"The gloating is easy to understand. After all, nominal wage rigidity is the driving assumption of the Keynesian model. Unemployment is just a labor surplus; since wages are the price of labor, the fundamental cause of unemployment has to be excessive wages. .... What's hard to understand, though, is Keynesian neglect of -- if not outright hostility to -- the logical implication of their argument: Wages must fall!" (12/15/11)
