Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
LOL, in Britain it's called "Wonder Loaf" and is precisely presliced foam pillow with special added Stick.To.Your.Teeth™.

Thanks for your words, geez. I'm truly not offended, just don't see what I can add now that isn't going to be misunderstood.

Yes, I do find Krugman Amerocentric - more so than Stiglitz, for example. And he's certainly looking at this through his econometric glasses. Speculative attacks may seize on some measurable imbalance, but they come armed with battalions of "information" and "commentary" aimed at pumping the perception of the imbalance up to crisis level. Media pronouncements make the market. Krugman's a major media pronouncer. It's a pity he's not taking that into account and broadening the perspective of his remarks. There, that's polite.
