Ten years ago, in The Return of Depression Economics, Paul Krugman warned of the financial crisis we are facing today.
Princeton professor and winner of the 2008 Nobel Prize in Economics, Krugman is recognized worldwide for his ground-breaking theory of international trade. In his bi-weekly column in the New York Times, Krugman delivers a no-holds-barred commentary on economic policy, politics, and more.
Paul Krugman has at least three jobs: he is professor of economics and international affairs at Princeton University, Centenary Professor at the London School of Economics, and, perhaps, his best-known job, as an op-ed columnist for The New York Times. In recognition of his influence The Washington Monthly called him "the most important political columnist in America."
