And yet Krugman wrote a book back in '03 or thereabouts--name just slipped out of my head, darnit--that predicted a lot of this. (I know as I just looked over that book again a few weeks ago, making it doubly annoying that the name is missing from my memory.) The only issue there was that he expected it all to happen much (years) earlier in the Bush presidency.
