Paul Krugman is one of the most highly respected and well-known economists in the world. He is a professor emeritus of the Woodrow Wilson School of Princeton University, a distinguished professor of the Graduate Center Economics Ph.D program and scholar at the Luxembourg Income Study Center, both at City University of New York.
Krugman’s work in examining international trade patterns and the global distribution of economic activity and resources was awarded the Nobel Memorial Prize in Economic Sciences in 2008. His academic work has focused on economic geography, international finance and trade, and currency fluctuations. As a columnist for The New York Times, he has written countless articles on nearly every imaginable economics topic, including taxation, income distribution, and liquidity traps. He is credited with pioneering a new trade theory and a new economic geography through his work.
A favorite among peers in his field, a 2011 survey named Krugman that year’s favorite living economist under the age of 60. He has also been the recipient of the James Joyce Award, the EPI Distinguished Economist Award, and the Gerald Loeb Award for Commentary.
Krugman continues to write, commentate, and critique for various news outlets, and is widely credited for his gift for masterfully explaining complex economic concepts to the general public.
