10. One thing Prof Krugman has always done and that's been polite esp. to fellow Profs. The R&R cabal

 

is simply an escrescence on the body of economics. They cheated, Dean Baker called on them to release their data as soon as their paper was published - they refused(wonder why?) - and the M$M ignored any ethical challenges to the R&R effort and instead pimped it at every opportunity. Baker was correct; Krugman answered later adding some historical facts; and R&R, caught, are going apeshit because they know harvard won't do anything to them and their paymasters want something to quote that will divert attention from the failure of these tenured profs.
