We pay little attention to the New York Times’ opinion columnists because they’re so repetitively tedious and tediously repetitive, tendentiously so…and so and so, too. We do know that Paul Krugman is reviled throughout the conservative commentariat because his biases overwhelm his analysis. He used to be a serious economist, yadda, yadda, yadda…
Or should we write jåddä, jåddä, jåddä?
Anyway, we take note of the Royal Swedish Academy of Sciences awarding Krugman the Nobel Prize in order to comment on two things:
The funny results of the following Google search: Krugman and “a serious economist.”
And, when Der Spiegel wanted a serious analysis of the current financial crisis and its impact on the American economy, it turned to Noam Chomsky:
SPIEGEL: So for you, Republicans and Democrats represent just slight variations of the same political platform?
Chomsky: Of course there are differences, but they are not fundamental. Nobody should have any illusions. The United States has essentially a one-party system and the ruling party is the business party.
Give that man a Nobel Prize!
