Congrats to Paul Krugman.

Paul Krugman, who is one of the most influential voices on the left, was named the winner of  the 2008 Nobel Prize in Economics.

Tim F. at Balloon Juice:

I remember the ridicule that Krugman dealt with when he refused to abandon his skepticism through 9/11 and the Iraq war hysteria. That he stuck to his guns when colleagues like Tom Friedman chased around the Sunday shows with their nose up the President’s ass only underlines the difference between Krugman’s intellectual temperament and the more ordinary minds with whom he’s forced to share a printed page. Although the award recognizes work in a field completely separate from American politics, I doubt that’s a point that the Nobel committee missed.
