Easily the best Krugman... (no doubt over influenced by Asimov, but that's one of the prices of being young).... clearly the basis for many a new career.

  Perhaps the most significant contribution of Paul Krugman,
  recipient of this year's Bank of Sweden Prize, to economic
  theory is *attached*.

  Who can deny that this is an extension of mainstream
  trade theory to other worlds? It tackles the following
  monumental and cosmic question:

  "how should interest charges on goods in transit be computed
  when the goods travel at close to the speed of light?".
