Update on Murphy's Challenge to Paul Krugman

Murphy writes:
* Zerohedge picked up the story over the weekend.

* Robert Wenzel just tipped me off that John Carney at CNBC ran this article. I now have my favorite news line ever: “Krugman did not immediately respond to an email requesting comment on the challenge.”

* The pledge total is now just shy of $29,000. If you haven’t contributed yet, I encourage you to do so. This is your Woodstock, but with bathrooms.

* A clarification to the press treatment: Strictly speaking, this isn’t a “$100,000 debate challenge” to Krugman. It’s whatever amount of money gets pledged. My idea is that the donations just keep piling in over the months, until he has no choice to debate me. That number may be $250,000; who knows.
And don't forget, you can meet Bob Murphy in person, along with yours truly, on Friday in Boston. Click here for details.
