ISTM that Sanders missed an opportunity not making more of Stephanie Kelton. Hopefully, he will not make that mistake with Bill. Randy was also on a list of previous advisers. They could all make mincemeat of Krugman's attacks on Bernie and promotion of Hillary.

I see a lot of attacks on Bernie are based on the math not adding up. He needs to have some economists run through the numbers showing how that is mistaken and those making the claim are either ignorant or disingenuous.

The economic conditions and also the demographics are moving the Overton window left. The left needs to set forth a vision and ow to actualize it in terms of policy, both foreign and domestic. Otherwise, the frame is ceded to the right and the left is chipping away at the edges. That's Bernie's problem to a great degree.

He is not being bold enough in putting out a plan from the left that is based on a new frame of reference grounded in putting people first.

We've got "too much government" from the POV of military and monetary policy and not enough wrt to fiscal policy and legislation and regulation that address economic rent as a free ride.
