    From what I read, it sounds deserved.
    I knew that Krugman was a working economist at Princeton, but I thought his job was mostly writing for the NYTimes.
    His working theories on trade subsidies actually make sense. And that's what he won for.
    Krugman is the favorite whipping boy of conservatives, but he's been mostly right on the economic crisis.

    He's been right on top of what went wrong, and why, chapter and verse.

    I don't want him doing my crystal-ball gazing/future planning, but as an analyst, he's the nuts.

    Much as I respect his intellect on economic subjects (albeit, I disagree with parts of it), so did Ragu.

    Actually, Jay and Breaker of Leopold and Loeb are dead-on nails here. Krugman has been out in front of this for a while. And as an economist, he's one of the best out there, for what Jay pointed out and for his ability to break down complex economic issues into digestible bites, among many other reasons.

    Don't want the guy running the country. But he sure as hell knows how to do this.
