Huvet på spiken

Scott Sumner sätter ord på vad jag ser som Paul Krugman’s största brist.

I don’t expect Krugman to agree with all the conservatives mentioned in the posts he links to.  But it would be nice if he took enough time to sympathetically look at their arguments so that he wasn’t just dismissing them out of hand, as if they were a bunch of GOP lackeys.  I’ve read most of them, and they are very bright and thoughtful intellectuals.  Instead he writes posts bragging that he tries to avoid reading conservatives because they have nothing useful to say.  Krugman’s an incredibly skilled blogger in certain respects, but would be even better if he could become as open-minded as some of the other elite bloggers.
