    [quote user="ladyattis"] I don't know much about Krugman, but I have read his opinion articles. So I'll only judge those instead. [/quote] But he isn't winning a prize for best op-ed columnists. Krugman is winning a prize for international trade contributions.

    [quote user="John Ess"] First, how is hidden statism more or less damaging to anarchism than open statism?[/quote] Quite simple really, and Sun Tzu did a great job of explaining it. Deception is the greatest tool to use to defeat a cause. Hidden statists are deceptive, open statists, on the other hand, at least show you where they're coming

    [quote user="Jon Irenicus"] OK, so what would be exceptional about him then, as compared to other economists? -Jon [/quote] You really should read his Pop Internationalism.

    [quote user="Jon Irenicus"] How, pray tell, does he even begin to compare with Hayek, apart from receiving the same token of appreciation, awarded by some central bank? I'm curious. -Jon [/quote] Well, he begins to compare with Hayek by being in the same scientific field, for one - just as every economist would compare to him. Two, I did

    [quote user="Jon Irenicus"] Indeed. It's one thing to say Krugman has some good ideas (which other economists share and have expressed as well or better) and another thing to say he's a good economist overall. -Jon [/quote] Apparently not well enough to associate them with the same circle inhabited by FA Hayek.

    [quote user="John Ess"] I think calling Keynesianism and New Deal-type crap "regressive" is pretty spot on -- if it isn't then I don't know what is. I mean it's old stuff, been proven bunk over and over again, has diminished in credibility, and will not yield market anarchism in any possible way, either. Quit being a
