Economist Baker Echoes Paul Krugman: There Is No Fiscal Cliff

Posted on Dec 14, 2012

As President Obama promises to bargain away changes to spending and social programs in exchange for income tax increases in the top two brackets, leading economist Dean Baker criticizes the so-called fiscal cliff threat as a myth.

“This idea that if we do not get a deal by the end of the year we will see the economy collapse and go into recession, that is totally dishonest,” said Baker, the co-director of the Center for Economic and Policy Research. “The basis for this is that we don’t have a deal all year—the fact that you do not have a deal December 31 does not mean that you do not get a deal by December 31, 2013.”
