Paul Krugman, the king of Keynesianism and a strong supporter of the delusion that you can print your way out of debt, faces depression at his very own doors.

According to this
report in Austria's Format online mag, Krugman owes $7.35 million while assets to his name came in at a very meager $33,000. This will allow the economist and New York Times blogger to get a feel of how the majority of Americans go about their dreadful lives without any savings and a social system that will only shed pennies to him.
Krugman's list of debts shows a stunning similarity as to what's wrong these days.

The biggest chunk is related to a $8.7 million loan for his Manhattan condo, followed by $621,000 in credit card debt. Krugman probably is not seen of 5th Avenue anymore. Among his list of creditors, Tiffany's stands out with a $33,000 in open collections.

Things really went downhill for the star economist. His Manhattan residence lost 40% in value and makes one wonder how can somebody do so bad in the best of all US property hotspots.
Krugman went deeper into the red by impulsive shopping splurges, throwing his money after Portuguese wines and British dresses from the Victorian period, flattening his Black Amex card by $84,000 in one month.

The Austrian source article cited is SATIRE -- the Austrian version of The Onion, essentially. Still, it's excellent satire!

This Paul Krugman was crushed with that hoof & mouth disorder of `spending like there`s no tomorrow`. Where as Ron Paul who won the debate between the two Paul`s: Ron Paul vs Paul Krugman. In both theory and in life Ron Paul has won. Though his portfolio is heavily weighted with precious metals of Gold & Silver of about $2.4 - $5.5 million , both in the physical metals, not those losers of ETF`s, but also in some 23 other miners many of them small Canadian risky juniors -- So what, Ron Paul at least has some money to his name unlike Krugman has only debt. All Krugman has to do to get more fiat money is `lie` some more for the powers that be, the owners of the FED, then he will be flush again.

.....Oh, this is priceless....... (that is, Krugman clearly doesn't sweat the PRICE when he plops down his Visa). How can we get the MSM to bite on this rich tidbit? Alas, not likely.
