Nobel Laureate Paul Krugman

I don't actually have the time to read everything and make an actual comment on this. Suffice it to say that (as should be obvious) I pay a good deal of attention to what Dr. Krugman has to say, both economically and politically, and as such I'm glad to see him receive this honor.

Most commenters seem to agree that it has been a long time coming and that being so political of late may have delayed the event.

A second running theme has been that the Nobel Committee must have it in for Bush, first Al Gore and now Paul Krugman etc.

Here is a sampling of economic thinkers who I follow online and their thoughts...

Freakonomics (Levitt, and Wolfers)

Dean Baker (Doesn't say much)

Andrew Leonard
(Krugman's been right)

Ezra Klein
(several follow ups)

And the good doctor himself.
