The thing is, America hasn't been a free market since 1913. As long as there's a Federal Reserve we will never be a free market, so Krugman's little stab at Libertarians is ridiculous.

Krugman is loving every minute of this. America is currently the nanny state that him and his Princeton Socialist pals have always dreamed about.

"Hooray China quasi-Capitalism, down with American pigdog Libertarianism!!!"

LOL! Academics are pathetic!!!
