Finally, a Expert on Economics

And he’s against the Obama plan about the bailouts.  And his name is Paul Krugman.  You can see his economic blog here. Lately in the news, you always hear Democrats or Republicans saying that this bailout plan is either a good or a bad plan.  The problem is that they’re biased.  Of course they’re going to say it’s good or bad because it’s all part of party politics.  Not Krugman.  He’s part of the anti-establishment.  He’s an expert at economics: taught at Princton University, received the Nobel Prize in Economics last October, I’d say he knows his stuff and the Obama team better listen to him.  He has been critical of both the Bush Administration and Obama’s.  You can see it here:

Or you can read about him in this weeks Newsweek. Here’s someone who falls in the liberal camp, but critiques what the liberals are doing in the economy.  It’s daring, it’s bold, I like it.

I am an assistant professor (LTR) at Dalhousie University. My ideas are not associated with my employer; they are expressions of my own thoughts and ideas. Some of them are just musings while others could be serious discussions that could turn into a bigger project. Besides philosophy, I enjoy martial arts (Kuk Sool Won), playing my violin, enjoying coffee around town, and experimenting with new food.
