Paul Krugman Drinking Game

In Australia, universities are currently on their summer holidays. This is a time where instead of allowing students to finish their degrees earlier, universities allow their lecturers to do their “real work” without all those pesky students to teach. In the absence of formal education students need to find fun ways of learning more about economics. In response to this need I have created the Paul Krugman drinking game. The rules of the game are simple.

1. First one person is chosen to read articles from Paul Krugman’s New York Times blog, the Conscience of a Liberal.
2. Everytime Prof. Krugman refers to one of his own papers or claims to have written about something before anyone else you have a drink.
3. Don’t drive home after this game as you will be very drunk.

Just to be fair to Paul Krugman I have enjoyed reading many of his papers, blog entries and his book return to Depression Era Economics.

  1. Leading with you chin as usual, Sanchez. Unbelievable. Here’s the first rule in any debating tactic. Never ask a question you don’t the answer to.

    “Op-Ed columnist Paul Krugman has the disturbing habit of shaping, slicing and selectively citing numbers in a fashion that pleases his acolytes but leaves him open to substantive assaults”

    Dan Okrent, The New York Times first public ombudsman. Hysterical that the public Omb appinted by the Times after their major scandal calls Krugman a liar.

  2. Cheers, JC.

    That makes two examples of writers attempting to debunk Krugman’s actual arguments, while Justin Campbell can only muster cheap mockery without any original thought.

    Any more?
