  •  I was thinking about that as well (0+ / 0-)

    I mean, they willingly gave their data over to Haldron et al -- if they had KNOWINGLY deceptively manipulated the data or ignored key analyses -- why would they give up the data knowing they would be exposed?

    I'm not sure what to make of the intentions of R&R just yet, but as I mentioned up-thread -- there is an AEI & Heritage (right-wing) connection to Reinhart and Rogoff. And of course corporations and plutocrats fund AEI & Heritage.

    I really don't want to jump into calling this a conspiracy theory, but we've literally had YEARS of MISERABLE austerity inflicted on Europe, and used to justify cuts in the US and totally wash away any hope of stimulus -- mostly because of this Harvard study...

    Deficits don't matter, jobs do.
