Paul Krugman's Enduring Narrative

Paul Krugman does not like to be confused by the facts, especially if those facts contrast with his own narratives. In a recent column for the Mises Daily page, I look at how Krugman's semi-weekly "talking points" tend to conflict with reality.

One of the things that always amazes me is the utter shamelessness that Krugman demonstrates. As this Youtube video points out, Krugman attempted to use a number of Canadians to shill for their own health system. When most of those present pointed out that they did not much care for Canadian care, Krugman decides that perhaps he needs to change the subject.

Interestingly, Krugman never does allude to this incident in any of his articles. I'm shocked, SHOCKED at his omission.

You are nobody who's done nothing.

I know who I'm betting with.

Go back to your Christian cave and hang with your delusion boy Jesus.

Leave the real world to real intellects.
