Paul Krugman Attacks Ron Paul

-Lew Rockwell
How dare Ron say what he thinks about the future of the economy, and garner a vast audience while doing so, when people should instead be hanging on the words of a Keynesian statist? Krugman is not above the ad hominem, of course, in calling Ron “The Old Man.” True, Ron has the wisdom that can only come from decades of learning and experience. But Ron Paul is also astoundingly youthful. He is a great athlete, but also has the enthusiasm and optimism of youth. No wonder young people flock to him. Would  10,000 Berkeley students ever go to see Krugman? Of course, not.
