Paul Krugman Wins Nobel Prize for Economics

Wow, that's awesome.

I have two interesting Paul Krugman stories, both of the brush with greatness variety.

The first was from back in 2004. I had just recorded a segment for Wall Street Week at a remote studio in midtown, when I literally run into him -- collide -- sending my papers flying everywhere.

The second story is even less significant. I have the unique privilege of being the first link in his first blog post.

The Role of Geography in Development

Excellent! I love Krugman although I think he is sometimes way too wimpy on TV. Now that he has won the Nobel, then maybe he can more forcefully put his right wing adversaries in their place, because as anyone who has done business on an international level knows, pure laissez faire sucks.

Then again, we all thought Scholes and Merton were the sh*t right before LTCM blew up.
