The home page of Paul Krugman, Professor of Economics at the Massachussetts Institute of technology, contains links to online articles written by him on various topical issues related to the economy. The largest number of articles at the site hail from Krugman's monthly column "The Dismal Science" in Slate
(discussed in the July 12, 1996 Scout Report
). Recent articles cover issues such as the debate over free trade and the Asian currency crisis. Paul Krugman now also writes a monthly column for Fortune
magazine; in his first article he sets out to debunk the New Economy concept. Other articles at the site primarily address trade issues.
