Paul Krugman on unions

I think of Paul Krugman as a keen observer of U.S. economics and politics. He has never been especially hostile to labor, yet he is a Princeton professor, and NYT columnist, who is far removed from the world of union activists. When he says that recent GOP assaults on organized labor may well backfire, it gives me real hope for this country.

Good Post. Over at my place, in the section "What Every American Needs to Know" there is a video by Paul Krugman on the New Deal that ties in well with this one.

Thanks, Motivated. I hadn't watched that P.K. clip over at your place. It's an excellent piece, I especially liked his point about the union-busting in the U.S. being much more severe than in other developed countries (like Canada).
