    Is Your Opinion of Paul Krugman Favor or Unfavorable?

    Pretty simple question. Do you respect Paul Krugman, or not? Why or why not?

    No respect. No ill-will. Pretty sure he'd be happier with socialism than capitalism. He's free to write what he wants, but I'm disappointed people buy into it.
    The US is an odd ship. The captain yells out when he sees obtacles , but 535 individual propellers do the steering.

    He's much too biased to be taken as an objective economist.
    I was discovering that life just simply isn't fair and bask in the unsung glory of knowing that each obstacle overcome along the way only adds to the satisfaction in the end. Nothing great, after all, was ever accomplished by anyone sulking in his or her misery.

    We'll he is openly and blatantly a Keynesian and identifies as a "big liberal" so I don't think we are arguing he is an objective economist.

    He is a tool but at least he's generally honest about his love for a socialist state. As to his objectivity, he has none.

    I would love to see the memo's and advice he gave Enron all those years he was a very well paid advisor for that company.

    Neither, he's simply a guy with a valuable opinion out of many people with valuable opinions.

    There's a difference between being a Keynesian and a socialist. Learn it.
