Social Security: Ruth Marcus Turns the Washington Post Into the National Review

Ruth Marcus accuses Paul Krugman of being either dumb or dishonest. Over at EconoSpeak, I suggest that she is both dumb and dishonest by simply turning the microphone over to Brad DeLong and Mark Thoma.

Update: Greg Mankiw links the pathetic op-ed from Ruth Marcus without one critical comment. Ahem! Paul Krugman offers his thoughts.

Update II: While it is true that Greg Mankiw made no specific comment on the awful op-ed from Ruth Marcus, he did provide a little Kruman bashing last Friday. Read all that Brad and Mark have had to say on this and decide for yourself whether Greg’s bashing of Paul was fair or not.
