No surprises here

Paul Krugman
You are Paul Krugman! You’re a brilliant economist
with a knack for both making sense of the
current economic situation and exposing the
Bush administration’s lies about it. You
somehow came out as the best anti-war writer on
the Op-Ed staff. Other economists hate your
guts for selling out to the liberals. To hell
with ‘em.

    Safire so it seems, and is Sepp coming to correct me, John ?

    I’m Safire as well. Stupid bloody thing!

    The other day I took a test that concluded I was a Grammar God. Obviously that one was much better designed.

    Kristof the Grammar God…

    I am Krugman. No really, I really AM Krugman.
    Only foolin’.
    Had you goin’ there for a minute, didn’t I?

    ‘Fraid I’m Krugman, too, John. I opted for the lotto numbers and had never heard of that film director, and suspect it was these displays of craven cultural insensitivity that branded me an economist. Unfair, I know. Still, if the NYT it has to be, Krugman is as good as it gets(I prefer his old room-mate, myself).

    Yup, Kruggers too.

    Another Krugman. I too had never heard of the film director. But who is this Krugman? Or, come to that, Safire? They can’t be important if they don’t appear in the Spectator.

    Is this another of those psychic mind reader quizzes that rig the solution so they leave out the card you concentrate on (by leaving out all the cards they offered you to concentrate on)?

    I am reminded of the following old story:

    Boy: “I may not have a million dollars in a trust like Alphonse, and I may not have a beach cottage like Alphonse, and I may not have an E-type Jaguar like Alphonse, but I love you!”

    Girl: “And I love you too, dear, but tell me more about Alphonse.”

    Krugman too. I wanted to be Dowd, dammit.

    Paul Krugman – just goes to show how really out of kilter this thing is.

    Oh god I was Dowd,

    the shame, the shame

    I am Dowd too. How awful. I am much better looking than she is.

    Kristof. Sanctimonious, moi sanctimonious?

    I’m not going to do this because I suspect it may tell me I’m David Brooks.

    I got to be Kristof, for the sole reason that I’m more interested in China than Iraq! (I tested: if it had been Iraq, I’d have been a Krugman). Now I’m puzzled: why isn’t everybody interested in
    China, given it is shaping up to be the world’s next superpower and is likely to overtake the US by the turn of this century, or in 150 years at most?

  15. April 20th, 2004 at 12:52 | #15

    Actually, China isn’t significant to Australia in that respect. For us, it’s a question of which remote uninterested party will set the rules of the game. India, on the other hand, is far more significant. So is our current terrorist etc. situation.
