Krugman Wins the Nobel in Economics

Some positive commentary from fellow economists:
Mankiw
Cowen
Tabarrok
Caplan
Kling
Levitt
Wolfers
Hall
Harford
Chinn

Some mixed or negative commentary from fellow economists:
White
Boettke
Roberts
Perry

My take: Krugman's contributions to the science of economics as a scholar are extremely important and deserved to win the Nobel. I have taught them in my courses many times.

I ignore however his post-scholar work as a journalist. He didn't win a Nobel for writing articles for a newspaper.
