Nobody Wants To See Paul Krugman Get Discredited and Embarassed To His Face, Do They?

An economist named Pedro Schwartz reviews Krugman's book -- which I believe is this recently-released one, End This Depression -- to his beady-eyed, trollish face.

The review is not a positive one.

This is a debate, but each speaker gets to speak his entire thesis (15 minutes or so) while the other just sits silently.

Krugman is red-faced in anger, and reportedly did not shake Pedro Schwarz's hand at the end of the debate.

Pedro takes the stage at 35:00 (or thereabouts). Krugman begins responding at around 48:00. Worth watching; maybe mark it for later.

Key quote:

Keynesians got us into this mess and now we (non-Keynesians) have to sacrifice our principals so that they can get us out of this mess.

Later on, around 1:06, they start going at it again.
