If you think New York Times economist Paul Krugman’s op-eds are bad, his Twitter account is even worse. It’s a collection of babble, not the commentary of a Nobel laureate.

The Nobel is an achievement, indicative of some underlying talent (Not counting Obama’s Peace Prize).

But that doesn’t mean someone clever in some absract symbolic area can’t be emotionally flawed and go off the rails outside of his specialized realm. As has happened here.

The Nobel prize is the most prestigious award mostly if not always given to dumbass liberals and terrorists to make them feel like they are intelligent!

I’m not sure if that’s entirely true in STEM disciplines.

Economics is kinda borderline, and can go either way, from insightful to insipid. But, its complicated, sometimes STEM-like, sometimes not.

I would remind everyone that Yassir Arafat was awarded a Nobel prize.

The Econ prize has gone to Hayek friedman stigler buchanan coase
And a fair number of other very solid pro-freedom economists
Lots the other way as well but more balanced than peace or lit prizes.

When I think Nobel, I think of STEM... groundbreaking chem, biochem, medical, or physics. Of course, the Nobel palette is broader.

I put Econ somewhere in between the hard sciences and the bullcrap prizes like Peace and literature.

Some of the Economics awards are for work which helps us appreciate how people interact, in the small and the large. You cited some great examples.
