I have a crush on Dr. Paul Krugman, Professor of Economics at Princeton. He recently received the Nobel Prize in Economics for his new theory on trade patterns and location of economic activity. Dr. Krugman is also an author and editor of about 20 books. My new copy of The Return of Depression Economics and the Crisis of 2008 just arrived. Sigh. I’m not the only reading his blog in the New York Times telling us what to do to avoid the next Depression. Now the media has caught up with Dr. Krugman and I can watch countless videos on youtube. Yes, yes, I know he’s married. That’s what makes it such a safe crush: Because it will never happen. It’s like having a crush on Bono or CR.
I wait patiently each day to read such lines as “What we’re looking at now are the consequences of a world gone Madoff.
