Economist Paul Krugman, known for his twice-weekly columns (and blog) for The New York Times, has won the 2008 Nobel Prize for Economics.
Krugman ought to have won a Nobel Prize for multitasking. Besides his work at The Times since 1999, he also has written or edited a few dozen books, hundreds of essays, and still remains on the faculty at Princeton. (“This semester Mr. Krugman is teaching a small graduate-level course on international monetary policy and theory,” reports The Times.) He is regarded as a liberal champion at The Times, a notion reflected in the title of his 2007 book The Conscience of a Liberal.
