Paul Krugman Argues That Cruz Is Not Any Saner Than Donald Trump

This column by Krugman provides the perfect prelude to the post that follows by David Brooks.  Krugman describes the economic policies of Ted Cruz and Paul Ryan as far removed from the center of modern economic thought.  Cruz wants to revert to the gold standard and Ryan clings to economic ideas that have dominated Republican ideology since Reagan. 

Krugman will be surprised by the op-ed by Brooks which argues that the Reagan paradigm no longer works and that conservatism, and the Republican Party, need a new paradigm.
