News Hour - Paul Krugman & Donald Marron discuss Geithner's plan:


In my view Krugman summarized the problem well when he said: "It's really toxic banks and not the toxic assets that are the problem"

I Have a Crush on Alex Trebek

He has improved A LOT

I remember he went on a media blitz after winning the Nobel prize and I realized something was wrong then. I think by now he has treated it, judging by this new round of media appearances. Thanks.

he is looking directly at camera

...but some people have problem looking directly at others eyes.

some autistic or those with aspergers syndrome have such symptom also. The curve of human beings populations minds from highly intelligent to the average is at places defined as autistic and alike ...

If those such as Bethhoven and Einstein were treated with A.D.D. pills or behaviorial treatments when a child, we probably wouldnt have had such historical characters.

Today we tend to try to make everyone NORMAL to fit our definitions and in this effort we lose many great potential future contributions and minds.. 

Krugman could be somewhere along the edges of that human curve

I have a serious question about Krugman

by I Have a Crush on Alex Trebek on

Nothing to do with his plans or ideas - but does he have some kind of autism or anything like that? Whenever he does interviews, he cannot look at the camera or reporter. It's very strange for someone with his standing if you know what i mean. Usually these people are very well trained to be in front of cameras and sit still. It would be interesting because autistics are good with numbers and generally see what others might miss. I like Krugman. Thanks for posting this.
