Spotlight on R. Chris Jones: The Murphy-Krugman Campaign Breaks $10,000

Shameless Self-Promotion 2 Comments

I think we are going to have to set up a derivative contract at The Point, in which people pledge toasters for various milestones. At this rate, I am going to run out of my personal stockpile.

What can I say? With a little help from my friends–notably Tom Woods–this is spreading like wildfire. The total is now more than $10,000. We are already 10% of the way to the goal I set in the video, and this thing launched Wednesday night. I actually had to shut off the email notification because my inbox was getting unmanageable.

I realize many of you have concerns. “If ONLY Bob had tweaked this one little thing, then this would have been perfect…” You kids are going to have to trust me on this one. It is all proceeding according to plan.

(As always, if you don’t know what I’m talking about, here is the sophomoric video heard ’round the blogosphere.)

If you haven’t done so already, please consider making a pledge. I can say–without much irony–that everyone’s doing it.

    Extortion in the spirit of free markets. I like it!

    If it hasn’t happened already, I’m sure someone soon will pass it along to Krugman. He may not be able to resist making a comment on his blog about how some wacko is trying to debate him on the “phlogiston” theory of business cycles, and how it’s all part of this awful “austerian” movement.
