Jerry, remember what a “liberal” mean in USA, i.e., a “social-democrat”.   Maybe not as progressive as you would like, but a progressive after all!  A. Agafonow ----- Mensaje original ---- De: Gerald Levy <> Para: Outline on Political Economy mailing list <> Enviado: lunes, 13 de octubre, 2008 14:53:40 Asunto: [OPE] Paul Krugman wins Nobel Even by Nobel standards, the rationale for awarding the Prize to Krugman is particularly weak: there is a heterodox literature on economies of scale and international trade and economic geography that goes at least as far back as the early 1980s. That literature wasn't a rationalization for "free trade", though - and _that_ was specifically cited by the Academy in its statement awarding the Prize to Krugman. Perhaps it' a sign of the times that this year's awared was given to someone with the "Conscience of a Liberal" (ewe; yuck).   In solidarity, Jerry
