One could grow rich betting against Paul Krugman

Economist Paul Krugman (Nobel-winning economist, as the article points out) has Voiced Another Opinion. This time, he states that, with the election of Trump, "We're about to enter, or may already have entered, an era of corrupt governance unprecedented in US history".

Gawrsh, Paul, you mean even more corrupt than Hillary Clinton and her stint at State? More corrupt than her "charitable" foundation's influence peddling?

I suspect that Krugman will wind up being as wrong with this prognostication as he is about everything else.

That's "former Enron advisor Paul Krugman".

And yes, betting against him is good, ummm... advice. ;-)

Does his wife still ghostwrite his columns? She of the "Occupy" economics bent?

Paul Krugman always looks to me to be a little nervous; his beady eyes seem to be scanning the horizon for enraged patriots, finally coming for him with tar and feathers.
How can the charlatan have any credibility left with anyone?

Because he mouths proper progressive platitudes, and has a Nobel Prize to wave around, as if that makes him immune from criticism.
