« Romney's trap | Main | Occupy Wall Street -- yesterday »

Poor Brooks has been pwned so many times by Krugman on economics that his only refuge is now the "wisdom of the common man." It's aggravating that someone allegedly smart person like Brooks can't come to grips with what needs to be done-they seem unable to realize that the US economy is not the same as a household budget. It's akin to the sun orbiting the earth theories: yes it may look that way locally, but on the larger scale of things, that's not the way it is.

In time, we do seem to get things right -- think gender equality, gay rights and civil rights in general -- but oh, how we do take that time.

"We" didn't get things right in those instances you cite. "We" had to be dragged kicking and screaming by "them" who knew what they wanted and insisted on it.
