In a rare sign that sanity (at least pockets of sanity) does still exist in the world, New York Times contributor Paul Krugman has won the Nobel Prize for Economics.
Paul Krugman is one of two political writers that I read pretty religiously (the other is Salon’s Glenn Greenwald, who should be due for a Pulitzer soon). For a long time, he was the only reason I subscribed to New York Times Prime (or whatever they called it then).
It’s nice for once to see someone who has been proven right about war, peace, economics, politics and social trends get rewarded.
. Krugman’s excellent and passionate blog (yes, one can be passionate about economics it turns out) is here.
Rock on Paul- I wish I could take a year to come to Princeton and take your econ seminar.
