When America’s joint surgeons were challenged to come up with a list of unnecessary procedures in their field, their selections shared one thing: none significantly impacted their incomes.

Wow 25K a month just to rant against inequality? No wonder he doesn’t make any sense.
The more the Krug gets attention, the more people will pay him. It is all about volume in readers, subscribers, money and influence.
And this isn’t a headline from the Onion? Wow reality is becoming satire.
It says a lot about our elected officials that this is where a disgraced administrator, whose tenure at HHS was marked by complete incompetence, would go…
Democrats last held a Kansas U.S. Senate seat in 1939.
Disgraced administrators = great politicians
After the Obamacare fiasco, it would probably be best if she stepped away for a bit. You don’t want to make her an elected official, look what she did with ObamaCare.

So I guess they didn’t mention all of those feet doctors love to chop off for profit? http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SG56B2et4M8
I’m sure Krugman will redistribute those funds to someone who actually needs them. After all, at a certain point, you’ve made enough money… http://hotair.com/archives/2010/04/29/obama-i-do-think-at-a-certain-point-youve-made-enough-money/
So, it almost sounds to me like the Income Inequality Institute feels that by offering incentives to Krugman, he’ll perform work for them.
Is it the Income Inequality Institute’s job to create income inequality? If so, mission accomplished.
CUNY to Krugman: “I wanted you to have no doubt that we can provide not just a platform for public interventions and a stimulating academic community—especially, as you will know, because of our investments in the study of inequality—but also a relatively comfortable perch.”
I recall a similar anecdote about asking Members of Congress to identify waste. Nobody could think of a thing!
If you ask about waste in their own district or state you will get no answer. But check out the all great and powerful WasteBook from Senator Coburn.
“CUNY intends to pay Krugman $225,000, or $25,000 per month (over two semesters), to “play a modest role in our public events” and “contribute to the build-up” of a new “inequality initiative.”
Yeah, so about that thing where the blames income inequality on Republicans…
