Asymmetry As a Sign of Bias: Paul Krugman Edition

Chris Fawson of Utah State got me noticing asymmetrical thinking 6 years ago.

Now Cafe Hayek has caught Paul Krugman deep in it: Krugman asserts drastic results from the planned budget cut of 6% of GDP in the UK, and meagre results to the 6% budget increase called “the stimulus” in the US.

You can only have it both ways if you’re appealing to people who don’t check the numbers.
