Pledge money now to see Paul Krugman debate a real Economist

October 22nd, 2010

From Lew Rockwell’s blog:

Many Austrians have tried to get Krugman to debate business cycle theory. Hes too busy and too sophisticated to debate an Austrian, of course. Until now.

Economist Robert Murphy has come up with a clever way to make this happen. Through a website called The Point, people can pledge an amount of money to make the debate happen. Not one cent is charged to them until it does happen. The money will go to a charity for the hungry in New York. So if it hits, say, $100,000, Krugman will have to explain why getting $100,000 to New Yorks hungry isnt worth one hour of his time. Brilliant. Ive already pledged. Bob is up to around $5,000 already.

Heres his video promoting it (it looks like the law school one from the other day, but its a different video).

We have $25 down on that particular pledge.
