What's the point in being Keynesian if it's politically impossible to implement Keynesian policies the way they were intended, i.e., spend big now and save during a boom, spend on shovel ready programs (but they don't exist)?
And who supported the housing bubble that's responsible for our current economic bullshit? Your Keynesian-In-Chief: Krugman.
since i'm um, not a keynesian, I can't really answer your questions. but i'm pretty certain there's space between paul krugman and ron paul on monetary policy, not to mention keynesianism in general (there's a lot more to keynes than monetary policy)
