State of the Murphy-Krugman Campaign

All Posts 4 Comments

Thanks everyone who has donated so far; we’ve got $652 pledged as of this writing.

Incidentally, some of you have probably noticed this video on LRC. It was created before mine, but I hadn’t seen it when I created mine using the same characters.

Now when Peter Thiel donates $10,000 to the campaign, we’re going to get sued. Man it really will be the Facebook movie…

Anyway please pass the link around to your friends. Once we break $1000 I will go ahead and send it to people outside the Mises orbit. They will get the idea behind it, and will want to see Krugman sputter, but they are more likely to donate if they see a solid core of support already behind it.

    Is there a reason you haven’t posted this on the Mises blog yet?

    PS, your site’s been crashing for me a bit in the last couple of days. I get an “Internal 500” error.

      Yeah I don’t know what to tell you. One thing is, Wenzel that mooch linked directly to my jpg of the hotel that my server had, so that was slowing things down. But in general I’ve been having trouble too.

      Re: mises, no reason, I will get to it. I posted this last night after my class. I also wanted this to be a “soft launch” in case there were bugs or something. But yeah I will post it as Mises today.

    You’ve certainly got a pledge from me. I’d love to see none other than you hash it out with Krugman. So it is written, so shall it be done.

    I rather see a rematch with Dean Baker.
