Krugman : 8 items
I generally hate personal hit pieces against people, but enjoy karmetic revenge if:
- (a) are actually exposing the truth (instead of just twisting it)
- (b) they shred bad arguments/points (correct the record) and back it up, instead of just personal attacks
- (c) they are against sacred cows... like Krugman (or Gore or Moore, etc) that the rest of the media considers off limits.
Friedrich Hayek won the Nobel Prize as well, for showing the dispersed knowledge problem (proving why command economies: e.g. those with central controls including price/wage controls, statistically underperform more free/dispersed economies). Paul got his for a microeconomic proof of showing how some economies are more specialized than others, and for being liberal enough... right before Obama got his Nobel Prize for most creative use of drones. But since working for the NYT, Paul often contradicts basic economic theories, and replacing them with Democrat Talking Points instead.
