**Written by Doug Powers Yesterday, after the earthquake in the east, a quote attributed to New York Times columnist and Nobel Laureate economist Paul Krugman making the rounds stated that we’d see a bigger increase in government spending and hence economic growth if only the earthquake had done more damage. The quote didn’t seem incredibly […]

Krugman vs. Krugman Not that you needed any more evidence that New York Times columnist Paul Krugman is a flip-flopping charlatan, but here’s the latest. Today, he assails GOP proposals to raise the Medicare age and, by extension, the Social Security retirement age. (My column on the subject from earlier this month is here.) Krugman […]

Paul Krugman, Cynthia Tucker, and the unemployment benefits debate, Pt. III

By Michelle Malkin  •  March 9, 2010 10:27 PM

The AJC’s Cynthia Tucker blogged today about a testy exchange we had last summer on ABC’s “This Week” regarding government unemployment benefits and the effect that endless extensions have on reducing the incentive to seek a job. Once again, she mistakes standard economic arguments for moral judgments: “Does the right really believe the unemployed are […]

Paul Krugman: Contrary indicator

Paul Greenberg has a hilarious syndicated column out today about Paul Krugman’s ridiculous record of prognostication: It started out as a gag here on the editorial page of the Arkansas Democrat-Gazette and soon became a superstition: Every time the stock market took a little dip, we’d reprint one of Paul Krugman’s dour columns from the […]

On Friday, Editor and Publisher hyped this Sunday NYTimes magazine piece by Michael Crowley about the influence of conservative vs. liberal blogs. Maureen Dowd and Paul Krugman offer stiff competition on a weekly basis, but Crowley’s embarrassing little squib (283 words) has to be one of most insipid, shallow, and uninformed wastes of space to […]

The New York Times has run yet another correction to columnist Paul Krugman’s numerous errors regarding the recounts in Florida after the 2000 presidential election. These errors were noted by bloggers more than a month ago. The correction comes in the form of a “Letter From the Editor” by editorial page editor Gail Collins, who […]

New York Times columinst Paul Krugman corrected the strange correction to his August 22 column. NRO’s Donald Luskin notes that the latest correction “was never published in the print edition of the Times.” He also points out that “archival versions of the three prior Krugman columns bearing his falsehoods about the consortium’s results remain uncorrected […]

New York Times columnist Paul Krugman has issued two corrections to his August 19 and August 22 columns. The first correction concerns his false claim that turnout in Ohio’s Miami County last fall was an unbelievable 98.5 percent. Krugman admits he relied on figures from tinfoil hat-wearer Rep. John Conyers rather than Ohio’s Secretary of […]

Richard Baehr just tears Paul Krugman apart. This is a followup to his first ripping of Krugman. Krugman doesn’t know enough to know when he’s should just surrender and issue an apology and tried to correct his mistakes from his previous column. Unfortunately, he put yet more errors into his correction. Politicalities fisks Frank Rich. […]
