Alien threat would end the slump

okaaaaay ? what?

So, working with the notion that peak debt and peak oil possibly mean peak civilisation — and that there’s no World War II style economic kick coming around the corner — Paul Krugman’s decided that there might just be some logic in staging a fake alien attack on the world. You know, to get the economy going.

And if you thought that was just a non-challant remark, meanwhile — and that he’s just messing with our brains — Krugman’s referred back to his fake alien attack idea at least twice since then on his New York Times blogs.
