Paul Krugman

BLOOMBERG EXCLUSIVE: Economist Paul Krugman and Republican presidential candidate Ron Paul go head to head on fixing the U.S. economy at 4pm ET today on Bloomberg Television’s “Street Smart.”

Tune in beginning at 3pm ET for Krugman, who will be guest-hosting “Street Smart” until 5pm ET.  On the heels of yesterday’s controversial NYT piece, where Krugman called on Federal Reserve Chairman Ben Bernanke to do more for the U.S. economy, Bloomberg TV anchors Trish Regan and Adam Johnson will ask Krugman to explain exactly how more stimulus will create jobs and put the economy back on the growth track.

 Then at 4pm, Krugman will face the ultimate debate with Ron Paul, who has called for drastic cuts in spending.
