Another regressive myth exposed: the skills gap
Krugman as usual brings facts to regressive fiction. They do like their fiction though. In this case, it's the myth that the reason people are unemployed is because they don't have the necessary skills to meet today's job demands. That is, "it's their own fault," the typical regressive response to everything. And what empirical evidence did they use to come up with this faux statistic. A phone interview asking the executives a loaded question about the skills gap, a circular ideological belief that justified itself based on predisposed opinion. That's their notion of 'science.' Read the piece for the facts.
