhower Republicans.  Galbraith: “It says that we should be focusing on real problems and not fake ones. We have serious problems. Unemployment is at 10 percent. if we got busy and worked out things for the unemployed to do, we’d be much better off. And we can certainly afford it. We have an impending energy crisis and a climate crisis. We could spend a generation fixing those problems in a way that would rebuild our country, too. On the tax side, what you want to do is reverse the burden on working people.”
