Reviewing Paul Krugman
Posted by: Jon Henke on Wednesday, October 10, 2007

Greg Mankiw directs me to this Ed Glaeser review of Paul Krugman's new book. Summary...
Mr. Krugman has written a sweeping political history of the past 135 years from a stridently liberal Democratic viewpoint. In Krugman's worldview, noble Democratic progressives have long battled a conspiracy of Republican knaves who are themselves the pawns of selfish plutocrats.

He advances his viewpoint not by misstating facts but by omitting those parts of the past that make history messier.
Let's not undersell Krugman's ability to misstate facts, as well. (etc)

Krugman has said he was "radicalized" by the Bush administration. Unfortunately, that process turned him into the shameless, deceptive partisan hack that he claims to hate.

Are you sure? Because when I read that earlier, I was pretty sure he was directing me.

Actually you’re probably right. You are more given to taking direction than I am. [/rimshot]

Bah! I don’t buy for a moment that you don’t submit to direction. You’re as married as I am.

Memo to me: no Christmas card for Michael this year. (unless so directed by my wife)

I’m reminded of the old adage, "Facts are facts, but context is everything. This is a major factor in the other adage that Statistics lie.
