Joe Scarborough, host of the MSNBC "Morning Joe" recently debated Nobel Prize winning economist Paul Krugman on the economic crisis facing the United States during an episode of 'Charlie Rose'. Paul Krugman is one of the most important economists in the world, as his very public writings have consistently used history and data to confront and defeat the austerity ideology that has gripped the world since the global financial crisis began. Paul Krugman didn't pull any punches in the conversation, destroying Joe Scarborough--who was completely unprepared to take on the world's economic heavyweight. Krugman was all substance, Scarborough was all ad hominem attack, repeatedly taking old Krugman quotes out of context--a cheap and favorite trick of his Fox news contemporaries, which is where Scarborough clearly belongs.
