Krugman on Obama's Infrastructure Plans
Krugman, who won the 2008 Nobel Prize for economics, explains why he believes America is "starved for infrastructure investment" and why initiatives like computerizing health care and building new classrooms will help keep the U.S. out of depression. He also explains why he believes Obama should spend even more money stimulating the economy than President Franklin Delano Roosevelt did in the wake of the Great Depression.
This interview was part of "The Big Fix," a report that appeared on "Blueprint America," a year-long, PBS-wide series focusing on the nation's infrastructure.
