Krugman calls Jim Rogers stupid

This is beyond a joke.  The guy needs to be fired.  Silenced.  Removed from public view.  Hospitalized.  Straight-jacketed.  He is a threat to civilization itself.  To think this madman got a Nobel is beyond Kafka-esque.  It’s a fucking travesty.

It has been really interesting to watch some of the commentary over quantitative easing by the Fed: while people like me see the Fed’s actions as way too timid, there’s a substantial faction out there that sees them as the end of Western civilization. Right now the most popular story on Bloomberg is Jim Rogers saying that Bernanke doesn’t understand economics, that he’s “debasing the currency.”

I’ve seen Rogers in action; he seemed to me to be confused about issues like the difference between assets and liabilities. And please note that inflationistas like Rogers have been wrong about absolutely everything this cycle (and the last cycle, and the cycle before that).

But they have their devotees. And this means that monetary policy, our only real hope at this point, must climb a wall of stupidity.
