Doing your bit



This video was put together in connection with an award Paul Krugman recently received. I'm posting it for three reasons beyond the fact that it's well done and is a great overview of Krugman's work. First and primarily, the content from about the 5:00 to 6:00 minute mark where he says what he's learned from writing his column for over 10 years. But I'm not going to say it, you have to watch! It's a great point to keep in mind.

Second, it's a good reminder of the contribution that such individuals, public intellectuals, can make to the political process by planting a flag and writing, speaking and making a difference in whatever capacity they choose to do so. He does so in a very concerted way.

Third, it's Friday, so lighter fare is in order. Have a great day!
