    How can one man get it so wrong time and time again and still get coverage as a expert?

    “It really does now look like President Donald J. Trump, and markets are plunging. When might we expect them to recover?” Krugman said in his post. “If the question is when markets will recover, a first-pass answer is never.”

    “We are very probably looking at a global recession, with no end in sight,” he added. “I suppose we could get lucky somehow. But on economics, as on everything else, a terrible thing has just happened.”
    Paul Krugman

    By the way the markets were up by the end of trading day.

    The Nobel Prize is now just considered a Democrat participation trophy.

    It's totally worthless.

    If we sucked as bad at our job as Paul Krugman does at his, we would pull into our terminals with four-wheelers dragging under our trailers.
