Paul Krugman, Nobel Winner

Paul Krugman wins the Nobel prize in economics for his work on trade patterns and location of economic activity.

Krugman is a Princeton University professor and New York Times columnist.   He has been an unrelenting critic of Bush administration policies.  He also writes a blog called The Conscience of a Liberal where he modestly notes today “a funny thing happened to me this morning.”

The 55-year-old economist is the sole winner of the 10 million kronor ($1.4 million) award.   This is only the second time since 2000 that a single laureate won the prize, which is typically shared by two or three researchers.

Below you can watch an exchange between Krugman and MSNBC’s Keith Olbermann.
