I have only one beef with Paul Krugman and that was his principled, though insanely misguided, support for John Edwards(!) in the primaries (because of his health care plan and populist platform).
Otherwise, Krugman rules. I don’t know anything about this economic theory, but his writing on economics is always accessible and clarifying and he has been a beacon throughout this crisis period. He was also, inarguably, the most consistent and convincing New York Times columnist throughout the Bush presidency. I am sure this is well deserved.
Congratulations to Paul Krugman!
