Oops. I’m about to make history and agree with Paul Krugman on the need for a better informed electorate, a point he makes in the piece you can find here. I agree that we need a more informed electorate but we have to go beyond just informing the electorate on economic issues. The electorate has to learn how to vote on economic issues. It has to learn how best to use the political mechanism for increasing our access to capital, an access to which commercial and political elites create a substantial bottleneck.
