We can surely do better! Could we aim for a "show, don't tell" - i.e. show where he is wrong, ideally by linking and/or quoting from articles that criticize him, instead of just blankly stating that he is incompetent? Pestergaines 17:43, 14 November 2010 (CST)

Seconded. "...repeatedly display an inability to grasp fundamental economic concepts" sounds editorial, not factual, nor are the opinions even backed up with facts. A reader stumbling upon this article would naturally conclude that the whole wiki is heavily biased and unsupported by evidence. 22:29, 14 November 2010 (CST)

I agree. No one else had started the page so I decided to, and I couldn't resist a dig.SamPat 22:58, 14 November 2010 (CST)

I agree as well, this reminds me of the one time I checked out Conservapedia (sp?). It took about two seconds for me to realize it was heavily biased and went much further than statement of facts. Can we just kill the sentence about the inability to understand concepts and inflation? M.detrinquelague 08:28, 15 November 2010 (CST)

Source for more quotes

Here are some more interesting quotes of Krugman; however, they are from the Unofficial Krugman Archive, it would be much more elegant to find the specific links, interviews, etc. where he said them. Always better to go directly to the source of the statement. And there's another quote to source from 2005. Pestergaines 13:50, 5 January 2011 (CST)
