  •  You're wrong on Krugman. (4+ / 0-)

    From Wikipedia:

    Krugman's views on free trade have provoked considerable ire from the anti-globalism movement. He once famously quipped that, "If there were an Economist's Creed, it would surely contain the affirmations 'I understand the Principle of Comparative Advantage' and 'I advocate Free Trade'."

    You cite him saying that free trade qua free trade doesn't create jobs. That doesn't mean he's against it, or even that he has neutral feelings toward it. Krugman supports free trade.
