Paul Krugman ( 1953- )

Premio Nobel nobel_25.gif (2335 bytes)2008

El premio del Banco Central de Suecia en memoria de Alfred Nobel 2008 ha sido concedido al Paul Krugman "por su análisis de las pautas de comercio y la localización de la actividad económica" destacando así su contribución a la teoría economía internacional y la geografía económica.

Paul KrugmanDoctorado por el MIT en 1977, ha sido profesor en Yale, Stanford, MIT y Princeton. Ha sido asesor económico del Presidente de los EEUU durante la administración Reagan. En 1991 recibió la medalla John Bates Clark que concede cada dos años la American Economic Association a un economista menor de 40 años. También recibió el Premio Príncipe de Asturias de Ciencias Sociales en el año 2004.

Es posiblemente el economista más popular de nuestra época ya que ha combinado su trabajo académico e investigador con el divulgativo. Publica habitualmente en The New York Times, en la revista Fortune "No Free Lunch" y en la revista electrónica Slate "The Dismal Science".

Sus investigaciones integran el espacio en la teoría económica mediante la incorporación de conceptos como mercados imperfectos, rendimientos a escala, los efectos de la aglomeración y el progreso técnico en la formación de modelos. Es considerado cofundador de la nueva teoría del comercio exterior y de la New Economic Geography.

Considera que través de sucesivas integraciones económicas no se alcanza necesariamente un aumento general del bienestar. Los ganadores del comercio global son especialmente los países industrializados, en tanto que los países en vías de desarrollo pueden sacar pocas ventajas con la tendencia a la liberalización del comercio. Esto es válido aún dentro de regiones o grandes países donde surgen en centros urbanos industriales lugares de producción altamente especializados que marcan de nuevo grandes diferencias entre ganadores y perdedores.

Gordon Does Good

With stunning speed, the British government defined the character of the worldwide rescue effort. Now other wealthy nations have to catch-up.

Moment of Truth

If a new rescue plan is not announced this weekend, the world economy may experience its worst slump since the Great Depression.

Health Care Destruction

Republicans still hate Medicare and have not been able to kill it. Since that is out, John McCain is going after insurance of nonelderly Americans instead.

Edge of the Abyss

The financial news since the middle of last month has been grim. And what's truly scary is that we're entering a period of severe crisis with weak, confused leadership.

October 3, 2008
The 3 A.M. Call

The next president will likely have to deal with some major financial emergencies. Barack Obama seems well informed. John McCain, on the other hand, scares me.

September 29, 2008
Where Are the Grown-Ups?

The grown-up thing to do is to rescue the financial system. If Henry Paulson isn't the grown-up we need, are Congressional leaders able to fill the role?

September 26, 2008
Cash for Trash

Henry Paulson is demanding extraordinary power for himself to deploy taxpayers' money on behalf of a plan that, as far as I can see, doesn't make sense.

Crisis Endgame

Faced with the financial crisis spinning out of control, much of Washington appears to have decided that government isn't the problem, it's the solution.

September 19, 2008
Financial Russian Roulette

If institutions need to be rescued like banks, they should be regulated like banks why were we so unprepared for this latest shock?
