ManiaC on Krugman

He won the nobel prize, apparently, so I was reading his column. First time ever, actually. I'm also reading one of his papers.

Well, he's obviously a partisan hack and if I could beat him with my crowbar, ending his indirect attempts to control the lives of others, I would.

That said, he's not a bad economist. I disagree with a lot of unapplied science, and his work especially. What's the use of modeling a mercantilist/socialist/whatever economic system that we know is inherently flawed? Shouldn't we be directing our effort to instituting a better one? I don't oppose scientific investigation, even if it seems utterly pointless, although I do oppose its public funding.

In some respects, though, his utterly amoral and consequentialist approach is the conservative and lean one.
