Nobel Prize-winning economist Paul Krugman is one of the most recognizable and trusted voices on economics and policy today. Through a regular column in The New York Times, a popular blog and best-selling books, he looks to communicate the basic economics we need to understand public policy.

His new book is “Arguing with Zombies: Economics, Politics and the Fight for a Better Future.” Drawn mainly from his Times column, it covers a wide range of issues, organized thematically and framed in the context of a wider debate, explaining the complexities of health care, housing bubbles, tax reform and Social Security.

Paul Krugman is a recipient of the 2008 Nobel Prize in Economics. He has been a columnist at The New York Times for twenty years and is also a Distinguished Professor at City University of New York.
