"...We’ve also had enough of this dumbed-down conservatism. We need to stop being simplistic, we need to trust the intelligence of the American people and we need to stop insulting the intelligence of the voters.”

The thing is, he really has merit....but he merit is in international trade theory, not macroeconomics. Instead of holding onto the hard earned credibility he had, he pissed it away to build a following by dogmatically pontificating on a subject he is clearly out of his league in (and has shown that over and over and over and over and over).

It's sad, but i understand why he is that way.

Curious as to what your understanding of this is...ego?

Part ego, sure. Mostly, it is his livelihood and spotlight. He has built an entire career on advocating central planning and authority. His work on trade theories was work well done and is now the standard theories taught in schools on international trade. But he just keeps looking to stay relevant, and what better way than to promote failed Keynesian policies?

He has a NYT blog spot, is asked to be debated and for his opinion on news outlets the world over and maintains a presence in academia. All fine and dandy.

But his deliberate obsession with changing facts and history to favor his centrall control mind frame, really puts him on the edge of credible. He would do himself a favor to be a bit more humble and objective, than a loud roar of dogmatic jargon regarding macrecon.

just reading his articles is PAINFUL.

Someitmes I wonder if he actually believes the bullshit he tries to push, or if he just does it because it's his "character" as a liberal nobel prize winning economist, he gets away with it adn most people really truly aren't very economically adept.

:dunno:

yep, anyone who thinks different than you must be lying or stupid -- because you're never wrong.

In macroeconomics, tell me where Krugman has been correct in his stimulus assertions.
