Paul Krugman received the Nobel Memorial Prize in Economic Sciences for 2008, honoring his work in international trade patterns. Previously he was awarded what is understood to be the European Pulitzer Prize, the Asturias Award given by the King of Spain. He is best-known to the general public as an op-ed columnist and blogger for the New York Times. In recognition of his influence The Washington Monthly called him “the most important political columnist in America.” Mr. Krugman’s reputation extends well beyond the U.S. The Asia Times recently called him “the Mick Jagger of political/economic punditry.” The Economist said he is “the most celebrated economist of his generation.”
