Krugman on Katrina, Trump, and the Lessons of Recent History

The things that Krugman says seem pretty obvious, but very few people seem to be saying them.

What we should have learned from Katrina, in other words, was that political poseurs with nothing much to offer besides bluster can nonetheless fool many people into believing that they’re strong leaders. And that’s a lesson we’re learning all over again as the 2016 presidential race unfolds.

You probably think I’m talking about Donald Trump, and I am. But he’s not the only one.
