Paul Krugman Is Not Modest

Paul Krugman illustrates a high level of modesty and humility in his post today. In analyzing the adversarial nature of economic discussion, he says of his opponents that, “early on in the debate they were, in effect, caught with their intellectual pants down,”  and that “they have been driven largely by a desire for revenge.”

He goes on to remind us that, “I was a grad student as much of this was going on.”

Well, I’m glad we got that cleared up.

    Well, he can't have HIS pants down when he's on a high horse. Besides, I think he's caught in the same trap of wanting always to be right.
