About the Webinar

Nobel Prize winning economist Paul Krugman of Princeton University has become perhaps the world’s foremost public intellectual through his twice-weekly column in the New York Times editorial section. In his column and NYT blog, Krugman promotes the Keynesian viewpoint and also regularly attacks the Austrian School for its free-market views and for the Austrian business cycle theory. This webinar uses Austrian methodology to critically examine Krugman’s Keynesian statements in his NYT columns and blog posts and to point out why those views are riddled with economic fallacies.


5:30 pm Eastern Time, Friday, August 9.


40–50 minutes of lecture. 30–40 minutes of Q & A.
