And that's neither a economic response nor a open for debate question. More of a debunked supply side theory. Figures.

Krugman writes opinion pieces. He may be a good writer, but he not an economist.

Sports critics are not athletes.

My favorite is Paul Krugman. He knows everything about monetary policies, trade, and taxes.

After spending a few hours listening to him, I'd have to say Douglas Casey. This guy knows his sh%$ and makes perfect sense about near-term scenarios. His explanation of the Pareto Priniciple is perfect.

Krugman is an economist. He has the credentials and publications written by him.

His only credentials are being consistently wrong. I guess in the sense that you do the opposite of what he says, you'll probably end up very rich.

Here's my favourite Krug-nut prediction...

* The growth of the Internet will slow drastically... By 2005 or so, it will become clear that the Internet's impact on the economy has been no greater than the fax machine's.

Not sure if serious.

The Nobel prize, for the last 30 years at least, is something bestowed upon scumbags. Connected illuminati scumbags, but scumbags all the same.
