Paul Krugman. Ron Paul. The Bloomberg TV top card fight between the King of the Keynesians and the Gollum of Goldbugs is pretty gripping stuff here, even for laymen. For econ nerds like myself, it's watching Optimus Prime and Megatron slugging it out for 20 minutes. Grab some popcorn and pull up a chair for this one:
Love this. Ron Paul opens up with about 5 minutes of stump speech, but Krugman is having none of Paul's "get off my lawn" crap and goes after him on policy arguments and doesn't back down. It's a good battle and Paul gets increasingly desperate at it progresses as Krugman points out that austerity is killing Europe. I'd like to see a longer debate on this, frankly.
Do watch the whole thing.
