With your tattoos and topknots, who do you think you are?

Ezra Klein and Paul Krugman are having a friendly argument about hipster topknots and tattoos (full disclosure: I played an indirect role in the prehistory of this debate).

KRUGMAN: Of course Greece had a plan for a new currency (GREK, EUR, EURUSD)

Well, duh. Greece had a plan to introduce a new currency if it got forced from the euro, and Nobel Laureate and New York Times columnist Paul Krugman can't believe people are shocked (shocked!) to find this out. "I mean, really: it would have been shocking if there weren't contingency plans," Krugman writes. Show More Summary

Paul Krugman Decimates Jeb Bush's Medicare Delusion

Bush lives completely inside the conservative information bubble. Jeb Bush's declaration that he wants to "figure out a way to phase out" Medicare last week—and his campaign's immediate lame back-pedaling— came as no big surprise to Paul Krugman. Show More Summary

Krugman on Greece

(July 27, 2015 01:58 AM, by David Henderson) Athens, we have a problem. I missed seeing Paul Krugman on Fareed Zakaria's show on CNN on July 19. The transcript is worth looking at, not because it's that informative about Greece but because it's informative about how--and how carefully--Krugman... (0 COMMENTS)

Ireland and Greece, again

'The Old Man and the CPI'

Paul Krugman: The Old Man and the CPI: I don’t watch financial news, but CNBC was on in the gym, so I was treated to a long ad from Ron Paul, who wants you to buy his video explaining the...

Paul Krugman on the minimum wage

(July 23, 2015 09:12 AM, by Scott Sumner) Paul Krugman recently had this to say on the minimum wage: Until the Card-Krueger study, most economists, myself included, assumed that raising the minimum wage would have a clear negative effect on employment. But they found, if anything, a positive... (0 COMMENTS)

The Big Lesson of the Eurozone Crisis

Paul Krugman notes that Eurozone crisis is a vindication of that optimum currency area (OCA) theory. I agree but would note the crisis also sheds light on the specialization versus endogeneity debate surrounding the OCA criteria. Interestingly, Krugman himself wrote some of the literature in this debate back in the early-to-mid 1990s. Show More Summary

What makes the Very Serious People so very serious?

I mean that question quite um…seriously. Paul Krugman, who I believe originated the concept, recently defined it as follows: “…someone distinguished by his faith in received orthodoxy no matter the evidence.”  I would rather have something less normative and also more specific. I think of it this way: the People are Very Serious if they […]

Government brings out the worst in us

(July 19, 2015 09:03 AM, by Scott Sumner) Paul Krugman doesn't understand why people think government is bad: Why, exactly, are these public functions unquestioned bywords for "something bad"?
