    • The Role of Politicians in an Oligarchy…
      …is to wrangle voters for oligarchs then enact policies to make the rich, richer.

What has Krugthulu been up to lately?

He’s been pimping his book, End This Depression Now!.  He’s been getting a lot of publicity lately and has been on a book tour in Europe and here.  I found this youtube video of Paul giving a short presentation on his book and doing a Q&A in Cambridge, MA.  For an economist, he’s very entertaining and funny.  I like his upbeat optimism.

Here’s hoping his book is wildly successful and that the working class (that would be all of us not living on our investments, O Best Beloved) encounter him in their travels across the media spectrum.  I fear he is a tiny voice in the wilderness unless he hits #1 on Amazon.

Disclaimer: You don’t need to order it from Amazon.  You can buy it at Barnes and Noble.  I saw it there yesterday.  You can probably get it at the Princeton Book Store, if you’re so inclined.  Or iTunes.  Whatever frosts your crockies.  I only mention Amazon because their top ranked booklist tends to get a lot of attention and maybe some economically and politically naive person might stumble on it.  Let’s not make this a diatribe about how evil Amazon is as a corporation or, you know, foolish consistencies, hobgoblins and all that.

  1. Sounds fun! I’ll play it while I do my morning walk!! Thanks, RD.

  2. My old browser doesn’t support these new-fangled videos, but yes, here’s hoping Krugman gets some attention. Except perhaps for the part about the Europeans needing to experience a Sherman’s march.

    I was going to say that my favorite Just So Story was “The Butterfly that Stamped,” but I took another look and perhaps this isn’t the place for it.

  3. I’ve BEEN to this bookstore!!! Just last February, in fact — it’s great!

  4. I really enjoyed this talk. He gave a pretty long introduction then opened the discussion up for questions. And there were some pretty good questions.
