Prof. Paul R. Krugman Ph.D.
December 2012: 'I stopped in a couple of times at TheTimesCenter, and caught the Dealbook editor in chief Andrew Ross Sorkin‘s interview with the Goldman Sachs chief executive Lloyd C. Blankfein, as well as a session with the economist and columnist Paul Krugman. Mr. Krugman, of course, is not only a Nobel laureate, but also a rock star among the wonkish set; his presence lent the event gravitas and credibility. (One of his first questions from the audience came from a woman who thanked him effusively for his presence and gushed that she felt like “a 13-year-old at a Justin Bieber concert.”)'http://publiceditor.blogs.nytimes.com/2012/12/13/dealbook-conference-was-impressive-lucrative-and-chummy/
June 2011: "Even writers sympathetic to the notion of government regulation seemed skeptical of its prospects in the digital era. The New York Times economist Paul Krugman loudly counted himself among these worriers. In 2000 he found a connection between P2P file sharing and the proliferation of 'Net-powered overseas tax havens:"http://arstechnica.com/tech-policy/news/2011/06/how-france-proved-that-the-internet-is-not-global.ars
October 2008: ...American economist, columnist, author, and intellectual of Jewish origin. He is professor of economics and international affairs at Princeton University, and is also a columnist for The New York Times, writing a blog and a twice-weekly op-ed column for the newspaper since 2000....Krugman is generally considered a political liberal or progressive, and is an ardent critic of the George W. Bush administration and its foreign and domestic policy. Unlike many economic pundits, he is also regarded as an important scholarly contributor by his peers. He has written over 200 scholarly papers and 20 books—some academic, and some written for the layperson.http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Paul_Krugman
September 2008: 'New York Times columnist Paul Krugman said "doing nothing isn't a serious option." Treasury Secretary Henry Paulson told a House committee on Wednesday that doing nothing would "threaten American families' financial well-being, the viability of businesses both small and large, and the very health of our economy." An editorial in the Salt Lake Tribune took a similar approach.'http://news.cnet.com/8301-13578_3-10051790-38.html

Date Fairness.com Resource Read it at: Dec 13, 2012 DealBook Conference Was Impressive, Lucrative and Chummy
QUOTE: Here is what the conference did not have going for it: A great deal of distance between sources and those who cover them — something traditionally thought to be a bedrock journalistic idea....DealBook – a blog and print section dedicated to coverage of mergers and acquisitions and other related subjects — is something of an oddity at The Times. A rainmaker for the company, it has garnered its share of critics who see it as too soft on its sources.
New York Times Oct 15, 2012 Death by Ideology
QUOTE: Even the idea that everyone gets urgent care when needed from emergency rooms is false. Yes, hospitals are required by law to treat people in dire need, whether or not they can pay. But that care isn’t free — on the contrary, if you go to an emergency room you will be billed, and the size of that bill can be shockingly high. Some people can’t or won’t pay, but fear of huge bills can deter the uninsured from visiting the emergency room even when they should. And sometimes they die as a result.
New York Times Dec 22, 2011 The Post-Truth Campaign
QUOTE: Over all, Mr. Obama’s positions on economic policy resemble those that moderate Republicans used to espouse. Yet Mr. Romney portrays the president as the second coming of Fidel Castro and seems confident that he will pay no price for making stuff up.
New York Times Jun 22, 2011 Nazi hunting: How France first "civilized" the Internet
QUOTE: France has long attempted to "civilize" the Internet out of things like racism and Nazi ideology by curbing their dissemination. In fact, the first battle in this war concluded a decade ago. The winner was France; the loser was the then-reigning giant of the Web—Yahoo—along with the notion that the Internet is a "global" place that inherently transcends national boundaries.
Ars Technica Apr 14, 2011 Who's Serious Now?
QUOTE: The only real things in it were savage cuts in aid to the needy and the uninsured, huge tax cuts for corporations and the rich, and Medicare privatization… “There’s nothing serious about a plan that claims to reduce the deficit by spending a trillion dollars on tax cuts for millionaires and billionaires.”
New York Times Mar 27, 2011 American Thought Police
QUOTE: The hard right... has a modus operandi when it comes to scholars expressing views it dislikes: never mind the substance, go for the smear. And that demand for copies of e-mails is obviously motivated by no more than a hope that it will provide something, anything, that can be used to subject Mr. Cronon to the usual treatment... But there’s a clear chilling effect when scholars know that they may face witch hunts whenever they say things the G.O.P. doesn’t like.
New York Times Mar 17, 2011 The Forgotten Millions
QUOTE: No jobs bills have been introduced in Congress, no job-creation plans have been advanced by the White House and all the policy focus seems to be on spending cuts. So one-sixth of America’s workers — all those who can’t find any job or are stuck with part-time work when they want a full-time job — have, in effect, been abandoned.
New York Times Mar 13, 2011 Another Inside Job
QUOTE: The (financial crisis of 2008) has spawned a whole new set of abuses, many of them illegal as well as immoral. And leading political figures are, at long last, showing some outrage. Unfortunately, this outrage is directed, not at banking abuses, but at those trying to hold banks accountable for these abuses.
New York Times Mar 10, 2011 Dumbing Deficits Down
QUOTE: [Republicans] claim to care deeply about deficits — but they’ve spent the past two years putting cynical, demagogic attacks on any attempt to actually deal with long-run deficits at the heart of their campaign strategy.
New York Times Jan 16, 2011 The War on Logic
QUOTE: But the same spending would still be necessary if we were to undo reform. So the G.O.P. argument here is exactly like claiming that my mortgage payments, which I’ll have to make no matter what we do tonight, are a cost of going out for dinner.
New York Times Dec 16, 2010 Wall Street Whitewash
QUOTE: The bipartisan Financial Crisis Inquiry Commission was established by law to “examine the causes, domestic and global, of the current financial and economic crisis in the United States.” The hope was that it would be a modern version of the Pecora investigation of the 1930s, which documented Wall Street abuses and helped pave the way for financial reform. Instead, however, the commission has broken down along partisan lines, unable to agree on even the most basic points.
New York Times Sep 26, 2008 Do you oppose the $700 billion Wall Street bailout? Click here
QUOTE: Quote:A flurry of Web activism is channelling misgivings about the proposed $700 billion Wall Street bailout into political action.
CNET Jan 24, 2006 Second Careers
QUOTE: half the former members of Congress--half!--are now earning many times their Hill salaries by trying to persuade their ex-colleagues to fund a Bridge to Nowhere or some equivalent measure. Every special interest, in other words, is a future employer...
Washington Post Aug 19, 2005 What They Did Last Fall
QUOTE: Two different news media consortiums... found that a full manual recount would have given the election to Mr. Gore... the whitewash of what happened in Florida in 2000 showed that election-tampering carries no penalty...
New York Times Feb 24, 2003 Media question authority over war protests
QUOTE: Did the media stumble on Iraq, downplaying opposition to war with Saddam Hussein until the USA's recent confrontation with Germany and France in the United Nations and worldwide protests gave them no choice? Or was opposition to a war a gradual process that came to a head only recently, prompting massive media coverage?
USA TODAY Jan 22, 2003 Wealth of Opinions: Economist and Columnist Paul Krugman Has Emerged as Bush's Harshest Critic
QUOTE: It's a very uncomfortable thing to question the honesty and motives of your leaders...I'm saying that the men who are controlling our destiny are lying. Not many journalists or many people want to confront them. . . . I probably have a bloody-mindedness that a longtime journalist wouldn't.
Washington Post Nov 29, 2002 In Media Res
QUOTE: [Al Gore said] "The media is kind of weird these days on politics, and there are some major institutional voices that are, truthfully speaking, part and parcel of the Republican Party."
New York Times Oct 18, 2002 Springtime for Hitler
QUOTE: The strategy used to sell the Bush tax cut was simply to deny the facts — and to lash out at anyone who tried to point them out. And it's a strategy...now being applied across the board.
New York Times Aug 20, 2002 The Real Thing
QUOTE: ...there is an inexorably growing gap between the image and the reality of the Bush administration's policies.
New York Times Aug 06, 2002 The Memory Hole
QUOTE: ...Mr. Bush claims to have laid out the criteria for running a deficit when visiting Chicago during the 2000 campaign. But there's no evidence that he said anything of the sort...
