Krugman Alert: Should the United States Adopt the European Model?

Last week, at the invitation of Sheldon Jacobs (a longtime friend in finance and a regular attendee at FreedomFest), I went to see Paul Krugman speak at Westchester Community College, where he spoke before several hundred adults on “The European Welfare States Revisited.” Not very many students were there, but the adults there seemed to be fans of Krugman.

Krugman, pictured with me below, is America’s most famous economist, a Nobel Prize winner and New York Times columnist.

He made several controversial statements in his lecture.
