"He already knew everything, without actually knowing anything."


Who the hell is this Paul Krugman?
I know well who he is supposed to be: a Nobel prize winning economist, a professor at Princeton, and multi-purpose talking head whose principal media platform is a column in the New York Times, the fish wrap of choice. And we know his kind: the ones who call out from their Ivory towers to us, the great unwashed. But seriously, for a supposedly deep thinking intellectual, Krugman just churns out nothing but boiler plate bien pensant waffle, week after week. There's no thinking involved. It’s more like a stimulus response: add Sarah Palin here and watch the head spin. Add Tea Party here for instant spittle- flecked rant. -- Diogenes' Middle Finger: American Asshat: Paul Krugman

Your Say

I'm surprised one spends time reading him.He has nothing new to say.
It's like looking for one bar of original music. Not going to happen.

Creative people will take those notes and work them to please the ear.
Krugmen picks one note to beat dully on a rock like Gollum bashing his head.
