Usually, the Nobel Prize for economics is won by someone for some really complex thing that doesn't make any sense to the average person. Today, though, we have a Nobel laureate we can all get behind, or at least understand. New York Times columnist Paul Krugman is the newest recipient of the prize, for his work on international finance and whatnot. Now that Krugman's political acumen has been proven and he has an extra 1.4 million dollars to kick around, we expect him to save the economy by Friday. If not, his prize should be revoked.
