Don't be confused. Krugman do not understand bitcoin, but
Krugman think that terrorism and riots are good, that the

so I think is it fairly secure to ignore him.
I'm not 100% convinced by Krugman in many cases, but I'd say
you'd have to be pretty confident in your own economics
knowledge and intellect to dismiss him entirely, considering
his standing among his - almost by definition also very
knowledgable and intelligent - peers.
That's a false dichotomy. I'm certainly not confident in my
economics. But I'm confident that betting against Krugman is way
safer than the reverse.
Andrei, Walter, if you need help to navigate the bitcoin
ecosystem, you can reach me, I can help.
I agree, bitcoin would be a good donation mechanism to support.
My offer still holds.
