    geez, you can cut the invective a bit. i think you and i tend to agree on things more than disagree.

    i picked on the title cuz it did make it seem to be a hit on Krugman, especially at a time when anyone going against the austerity shit is attacked by the PTB. i bristle at this stuff. i do understand though that the title draws the reader, but when you use a title like that you've got to expect a little pushback, even from unexpected places.

    and i did a little research and could not find anyone ither than Peter that was in the Nobel family who objected. but i did note that i agree with Peter's objections. but if others in the family had been critical, i could not find it in my looking, though it was only a short time i had. i did find several places where Peter criticized, just none from any others.

    and no, i'm not blaming the family for Obama's peace prize. all i was saying was there is a lot more to be critical about in regards to the Nobel Prizes, than simply the memorial economic award.

    that's all i was saying and you're coming on like i spit on you or something...

      I was getting shell-shocked by the time I responded to you and took it out on you. Please accept my apologies for my rudeness. And for my repeatedly failing to properly interpret your comments. I really just wanted to draw attention to the story of the creation of the economics prize and thought using Krugman would be a more honest way to do it.

      I somewhat underestimated how some would respond. Anyway, I do see that you and I are allies and I do hope that you will be able to forgive my impertinence going forward.
