Paul was born into a Jewish family, and is of Belarussian and Polish ancestry as his paternal grandparents immigrated to United States in the 1920s. Although born in Albany, he grew up in Merrick, Nassau County, and attended John F. Kennedy High School where he became interested in economics after reading Isaac Asimov’s “Foundation” novels. Krugman decided to study economics at Yale University, and graduated with a BA summa cum laude in 1974, later finishing his PhD at Massachusetts Institute of Technology. In the late ‘70s, he began working on international trade and a new model of monopolistic competition within it. His contributions on developing and popularising work on the new theory of trade were influential, as he explained the importance of consumers’ preference for diversity and the explanation of the higher cost goods survival, becoming an area of his expertise, and the basis for his Nobel Prize in 2008.

This New Trade Theory of his evolved into New Economic Geography, and in 1991 he published his seminal paper on the topic which became one of the most cited in the field of economics. Paul worked as a professor at various prestigious universities, including MIT, Princeton University and the London School of Economics, and during the Presidency of Ronald Reagan, spent a year on the Council of Economic Advisers, all contributing significantly to his net worth.

The columns Krugman wrote in the “Slate” and “New York Times” made him popular among the public, as he was highly critical of the Bush administration. In general, Krugman disapproved of the policy of cutting taxes for the rich, which he contended led to budget deficits. Apart from this, Paul was known as the critic of the Iraq war, and the growing income inequality in America.

He further became famous for his work on macroeconomics and fiscal policy, and after studying the Japanese and Asian crisis, he published the book “The Return of Depression Economics”. Throughout his career, Krugman became known for his general direct and open criticism of politicians, and of other economists.

When it comes to his private life, Paul has married twice, firstly to designer Robin L. Bergman, and is now married to academic economist Robin Wells. He identifies himself as a sci-fi geek and describes himself as a bit of a loner with a shy personality.

1[observation, August 2016] By now, it's obvious to everyone with open eyes that Donald Trump is an ignorant, wildly dishonest, erratic, immature, bullying egomaniac. On the other hand, he's a terrible person.
2[observation, 1998] The growth of the Internet will slow dramatically [as it] becomes apparent that most people have nothing to say to each other.
