Krugman is like a sloppy drunk when it comes to economics or rational thought and Landsburg and Mankiw point this out. Thanks to Don Boudreaux for directing Cafe readers to theses other beautifully written and reasoned rebukes of the drunken non-master.

I can only imagine what Ethan Fisher and Joseph Ivy would have come up with in rebuttal. A glimpse is offered in Evolve, Part 2: Incentives in the conversations between Fisher and Silberman.
