Gee, it seems that Paul Krugman has found a new word to describe people who might actually believe that the Law of Marginal Utility applies to money and to economics in general: Zombie. In a recent blog post, he claims to be able to debunk the "myth" of "soaring federal employment," and, thus, label anyone who disagrees a "zombie."
Krugman's "proof" is the graph below, which does show that in Census years, there are temporary spikes in government employment. However, we still can see a significant growth (even without the Census workers) in federal employment since Obama took office.
So, who is the zombie? Could it be the guy who believes that an addition of government to be paid by everyone else is an economic "stimulus"? Oh, I forgot. "Sophisticated" economists have repealed the Law of Scarcity and the Law of Opportunity Cost.
