Frequent Free Advice commentator (who is no slave to the demands of courtesy, I should say) E. Harding posted this link to his analysis of Krugman’s recent book review of Robert Reich. It is absolutely mind-blowing to see how this guy rolls. Look at how Krugman talks now about his thoughts of Reich’s earlier book (from the 1990s), compared to how he talked about Reich back then. I think Krugman really still hasn’t understood that the Internet changes the rules; you can’t go Kontradicting yourself so blatantly when there’s an electronic record.
I’m tempted to do an excerpt, but then you might not click the link and see the various quotes juxtaposed. You really need to go to the link to see how bad it is.
