blowhard, Nobel laureate; whatever

Yeah, virtually the day after I called him names on my blog, Paul Krugman wins the Nobel.  Makes me look a little silly, doesn’t it?  In my defense, he’s being recognized for seriously influential economics work that he did, like, 20 years ago — not for the humorless op-ed stuff he does now in the NYT.

Of course, I was completely unaware that he was a serious, influential economist until this award, and for that I am clearly exposed as an ignoramous.  Or at least for going off half-cocked, picking a fight against someone clearly out of my league.  Oh well.

Friedman, Gladwell — if you want me to pick on you next fall, maybe you too can be America’s Next Hot Economist.
