What you get in that case is the following table; world trade falls about 50%, a bit less than I said in the original analysis. But the basic story remains the same
Related: We have a health care price problem, but it's really a PRIVATE health care price problem. Medicare and Medicaid hospital prices have essentially not grown at all in real terms over the last two decades. @paulkrugman twitter.com/paulkrugman/st…

True, I wouldn't be totally happy to give up my gold-plated NYT coverage in favor of Medicaid. But given the realities of life for many people: 2/

What does Trump want from China? He won't say. The Chinese are supposed to figure it out and make him happy ... nytimes.com/2018/07/12/us/…
Leaving the insults to his host and the naked racism aside, what kind of trade deal did Trump (and Brexiteers) imagine the US might offer? Our average tariff on manufactured goods is only 2 percent ustr.gov/issue-areas/in… 1/
Much the same was true for the US. For example, at a time of ultra-low interests rates and desperately needed infrastructure, we slashed public investment. Public construction spending as percent of GDP: 2/
I'm not big on "what Keynes said", since Keynesianism is a living body of thought, not worship of the old master. Still, he did call for fiscal austerity in boom times 3/ cas2.umkc.edu/economics/peop…

A very nice paper by two of my favorite macroeconomists columbia.edu/~js3204/papers… But while I agree wholeheartedly with their emphasis on natural experiments, their hope that this can depoliticize macroeconomics seems a bit naive 1/

If a digital currency isn't actually used for any transactions, is it, you know, actually a currency? nytimes.com/2018/07/01/tec…
The EU is making the stakes clear: it's not a run-of-the-mill dispute, it's about whether America abides by the rules.
I suppose we should start trying to get ahead of the next GDP report, which most "nowcasting" estimates say will show good growth -- maybe more than 4. This will lead to a lot of stupid commentary; so let's get this chart out there 1/
Here's the (literally) money chart, where you can see the effects of the 2017 tax cut 2/
This might work: China is a much bigger trading partner for its neighbors than we are. For example, 2 1/2 times as important for South Korea 2/
As always, facts have a well-known anti-Trump bias.Below, revenue as % of GDP, falling off a cliff. Is the administration's top economic official ignorant or lying? Does it matter? 2/

With everything else going on, this is a small peeve. But I wish reporters would stop saying that the U.S. trade deficit has a lot to do with the special role of the dollar. We're not the only country that runs persistent deficits; here's a comparison 1/
