Debt, Spending, & Keynesian Foolishness
#84
John L Wrote:Yak, the problem now, is that this 'so called' economist has been gifted with a Nobel Prize, for something or other. Most likely it was an award of more than one person. I try not to keep up with him.

The only problem is that he now thinks he is a world wide authority, and so do other Collectivists, who adhere to all that Keynesian Bullshit.

Krugman's nobel prize in trade theory is good economics.

You guys need to understand a few things about him and economists in general. One, he works for a liberal paper, so its in his own interests to say liberal things and support liberal ideas, even if he doesn't fully agree. Two, he is politically biased just like every other economist that you see on TV, newspapers, radio, ect. The unbiased economist won't appear on TV, because he won't have a definitive opinion on the issues that always seems to be the hot topic on TV. TV needs its guests to be definitive.

Example:

TV host - what effect does illegal immigration have on the economy?
Unbiased economist - Well, we don't really know for sure.

That's bad TV.

TV host - what effect does illegal immigration have on the economy?
Biased economist - It drives down wages for American workers.

Better TV.

One the topics you won't see economists talking about on TV is international trade theory - the field where Krugman won the Nobel Prize. The reason, you ask? Because among economists, liberal and conservative, free trade and international trade theory is pretty much agreed upon.
