Ah, the times we live in (or the international business press calls Harper "reckless")

So, here's a headline you don't see too often.

Harper the reckless spender, baffled like Don Quixote in the face of the economic downturn -- all the while ignoring warnings that his policy of hemorrhaging the current account may lead Canada back into the red (warnings courtesy of left-wing think tanks, of course).

While Jack Layton is every bit the economic sage, calling for restraint and prudent economic management to protect jobs.

All this on the pages of Bloomberg business press, no less.
