imho best buy will become another radio shack. 80% of sales not during the holidays will be for cell phones like radio shack and best buy will keep new release video/pc games and basic accessories for pcs and consoles. maybe keep the car stereos too. i can't believe the dumb farks who trust best buy to put in car systems.

Please, in detail, show which European countries actually cut spending (the liberal definition of austerity) and not simply continue spending growth while raising taxes (what Krugman calls austerity hoping his sheep go with the first definition).

This is the FIRST year Britain will decrease spending, and next year it will grow again.  Spending is up in all but 3 countries in Europe.  But since taxes were raised, Krugman can yell austerity and his idiot followers will pretend that austerity is the GOP plan of reducing spending.

Europe has followed the Democrat plan, raise taxes and continue to increase spending.

There is your spending in the UK.  Notice how levels are still well above 2008 values, with a single year (projected) decrease this year, increasing past last year next year.

Stop sounding like a moron yelling austerity.

I'm with you.  I'm on Team Austerity.  We're really sticking it to those libs, aren't we?  I bet that douchebag Paul Krugman is really feeling stupid now.  He thinks he's so great.

Evading the question at the speed of Fark. You're clearly ready for your place in the Obama administration.

Well, here's Greece for starters.

Expenditures down 25%, revenues down rather than up.  So are we allowed to call this austerity under our "liberal" definition?

That said, you have a point.  Most European governments aren't reducing their expenditures.  And most European economies aren't in complete freefall.  Those 3 exceptions you mentioned - I wonder which ones they are...

Two points:

First, you might want to adjust for inflation there, slick.  Real government spending was down in the UK from 2011-12 and is projected by those Treasury figures to fall further.  Sounds like austerity to me.

Second, tax increases are also austerity policies.
