An no Paul Krugman, the economy is not stalling because of robotics automation, or lack of alien invasions, or absence of housing bubble that you called for in late 2002 and got in 2008. The economy is in jeopardy because you and Obama, and the rest of your sea of useful idiots think they have the right to force and control everyone’s economic decisions.
