why i love krugman

i recently added princeton economist and ny times columnist paul krugmans blog (the conscience of a liberal) to my favorite blogs list. i would strongly recommend everyone reading his blog and his op-ed's in the ny times. i admit that he is left leaning (which most people that i associate w/ tend to disagree w/), but he is an economist who writes about current events in words that laymen can understand.
for those of you who want to know more about the housing bust, and our current economic situation, i would strongly suggest reading some of his back articles. he predicted the housing bust months (i think it was about a year) prior to its occurence. todays article on the causes of the current economic situation is particularly poignant. i would suggest you check out the link below and unleash your inner economist.
