Nouriel Roubini y la los presupuestos

Bueno, vaya rebote que ha pillado Roubini con los presupuestos de Bush. Esos que me parecen cuestionables, los mismos:

The dishonesty of the administration about budget deficits has reached levels unheard of. These folks have absolutely no shame. Bush presented today a budget that claims that he will achieve his goal of reducing the deficit by half by 2008 (from a false 2004 baseline of $521 billion rather than the actual 2004 deficit of $412b) and will achieve a deficit of "only" $233b by 2009. Even better news, the administration claims today: the "halving" of the deficit will be reached by 2008, a year earlier than original 2009 target for it.(...)

Es larguito, pero vale la pena leerlo. Cuando digo que Bush es un personaje cuanto menos cuestionable, es por algo...
