Thomas Herndon, a grad student, found a simple Excel spreadsheet error (and some missing data from countries such as Canada and Australia) in the study that has been used by Conservatives around the world such as Paul Ryan to argue for austerity that is, cutting government spending and social services.
The study encouraged conservative governments in other countries to kill government jobs and spending. It didnt work, and in fact, has caused a lot of suffering for many people. In an economic recession, its much better for all if the government spends money rather than pulling back.
So basically, the whole economic theory was based on flaws, and those flaws were discovered by a grad student.

If there's one issue that hasn't been talked about enough in this election, it's the environment.
Yet the difference between the parties is stark: Republicans, bankrolled by polluters like the Koch Brothers, want to cut the EPA and rollback or weaken vital environmental protections like the Clean Air and Clean Water Act, laws that ensure millions of Americans can breath our air and drink our water safely.
Mitt Romney calls the EPA "a tool in the hands of the President to crush the private enterprise system," and has vowed to block needed protections on things like fracking and carbon emissions.
Interviews include Rep. Raul Grijalva (AZ-7); Jason Kowalski, Policy Director at 350.org; David Doniger from the Natural Resources Defense Council and former director of climate change policy at the EPA; and Joe Mendelson, director of global warming policy at the National Wildlife Federation, who share the history, purpose, and success of our environmental laws, and push back on the Republican lie that environmental protections are bad for the economy.
