International economy according to Paul Krugman

Detested or adulated, Paul Krugman’s work leaves no-one indifferent. For over two decades, the atypical Princeton professor cannot be ignored in either economic analysis or in domestic policy. The pioneer of the « New international trade », that emphasized strategic trade issues, he has changed his mind to become a strong defender of the superiority of free-trade. After his distinguished academic work, Paul Krugman decided to take on a series of pop theories, a series of false popular beliefs that have made their way into policy debates as though they were correct. For example, contrary to popular belief, Krugman argues that globalization is not the cause of problems, solution would be essentially found inside American economy. – Summary AFRI-2004
