In presidential campaigns, it's still, "the economy, stupid," and both Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton have announced programs that would increase the national debt. Trump concedes that, even though it's the reverse of a traditional Republican promise. That would be a good thing, according to Nobel Prize winner Paul Krugman, who's a columnist for the New York Times.
