I’m not often in agreement with Paul Krugman, the econo-columnist for the NYT mothership.  Especially when he pontificates outside the field where he holds his laureate, he can sound like an erudite Britney Spears, holding forth on ‘world peace, you know’. 


But that was yesterday.  Today he was spot on.


Here’s the pull quote:


[M]y sense is that policy makers are still mainly about rearranging the boxes on the bank supervisory chart.  They’re not at all ready to do what needs to be done – which is to make banking boring again.”  LINK: http://www.nytimes.com/2009/04/10/opinion/10krugman.html?_r=1&ref=todayspaper .


New York Times, Section A, page 23, Friday, April 10, 2009.


Kudos and amen to that....
