Party of Pollution

A great editorial in today’s NY Times from Paul Krugman where he slices and dices the Republican analysis that environmental regulations are taking jobs and killing the economy.

“…there are a number of industries inflicting environmental damage that’s worth more than the sum of the wages they pay and the profits they earn — which means, in effect, that they destroy value rather than create it. ”
