But he used the weasel word: "mostly". See? You can't lay a glove on the guy. :)
Krugman's response to you: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=riPTAmgnk9c
Seriously, if people like him get a Nobel Prize, I do not see any motivation.
Yeah, it should really be a pejorative to say "so and so has a Nobel Prize" now that Krugman and Obama each have one.
"But what he somehow misses is that the notion that traditional families and religion are essential to social order is a theory, not a fact"I sure wish he would apply this same line of thinking to all the things he believes in that fall into this same category. I would put his constant harping on income inequality leading to a break down in society at the top of the list.
"Never split 10s" in blackjack is mostly a myth too I suppose.
I used to think this guy was evil. Turns out he's just dumb. Who knew?
Brazil is in good shape. Argentina is in good shape. People have cops as a public good and don't need to own guns. People aren't becoming more dependent on government. The laughs never stop with "create a housing bubble" Krugman, do they?
