    A headline only a Krugman could love

    A headline only a Krugman could love

    There is no evidence he wrote this headline, but he could have:


    Donations tax deductible
    to the full extent allowed by law.

    How dare they sell stuff that people want at a price they are willing to pay?

    When I look at Obama and Krugman … nowadays if you tell me someone won a Nobel … if it isn’t in the hard sciences … it counts against their reputation.

      Fun fact, the “Nobel Prize in Economics” isn’t even a real Nobel Prize, it was established some 70 years after Alfred Nobel’s will created the Nobel Prizes. Another fun fact, prize is a really weird looking word when you think about it.

    Fake but accurate.

    Never let a crisis go to waste.

    Unless it is capitalism that succeeds. Then make it “crazy people” “panicking” about a hyped up hurricane.

    Yeah, that’s the ticket.

    Krugman could have written that headline because he is proof that one can win a Nobel prize in economics without ever reading or becoming familiar with Frederic Bastiat’s broken window story. Of course, one wouldn’t need to read Bastiat since the story is also told in Hazlitt’s Economics in One Lesson.
