  • It just wasn't enough.

  • And you can agree with that, right?

  • Paul?

  • The bill was a lot could've been works.

  • It could easily have been hugely worse, given that the characters involved.

  • But it's ended up that it's it's It's a good first start, but we certainly are gonna need, um, at least a trillion more, probably more than that.

  • And you're right to mention people left behind Paul.

  • I mean, I think this bill absolutely needs some funding set aside for luxury pube trimmers.

  • I mean, there is no invite to the stimulus gala.

  • There were no charm bracelets with little ballet shoes on them.

  • When am I going to get some money for some Ah, home audio gear to finally start my history of Maserati podcast.

  • Some people always want tax cuts.

  • That we really, really need is relief for the people who are necessarily unemployed.

  • That's right.

  • What do you think is the most efficient way to route that relief because people have been talking about different timelines for when they get the checks.

  • What do you think is the best way to do this?

  • The implementation is looking pretty bad because we don't have.

  • We've kind of undermined the capacity of government to do complicated things.

  • And so I would have gone for something that was much simpler and just bypassed most of the usual yet pretty serious situation.

  • Thank you to our guests Teddy Hopper, Eleanor Palmer and Paul Krugman.

  • You can catch his new master class on the fundamentals of burlesque.

  • Paul.
