See the video that Paul Krugman said would make his parents happy

On November 1st, the Economic Policy Institute presented New York Times columnist and Nobel laureate Paul Krugman with EPI’s first ever Distinguished Economist Award. EPI also produced a candid video in which Krugman shared his vision for a decent society, discussed the radicalizing impact of the policy debates of the last decade, and revealed his philosophy on making our society a better one for all. 

Krugman blogged, “They put together a video about, well, me, that will make my parents happy.”

We’re hoping it will make you happy, too.  Click here for the video.
