2008 Nobel Prize Winner — Paul Krugman

Posted in economics by ittecon on October 13, 2008

I was pleased to hear this morning that Paul Krugman has been awarded the Nobel Prize in Economics. Paul is a professor of economics at Princeton University, syndicated columnist for the New York Times, and the author of Conscience of a Liberal. I highly recommend reading the book, which provides some historical prespective around why the United States has developed the political climate we now live in. His main focus seems to be Universal Healthcare, and he supports his case by linking it to other successfully implemented New Deal policies.
