Krugman Wins Nobel

The New York Times columnist and economist Paul Krugman has won the Nobel Prize in Economics. Considering that Al Gore won the Nobel Peace Prize last year, it is clear that, despite the past eight years of terrible leadership, the international community still reveres the United States and looks to us for leadership on multiple fronts. This serves as more evidence that we could slow down the negative Bush-mentum with a Democratic president and the liberal ethos of people like Al Gore and Paul Kurgman.


I don’t know much because I am young. Have conservative ideologues consistently won international recognition in the past? Even if they have, it certainly isn’t happening now. I don’t want to sound like an elitist, but if the United States wants to preserve its status as a global leader economically and politically, then needs to start listening to the global community. And international praise in the form of Nobel Prizes is an isolated but clear example of where the international community stands.
Note: Krugman received an honorary degree from Haverford College in 2004.
