Authors@Google: Paul Krugman

In this Authors@Google session from 2007 with economist Paul Krugman talks about his book “The Conscience of a Liberal”. The book was 24th on the New York Times Best Seller list in November 2007. It is a history of wealth and income gaps in the US in the 20th century.

The book received praise mixed with criticism of partisanship from outlets such as the New York Review of Books, and was criticized by conservative groups and the libertarian Ludwig von Mises Institute, who argued it was overly political and weak on economic content.
