Once again, NY Times ‘economist’ Paul Krugman is spectacularly wrong, this time about the U.S. response to coronavirus pandemic

This guy is too busy being a Left-wing hack to worry about the facts

By Jon Dougherty @TheNatSent

(TNS) Question: How do you get to be a Pulitzer Prize-winning economist and politico when you’re so spectacularly wrong about everything you’re supposed to know?



Answer: The prizes are awarded by like-minded Leftists who all belong to the same cabal of self-congratulatory elitists.



That helps explain why New York Times ‘economist’ Paul Krugman is a Pulitzer winner, despite being wrong about nearly everything. His political Leftism clouds his judgment, which has been greatly compounded in the Age of President Trump.

On Sunday, Krugman took to Twitter to claim that the United States’ response to the coronavirus outbreak has been the “worst” in the world.

Why has our President Trump’s response been so bad? Well, because, according to Krugman, America is just bad, period.

Uh-huh. And yet, so many people around the world want to come to this crappy, third-world, cauldron of hatred and racism.

But enough of that. Truth is, Krugman’s just plain wrong again — about everything (his figures and his anti-American attitude).

We are nowhere near the top in terms of ‘worst COVID-19 response ever.’ As for deaths from coronavirus, Italy has fared far worse, and as for China, the Communist government lies about everything, including the virus’ outbreak, which originated there.

Also, Krugman is supposed to be an Ivy League-educated economist; why does he not understand “per capita” measurements? America is suffering 6.3 deaths per million residents; far lower than other countries (like Iran, Italy, Spain, etc.)



But of course, Krugman isn’t trying to be accurate. He’s trying to be a hack because it’s all about dumping on President Trump, day in, day out.

Why? Why? Why? do these elitists think they are smarter than everyone else? Krugman, along with Joe Biden, have been on the wrong side of the economics picture forever.

Why are the media not publishing every measure in per capita terms? I was just looking at a covid 19 info page; Europe has nearly 400k cases, to the US 140k. Why is everyone comparing apples to oranges all of a sudden? Because on a per capita basis, I don’t think the US is doing as bad as the EU, which is much more comparable than comparing the US to EU member states. Let’s compare New York 60k cases with Italy 98k cases. Even the epicenter of the US seems to be better than Italy.

Paul is just a hack, nothing more. Remember when he said the stock market would crash the day after Trump’s inauguration? Yeah wrong there and wrong so many the since then.

also, Krugman disregards the total population of the country. 100,000 infected in the US is about 1 out of every 3000 people (300 million divided by 100,000). In Italy, is about 1 in 600 (60 million divided by 100,000). In Spain, 47 million divided by 100,000 is 1 out of every 470 people. THE US IS WAY AHEAD! If you do the same calculation for China, they report 1.4 billion divided by 75,000 cases which is about 1 case for every 19000 people. This is one way we know we know China’s numbers are a full lie.

The Ferret is to the Economics prize as Arafat, Algore, and Obama are to the “Peace” prize.

There is no surprise here, Krugman hasn’t gotten anything close to right in the last decade. Personally I think he is well down the Biden road of senility or maybe just stupidity.

Trump and the American People know what’s going on in the Times and MSM in General…..The “Little People” have access to many different sources of information allowing them to separate the BS from Fact !!!! The NYT is going out of Business because of people like Krugman and his garbage is ignored…..

Why are these self indulged idiots held to such high esteem. Generally speaking only among other idiots, but with the press controlled by similar ilk, we are stuck with it. He is the. AH of writers, so who cares.

Krugman being wrong is nothing new, he hasn’t got anything right in the last decade. Maybe he is on the senility road with his buddy Biden or maybe he just decided to be stupid and ignorant.

our “long term health lagging behind” might be because we are more willing to take in thousands of poorly educated, unhealthy, and basically unsanitary people form anywhere in the world. other countries won’t let youy in if you are sick, stupid or dirty.

An Ivy League or any other education for that matter is an individual achievement and often a minimum requirement to do whatever it is you want to do in this life. How it translates to the adult world and your competence in it are two entirely different things.

Someone once quoted Paul Krugman to me in a response to a Facebook posting I made, as if what Krugman said settled the issue we were discussing……..

“The below thread will blow all liberal talking points out of the water”. Read This Absolutely Epic Thread Exposing the Media’s Terrible Response to Trump’s Coronavirus Actions While it may seem like the media are all in on pronouncing President Trump’s Wuhan flu response as inadequate and slow, that wasn’t always the case. In fact, there was a time just a few months ago where the lion’s share of the media were complaining that the actions being taken were too harsh. Gathering many of the different articles that took that line would be a herculean research task. Luckily, Lyndsey Fifield… Read more »

It’s the Nobel he got, they added a prize for Economics in 1969. Some people said at the time it would have made more sense to give it for Mathematics as the standards for that were more “scientific” than Economics, and as and old Econ major I would have to agree. The origins of Economics are just plain applied math, but a great deal of what has come since is mostly ideology dressed up in a lot of scary-looking formulas. A great deal of it is outright bunk, based on fairy tale assumptions chosen to produce the result they wanted… Read more »
