    who fell into the austerity meme by making exactly the same statements as Murray's.

    Unless you're able to parse out highly complex Keynesian economics in public discourse, it makes no sense to reinforce the austerity meme, even if you don't intend to.

    Don't mention deficits and debts to people who don't understand Keynesian economics, because you're just making things worse when you do.

    People like to equate the nation's finances to a household budget, and you can't disabuse them of it easily. That's why Murray shouldn't emphasize the problems with the household budget.

    There are two kinds of people in this world. The kind who divide the world into two kinds of people, and the kind who don't.
