Comment: Reports of Paul Krugman's demise are an exaggeration.

(See in situ)


Reports of Paul Krugman's demise are an exaggeration.

He did not file for bankruptcy. Twas a satirical article posted to "Daily Current." The Daily Current does amuse me, but not so much that I hanker after it. Got a lot of laughs & even more traction. Some 200,000 references. Kind of cheapened the value of references in scholarly articles.

If Krugman actually said & did those things, one might conjure that it is truth. But, even his lies do not constitute truth. Years into the future, economics will likely be told as footnotes to mythology.

Along this line of thought, libraries stack shelves with fiction & nonfiction. Biographies are oft fiction. Autobiographies are almost certain to be so. Fiction mostly. Mine is. My work, no matter how true I tried to make it, is mostly stacked together with other fictions.

No, sorry to say... Tis fiction. Few, if any, reports are true when espoused by economists... None penned by Paul Krugman, near as I can tell. Alas, he may say the same about me.
