Blackadder’s Lair

The home of many a cunning plan


Like Morning’s Minion, I would like to congratulate Paul Krugman on his Nobel win. While Krugman’s writing on economics is not without its problems (see here for a critique), like the girl in the nursery rhyme when he was good he was very very good. He’s obviously a first-rate intellect and theorist, and people have been mentioning his name and “Nobel” in the same sentence for about as long as I can remember. So, in honor of Krugman’s win, bellow are some of my favorite of his more popular articles:

In Praise of Cheap Labor.

The Accidental Theorist.

Unmitigated Gauls.

Ricardo’s Difficult Idea.

Downsizing Downsizing.

The Living Wage.
