One response to “Harald Schumann On The Trail – Talking to Paul Krugman

  1. I have been following the ups and downs and ins and outs of Paul Krugman for a few years now. I cannot understand why anyone would consider him more than a shill for the US government’s economic policies. Oh, yes, he comes out “against” once in a while, but he is as meek as a lamb against neoliberalism. You really need to do some background research and read his articles before you consider him an economist valuable for the Left.
