    LOL, recovery comes from the bottom. We just don't know where they get all that money from. Obviously not from growth at the top where all the sustainable money is.

    Yes, economists are all about charts and graphs. And the good ones can integrate those, predict, build models off of basic principles. I guess Krugman could be a good economist if he wasn't so two dimensional and could build on the basics to create an economic model that works and anticipates effects of his initial policies.
    Get informed: UNICEF foreign adoption policy is killing orphans and the US gives $132 million to UNICEF every year. Stop the madness.

    None of this **** has anything to do with the Nobel Prize........It was strictly a political move by a far left organization........

    ... Really? Just so I know - what's "far left" about NPP?

    It's not a joke but it is highly political.

And, sure, maybe Yassar Arafat wasn't a great choice, either (don't harp on me about Arafat; I don't know much about Palestine/Israel).

    But looking through all the winners since 1901, I can't help overlook a few miscalculations and see the bigger picture. The Nobel prize is a pretty good thing, I'd say.

    I'm expecting some pretty bitter comments regarding this issue...
    Overlooking these "miscalculations" is where the bitter comments stem from. Even when someone else is willing turn a blind eye there will be someone still there to point it out.

    Oh well, I will most likely still watch this baseball season and next years football season even though those professional sports leagues have had some mud on their faces in the past also.

    With limited knowledge I have to agree that the Nobel Peace Prize has lost its symbolic meaning.

    How is that fair? Just because he's a black man elected as president does not make one worthy of the Nobel Prize.

    The prize should be earned based on one's actions, not on one's skin color.

    People who don't win awards tend to get mad at others who do. Hence this thread exists.
