Ron Paul vs. Paul Krugman: Internet Economic Titans Debate
The economic heavy weights, Ron Paul and Paul Krugman, duked it out in a live television debate. Paul represents the rabid base of Internet libertarians. And, of course, Paul Krugman is the chief economic voice of the New York Times with a regular column that speaks for many liberals around the country.
“If you think that you can avoid that you’re living in the world that was 150 years ago,” said Krugman, which was indicative of the tone of the debate.
