Krugman is a prize winning economist! And you are not!

So who are we supposed to believe? You or him?

You; a paid poster working for the Kremlin, spreading propaganda all over the net!

I doubt you have ever read any of his books, and chose to remain an idiot!

Do you think your Momma would approve of the HATE you write?

 

So, I should be interested in reading this Academic Socialist malcontent...?

 

Took both Micro and Macro Economics in school - this myopic idiot wasn't in any of'em.

Fascinating...

  No work boots?

  Oh wait.

  You're a retired old guy.

 Cross trainers are for cross dressers.

 Are your cross trainers equipped with the velcro instead of laces too?

 

Do I look like I need velcro...?

typically they last 9 months to a year. I beat them up pretty good between being active with the kids every day, working on the house/yard/fence, and an occasional hike.

Krugman's early stuff (which dealt in International Trade not politics) is good stuff. However, he has since devolved into a mouthpiece with nothing interesting/insightful to say.

How long do you think Trump's tenni-runners last?

 

Ha!

 

That's for true.

 

But at least he's out there... which is good on him.

 

Lots just stick to golf, and think that it's more than basically a walk in the park.

Kinda like a turd.

 

At that point, not much interested the quality of the meal it was.

 

Ha!

People pay attention to him because of his having won a Nobel Prize and him calling himself an economist. He may have been one in the past but that ship has since sailed. I have a Phd in economics and know what a true economist is and he is little more than an opinionated mouthpiece.

Minimalist shoes.  If you wear them in the gym they'll last 10 years or more, until they literally fall apart, because there isn't any of that plastic foam stuff to collapse, which normally starts after about 3 months with standard exercise shoes.

The "toe shoes" simply have no support to degrade, so you can wear them until they start to disintegrate.  That is many years, if you wear them in the gym only.

 

Plus they're awesome.

He's done plenty that seems to me to be pretty much just shoveling mainstream propaganda.

Look nice for carpet and treadmills. Do they hold up on the road?

 

Also play handball and tennis, so straight running shoes don't work.  Need the cross-trainers.

You should be lauding this rare instance where I have a sense of humor. Anyways, back to business as usual.

Yes... I've noticed that about you... I on the other hand have a particularly Keen sense of humor... That's why I'm able to deal so effectively with the Looney left!

Some can't be helped. Both sides have the types that could be asked 2 +4 = ? and they can't/won't answer the question. I should not take them so seriously and just toy with them like some do.

Minimalist-- but not the completely flat toe shoes --are fine for handball, tennis, about anything but basketball.  The toe shoes come in lots of varieties, some of which are flimsier, good for straight jogging down the road, others built for running up mountains and through streams, whatever you're doing with them.  The fact that you aren't running on a piece of foam means that until the shoes actually fall apart, they're just as good as the day you bought them.  As you start to add support of various types, that support becomes the weak link, and it generally will start to fall apart after about 3 months for a moderate runner who runs 3 or 4 times a week a few miles.  Or even just doing squats or whatever in the gym.  They start to go uneven, and at that point, they are more harm than good.
