  •  Yes. Krugman was great, as usual, then (3+ / 0-)

    Christiane interview the bond market guy, Dr. Mohamed El-Erian, and he backed up what Krugman said.

    When she introduced Krugman, she called him the Pulitzer Prize-winning economist. Krugman rolled his eyes, but the mistake went un-corrected.

    I wish Krugman would get a one-on-one interview instead of having to share the round table with George Will and others.

    •  The bond market guy runs a bond fund (0+ / 0-)

      called PIMCO, which is the most influential fund for that market segment.  It was started by a guy named Bill Gross, who is also quoted a lot on this topic.  What they say tends to be listened to carefully.
