    You certainly can prove that he is not considered a credible source. You need to understand what "proving a negative" actually means.

    Disproving credibility is proving a negative, since credibility is subjective to begin with.

    Krugman could wear a swastika on his sleeve and you wouldn't accept that as proof of a lack of credibility.

    I still do not understand why you insist being left of center makes him any less credible? In regards to economics, your comparison to Rush and Bill is less laughable than down right ignorant.

    However you slice it, Krugman is a hands down brilliant economist while the others are media figures. It's like comparing a custom Mustang to a Ferrari.
    It is not very unreasonable that the rich should contribute to the public expense, not only in proportion to their revenue, but something more than in that proportion.

    Or comparing Paris Hilton to Einstein to take it to an extreme.

    Well, for the record, I never said that. I said, you believe he's credible because he's left of center.

    Are you ok in the head? I could care less about him being liberal.

    Case in point:

    What you have to do is find a right of center economist with the credentials equal to Krugman to offer a quality counter point. This can be done rather easily, but do not expect me to do your research for you. Besides, you really do not want to know what a right of center economist would say.
    What do you have to say for yourself?

    Hello, were you alive the last 8 years? We are where we are because of the corporatists. The capitalists are all running small businesses.

    The market hit record levels under Bush, but we were all suffering, then. Remember that?

    Again.

    The most stupid thing in the world to do in a recession, and the Messiah can't think of anything else, except "balloon the deficit".
    More baseless nonsense from the trolling gallery.
