Whether his colleagues like it or not, Paul Krugman is the public face of the Keynesian establishment.  Replying to Krugman, therefore, involves more than criticizing just one person. Today Bob Murphy takes apart Krugman’s most recent New York Times column, in which he tries to defend Keynesianism against critics.

About the Guest

He is the author of numerous books (see below), including study guides to Ludwig von Mises’ Human Action (study guide here) and The Theory of Money and Credit (study guide here), and Murray Rothbard’s Man, Economy, and State (study guide here).
