Gender-Based Economics?

Here's an interesting post from The Corner.

You know, not that I'm a conservative, but I've always disagreed with Keynes because, well, he was a collectivist, and his nostrums always seemed transparently wrong to me.

I never knew, until this day, that he was gay.

And I don't care.

And I think that this is further proof that, whatever his education and reputation in economics, Paul Krugman is a loon.

Ah, so I'm not alone -- you didn't get the memo either.

The Left always wants to tie its differences with the Right to some sort of argument about bigotry. They can't argue economics; at least, I have yet to meet a Leftist who knows enough about the subject to form a coherent sentence. So, when the discussion becomes economics, they look for a way to ring in one of their patented identity-group Moral High Ground precepts, hoping to disarm the opposition thereby. Then, while we're all blushing and hanging our heads in shame, they pick our pockets.

Krugman went over to the Dark Side quite a while ago. This is only his latest manifestation of lunacy. He might be mentally diseased, or he might simply be evil. Either way, smart people shun him.

The trouble is the left is so focused on issues of sexual orientation, race, gender or whatever the issue of the moment is, that they cannot fathom that someone might not be as focused on the issue. "I didn't know" or "I didn't care" about someone's sexual orientation strikes them as intellectual dishonesty, not a statement of fact. And, conviently for them, this let's them believe that every other thing you say to rebut this assertion or that suffers from the same intellectual dishonesty.

Andrew's right. On the one hand they elevate these identity groups to having more importance than merit or personal character, and on the other hand they accuse their opponents of being obsessed with these things.
