Paul Krugman

It’s now impossible to deny the obvious, which is that we are not now and have never been on the road to recovery.

Paul Krugman is one of the preeminent economists of our time. A renowned columnist for The New York Times, Krugman won the 2008 Nobel Prize in Economics for his groundbreaking work on international trade and economic geography. In addition to the Nobel Prize, Krugman’s work in economics has earned him broad acclaim from the economic press and several prestigious awards, including the John Bates Clark medal for his work on international trade.  He is recognized worldwide as a pioneer in the study of increasing returns and a founder of a groundbreaking new theory of international trade. He also is a leader in the field of economic geography.

A gifted observer and contributor on policy and economics, he has published over 200 scholarly articles and several books including the recent bestseller, The Return of Depression Economics and the Crisis of 2008. A previous book, The Great Unraveling, was a New York Times bestseller.

Since the financial crisis he has been an advocate for increased stimulus spending and a staunch critic of austerity programs. Professor Krugman teaches economics and international affairs at Princeton University.
