Paul Krugman Admits Being Poe, Quits Job

NYT columnist says he’s not a real economist, but he plays one in the newspaper.

Walter Crockpot
Daily Bungle

Nobel prize-winning economist Paul Krugman has stepped down from his 15-year position writing for the New York Times, but not without revealing his biggest secret: he’s not really an economist.

Krugman, who coined the term “very serious people” to mock pundits who are considered respectable despite holding mistaken beliefs, penned his final column last week in which he confessed to being one of those “very serious people,” revealing that his position as an economist was merely a ruse,

In reality, he never received a Nobel Peace Prize in economics. He never taught economics at Princeton. He never even studied economics in college.

Instead, he had originally graduated Clown College with the intention of breaking out into the entertainment business, but felt that his comedic talents would be squandered working in traveling circuses and carnivals.

So upon graduation, Krugman decided to pull off what he considered to be the biggest prank of them all by passing himself off as a respectable economist while writing the most ludicrous statements.

“When I pitched this proposal to the editor, he told me it was the most asinine thing he had ever heard, and then he shoved the contract in my face and had me sign it,” Krugman said during an in-person interview.

Since making his debut in the NYT op-ed pages in 2000, Krugman has penned blatantly absurd opinions on economics and politics which managed to come across as legit commentary to the general public.

One of his most infamous bogus statements was made following the wake of the dot-com bubble, when he suggested that the government remedy the situation by “create a housing bubble to replace the Nasdaq bubble.”

“Here I was suggesting that we replace one financial bubble with another, and I was damn sure that I would be exposed for the fraud that I was, yet I managed to fool everyone hook, line, and sinker,” Krugman boasted. “Even Alan Greenspan himself was fooled into using my economic ‘advice’ to justify his reckless money printing, which inevitably led to the greatest recession since the Great Depression. That’s even more hilarious when you consider all of the jobs and houses that were lost because of it!"

Among his other nuggets of dubious economic wisdom, Krugman has claimed that Adolf Hitler ended the Great Depression, the September 11 attacks would help provide economic opportunity, an alien invasion would stimulate the economy, and printing a trillion dollar coin could pay off the national debt.

Perhaps his most damning, if not most ironic, prediction was that concerning the very technology with which he has garnered the most popularity. In 1998, he had written a column predicting that the internet would become no more significant than the fax machine.

“And to think that my supporters read and share my columns on the very medium that I had dismissed over fifteen years ago!” Krugman exclaimed, slapping his knee as he desperately tried to hold back his bouts of laughter. “These idiots will believe anything that I write!”

When Krugman’s views aren’t being contradicted by reality, more often than not, they’re being contradicted by himself.

For example, while he has lauded minimum wage hikes within his columns, arguing that increasing the minimum wage would also increase employment, in his own economics textbook, he admitted that such wage increases would have the opposite effect of decreasing employment.

And though he has been an adamant supporter of immigration reform, claiming that the economy would benefit from more immigrants, in a past column, he admitted that saturating the market with low-skilled migrant workers would only decrease wages for domestic low-skilled workers.

Now that he has ended his career of pretending to be an economist, Krugman plans on living the rest of his days performing in traveling circuses and carnivals.

As to what will become of his loyal followers, Krugman expressed that those who once took his columns at face value will continue to do so even in the light of evidence to the contrary.

“If life experience has taught me anything, it’s that people, especially with economics, will choose to believe what they want to believe even when it doesn’t make any sense,” he said. “Even after L. Ron Hubbard admitted that Scientology was bunk, that hasn’t stopped the increase of ranks among Scientologists.”

We here at the Daily Bungle wish to provide a public service by administering a weekly test for our readers to see how well they can differentiate real news from fake news. This week, we're mixing things up a little: two of these news stories are real, and the rest of them are fake. Can you tell the satire from the real deal?

Republicans Building Gun Range Inside Capitol Building
After sweeping the midterm elections, Republican Mitch McConnell of Kentucky announced today the construction of a 2,000-square-foot gun range in the basement of the Capitol building in Washington, D.C.

Police had someone dress up as Donald Duck so they could write more traffic tickets
It's not every day you see a duck walking the crosswalk, but that's what several drivers in Fort Lee saw last Friday. It was all part of a decoy program to catch drivers who aren't yielding to pedestrians. But some are saying it's not fair and that they were tricked.

Cured Ebola Doc Sneezes at NYC Press Conference
The press conference started out without incident, as scores of medical workers, hospital officials, politicians, and reporters crowded around the cured doc to wish him well as he was released from a NYC hospital. Then it happened. A loud sneeze erupted from the "cured" doc, just as he stepped up to the microphone to address the crowd.

Ku Klux Klan Opens its Doors to Hispanic, Blacks, Jews and Gays
White supremacist organization, the Ku Klux Klan is rebranding as the "new Klan" by trying to increase membership to Jews, black people, gays and those of Hispanic origin.

Chicken Wing Giveaway Nabs Welfare Cheats
A group of 158 government freeloaders found their gooses cooked, when instead of receiving free chicken wings from the USDA, they were arrested and charged with food stamp fraud. It was all part of a Washington DC based FBI sting operation dubbed “Project Wingman,” set up to target welfare cheats and food stamp scammers whose numbers have ballooned during the Obama administration.


And before you ask, yes, it was epic—not as good as Frozen, but a fair tie with Wreck-It Ralph! If you haven’t seen it yet, by all means, do!

Making fun of Congress is a tradition that may very well predate Congress.

Making fun of government has been a thing for as long as government itself has been.

"The people yelling about a police state were curiously absent in 2009. Oh, because they enjoyed it against people of opposite thought."

Funny how that works, don't you think?

I'm not trying to start and argument or anything but if your anti-state wouldn't that pose a problem with god been your sovereign since if god does indeed exist "I'm not claiming he does or doesn't" that would mean there is a heavenly state ?

I have an idea for your next satire www.youtube.com/watch?v=ARufAe… As you can see, the problem of violence against women is rampant. Men must learn that it is never okay to hit a woman, especially not in self defense since that is the most likely reason a man would be violent. The only way to teach men not to be violent is through practice at a young age. Instead of PE, which stimulates boys to learn, we line up all the boys and have women and girl students physically and verbally abuse them. If the boys retaliate, they're sent to juvenile hall for a few years and have to carry the label of "woman beater" for the rest of their academic career. The brilliance of this is that it not only empowers women by teaching them to hurt men, it also squashes male entitlement to things like their own bodily autonomy. I'm certain you could probably think of other "advantages" to such a policy. The best part is that it perfectly promotes feminist equality of empowering women and fighting the patriarchy.

Also, I heard a Florida University is requiring that students share their sexual history or they aren't allowed to join. Florida Atlantic I think.
