MORE LIBERTARIAN AND CONSERVATIVE HOSTILITY TO KRUGMAN'S NOBEL PRIZE

Today's Second Buggy Commentary

These follow-up comments and analysis were posted at Carpe Diem . . . the libertarian site maintained by a good economist, Professor Mark Perry of the University of Michigan.  They reproduce some of the comments left by prof bug at the Marginal Revolution, a very popular web site run by Prof. Tyler Cowen and Perry's former Ph.D. thesis-superviser; but those comments at Carpe Diem range far more widely, and are intended to elicit some reactions from Professor Perry's libertarian followers.

Click here for the follow-up comments on Krugman, his trade theoretical work, his Nobel prize, and American industrialization in the 19th and early 20th century behind considerable trade protection . . . with the Republican Party until the post WWII era the bedrock of protectionist sentiment in America.
