Authors@Google: Paul Krugman

Wednesday, December 19, 2007 | 04:06 PM

Part of an interesting series at Google: Paul Krugman.

If you don't know who he is, Krugman writes a twice-weekly column for the op-ed page of the New York Times. He is a professor of economics and international affairs at Princeton University, and the author or editor of 20 books and more than 200 professional journal articles.

In recognition of his work, Krugman was named Columnist of the Year by Editor and Publisher magazine, and he received the John Bates Clark Medal from the American Economic Association, an award given every two years to the top economist under the age of 40. The Economist said he is "the most celebrated economist of his generation."

Note: This Authors@Google event took place December 14, 2007 at Google Headquarters in Mountain View, CA

As a heads up to readers, Krugman is now in his 50's (although he looks good enough that you could mistake him for 40), and it's been a long time since he won the Clark medal.

Clearly a brilliant guy, and one of the few op/ed columnist I've read consistently for a decade, but one trifle: I wish he had spent more time expounding on his early work concerning foreign exchange and interest rates.

The guy could have won a nobel prize if he had kept pushing in that direction. Maybe it wasn't his goal, but I'm not a fan of seeing the exceptionally gifted use their talents on *lesser* pursuits.
