Another Challenge for Krugman

Bob Murphy is not the only economist putting out a challenge to Paul Krugman.

Adam Ozimek, of Modeled Behavior, would like to see Krugman take on the economist, known as, Dr Chest.

Ozimek writes that  Lauren Cohen is an economics professor at the Harvard Business School and a champion powerlifter and strongman. He is among the top 20 powerlifters in the world in his weight class, and he was runner-up two years in a row for the best paper in the Journal of Finance. He can bench press 500 pounds and squat-lift 700 pounds.

In the pic above, Cohen is flipping an 800 pound tire. "Let’s see Krugman do that," writes Ozimek.

Calls to Murphy to see if he is willing to take on Dr. Chest, after he finishes with Krugman, were not immediately returned by Murphy.

UPDATE: Here's Judge Napolitano on the Murphy-Krugman debate:
