Looking for an explanation for the Great Recession?

Austrian Economists can explain this recession in the same way that all the other ones are explained:

This is why it's so painful when government stops inflating. But if government doesn't stop inflating, you have Turkey, or Zimbabwe, or Germany in the 30's. What is our government doing right now? Inflating. But inflating doesn't fix anything -- it just postpones the pain. The only fix is if people save money to fund the business expansion. What is Krugman (the moron) telling us that we need to do? Spend, spend, spend, don't save! Except for the fact that every REAL economist will tell you that that's stupid, everyone believes Krugman because back before his brain failed, he got a Nobel Prize.
