Wikipedia: Paul Craig Roberts (born April 3, 1939) is an American economist and a columnist for Creators Syndicate. He served as an Assistant Secretary of the Treasury in the Reagan Administration and was noted as a co-founder of Reaganomics. He is a former editor and columnist for the Wall Street Journal, Business Week, and Scripps Howard News Service. He has testified before congressional committees on 30 occasions on issues of economic policy.
Here are his two latest posts, from yesterday and today. Roberts appears to be exceedingly pessimistic (even bitter, that the government he served not only failed us, but is doing so intentionally?). We do well to pay him heed on the one hand, while focusing on our real work, together building a new, decentralized, Earth-and-community centered world, on the other.
