This blog is still alive, just in semi-hibernation. When I want to write something longer than a tweet about something other than math or sci-fi, here is where I'll write it.
Bad advice - oh, I don't know. Krugman has had to endure a lot of sneering and sniping. He's entitled to do a bit of pay back but I think he's too much a gentleman to do so.
Yay Paul. He is a gentleman indeed. Did you hear him today- he was genuinely surprised and quite humble.
I would think that he could come back to work totally shit-faced and there's no way they could fire him. "Excuse me, Mr. Krugman, Nobel Prize winner, but I need to talk to you in my office...." Yeah, right.
Yeah, you can't fire a Nobel laureate on the day he gets the award, even if he grabs his crotch and screams "You gotta Pulitzer? Well, pull on THIS!"
I don't know if there's enough tequila in midtown for the shy and unassuming Mr. Krugman to wag his bone at his peers. But I love the image.
I'm very happy for Mr. Krugman, although like Jess, I don't see him taking your advice.
If Hollywood ever decides to delve into the Economics thriller niche, George Clooney could totally play Mr. Krugman.
