Paul Krugman (born February 28, 1953) is a liberal economist with a reputation for consistently making wrong predictions.[1] He is also the 2008 Nobel Economic Prize winner (Nobel Memorial Prize in Economic Sciences), an American professor at Princeton University, and an op-ed columnist for The New York Times. Krugman was a paid consultant of Enron and vociferous critic of the administration of George W. Bush.[2] In 2008 he was as a member of JournoList, a group of leftist journalists and other liberals involved in a scandal of collusion to attack conservatives by labeling them racist.

Krugman is the author of several books; the best known is The Conscience of a Liberal (October 2007). He currently blogs for the Huffington Post and The New York Times, often advocating socialized health care and massive economic stimulus.

"I think we've learned this when we see Joe Stiglitz writing," Krugman said, referring to the winner of the economics Nobel in 2001. "I haven't noticed him getting an easy time. People just say, 'Sure, he's a great Nobel laureate and he's very smart, but he still doesn't know what he's talking about in this situation.' I'm sure I'll get the same thing." [3]

Krugman wrote in End This Depression Now! (Princeton University, 2013.)

"How bad have things gotten? How did we get stuck in what now can only be called a depression? And, most of all, how do we free ourselves?... Nations rich in resources, talent, and knowledge—all the ingredients for prosperity and a decent standard of living for all—remain in a state of intense pain."

Siegel’s interview of Paul Krugman was "a liberal love fest of junk economics and revisionist political history. As Daniel Patrick Moynihan said, 'You are entitled to your opinion, but you’re not entitled to your own facts.'" Main Page/Previous Conservapedia Breaking News/Archives/October 2007
