Congratulations Paul Krugman

The Nobel Prize in Economics has been awarded to Paul Krugman this year. Krugman has become a very outspoken Liberal during the Bush administration, but his academic career has been full of hits, mainly dealing with trade theory. His macroeconomics book was the one I used for my Intro to Macro class. It was well written and nonpartisan.

More info on Krugman here and here is his blog.

Several weeks prior to Mr. Krugman being awarded the Nobel, he appeared on CNBC & the market gurus there seemed to be of the opinion that he didn't know squat. That's what I took from the conversations, anyway.

And, yes, "Congratulations, Mr. Krugman".
