Obama Must Choose a New Secretary of the Treasury

by Maarten de Kadt,                                       

Danny Glover through MoveOn has started a petition campaign asking the president to nominate Paul Krugman for Treasury Secretary. As of Monday morning Glover claims to have 190,000 signatures. Now I doubt that Paul Krugman will actually be the next Treasury Secretary of the United States. But that doesn't matter as the petition campaign is a strong argument to the President that many people think austerity and budget balancing to be wrong and spending on things like infrastructure reconstruction is the right way to reduce the terrible unemployment situation in the United States of close to 15% of the labor force. CRDC should join in.
