The Economy Doesn't Need an Alien Invasion Either

We springboard from Nobel Laureate economist Paul Krugman's wrong idea about babysitting the economy to an even stranger idea: the threat of an alien invasion would be good for a depressed economy. Krugman thinks its better for people to stop saving money to pay off their debts and squeeze even more money toward building bunkers for a fake threat that aliens would take over.

We listen to Krugman himself in his own words. You decide if his alien solution really makes sense.
