I disagree with Krugman

In separate interviews at All Things Considered, Krugman and I disagree on the stimulus plan. The website story at NPR.org suggests it's a disagreement over spending vs. tax cuts. In the actual interview, I agreed with Krugman that tax rebates are unlikely to help, suggested that cuts in tax rates are better than rebates, and pushed the theme that it might be the case that nothing will help. I also argued that more infrastructure isn't always productive.
