what I like more about his new breed of ecnomists is that this narrative is becoming common wisdom in economic circles..not only here. What are they going to do (the mass mediaand the corpocrats) when they lose "very serious economists" for the cause?... I bet they will become suddenly "dangerous econo-pink" in the "mind of people"....

a pleasure

I therefore claim to show, not how men think in myths, but how myths operate in men's minds without their being aware of the fact. Levi-Strauss, Claude

Krugman has loooooooooong been described as dangerously eco-pink.

He is the epitome of the serious man who cannot break into "serious people". Him, with probably the best record of forecast and analysis around, is constantly dismissed as talking trash.

Earth provides enough to satisfy every man's need, but not every man's greed. Gandhi
