And where, again, did you say you got your Ph.D. in economics, the Chicago School or the London School of Economics? Why do liberal hacks like you pretend to know anything whatsoever about the economy when you have no background in, say, economics? Being an op-ed columnist simply means someone is employing you to write opinions. There is no requirement that your opinions be grounded in fact or sound theory. A disclaimer to that effect would be helpful.
Moderator’s Note: Mr. Krugman received his B.A. from Yale University in 1974 and his Ph.D. from MIT in 1977. He has taught at Yale, MIT and Stanford. At MIT he became the Ford International Professor of Economics. For more, click here.
I’d trust Krugman with about anything. He’s my kind of liberal hack.
isn’t he though? he’s a very good writer about economics :)
If Krugman can refrain from beginning every column of his with “I told you so,” he’s a better person than I am.
O I can barely peek through my fingers when he’s on Maddow. Talk Me Down? Nope, still up on this ledge.
He’s right, always right, but that’s little consolation
Snag, I think he should insist that his column at the Times be retitled “I Told You So”
Maybe Krugman needs a house designed….
never hurts to ask, RM. maybe he’s making money in this loss. y’ never know…
Geeeeze… that poor liberal hack, who knows nothing about the economy, got a Nobel Prize!
that is pretty awesome :)
also, i hope that nouriel roubini gets some credit in the future. poor guy deserves some recognition too :-D
