Krugman received a Ph.D. from MIT – and has taught at several schools including Yale, MIT, and Stanford. He’s written 20 books – including several best-sellers – and over 200 papers on international trade, finance, currencies, and several other areas. He’s the recipient of numerous awards – including the Nobel Prize in economics, which he won in 2008. Currently – he is a professor of economics and current affairs at Princeton University – and you can read Paul Krugman’s work everyday as a columnist on the pages of the New York Times. His new book is titled: End This Depression Now. Europe is in crisis mode. The United States could be headed off a fiscal cliff at the end of the year. And Congress doesn’t seem to know what to do.
