Professor Paul Krugman wins economics Nobel

I read Paul Krugman's columns regularly in the New York Times (thank goodness that nasty pay wall is history!) so I'm perfectly thrilled to learn this morning that he's earned the 2008 Nobel Memorial Prize in Economic Sciences. His Conscience of a Liberal, the blog and the book, are both solid. When I posted this piece on his The Great Unraveling I'd not read the thing yet have since. Wonderful! He warned us things were about to get even worse and I'd like a big "told you so" directed toward DC and Wall Street. It is pleasing to see a real treasure recognized by the world community. Wouldn't he be a solid Treasury Secretary for the Obama-Biden administration! John Gunn
