Volume 3 Issue 18: Two-Cent Economics

Paul Krugman

I have never been a big fan of Paul Krugman, but to dismiss his intelligence and creativity would be a fatal error. Nonetheless, cutting to the chase, Krugman is a Nobel Laureate for Economics and this usually means that he contributed something revolutionary to the field, and in this case, international trade theory.

Below are the links of a recent article in the New York Magazine that I thought would give a pretty insightful picture on the life of one of today's more creative thinkers, all SEVEN pages in total.

Page 1: Paul Krugman’s lonely crusade
Page 2: Why he is comfortable with his solitude
Page 3: How he relishes in being right
Page 4: The source of his academic reputation
Page 5: Why he has always been alert to the possibility of the extreme
Page 6: Next: What has always troubled him about Obama
Page 7: Next: His own political Eden
