Three Cheers For Paul Krugman

He just got the Nobel Prize in economics. Most of you know him much better as a political columnist at the New York Times, but it's really important to understand that he didn't get the prize for that. He got it for his squiggly (maths) work in international trade.

I've met him in person and he seemed like a very modest and approachable guy.
