Paul Krugman loses.
The New York Times ought to bring Jon Henke’s post to Paul Krugman’s attention, with the instruction that Krugman ought to link to it and acknowledge it for the sake of accuracy. His readers deserve no less, after all. But for whatever reason, I really have a hard time believing that the Times will, in fact, tell Krugman to correct his earlier post on the matter. I certainly don’t think that Krugman will issue a correction on his own initiative.
