I know it is not nice to rain on someone's parade on the day he wins a Nobel Prize, but when Paul Krugman was announced as the winner, Forbes contacted me to see if I would write a brief commentary. Out of that came my article, "Krugman-in-Wonderland."
Granted, my commentary went against the grain, as most articles praised Krugman to the High Heavens for his "brilliance" and all the other nonsense that goes into lauding someone who is famous for distorting history. I figured that someone needed to sound a different note.
Anyway, that was the genesis of what would become this blog.
