This is about a month old now, but I just saw it and wanted to post it. Loudon Wainwright III plays “The Krugman Blues” off his new album “10 Songs for the New Depression.” It’s actually pretty decent, even funny (to the economist in me). The one downside of the song is the realization that Krugman has influenced so many to mistaken beliefs about the economy today. Lyric in the second verse, “All the other experts all seem way off base. And I guess that I identify with that pissed off look on Paul’s face.” Guess that gives me Krugman Blues of a whole ‘nother sort.
