A voice of reason

Paul Krugman has won the Nobel prize for economics. His columns on the editorial page of the New York Times have always made more sense, and have been written with more conscience, than most of what's found on the Opinion pages of most newspapers.

Krugman has pummeled the Bush presidency, and castigated the runaway greed on Wall Street which precipitated our current crisis, when other opinionators were cheerleading both.

That being said, he won the Nobel for something completely different - his studies of international trade.

Well-deserved in any case.
