...a Youtube of Paul Krugman at a conference in Spain earlier this year as one of a few invited economists.

After Krugman delivers his remarks, Spanish professor Pedro Schwartz (of the Austrian school) surgically demolishes Krugman's arguments while Krugman, sitting behind him, can't hide his discomfort and displeasure. Then when Krugman does speak again to respond, it's with veiled outrage at having his arguments revealed as foolishness.

Professor Schwartz remains calm and respectful throughout, letting facts and numbers speak for themselves. Krugman, however, can't hide his petulance or thin skin. About the only difference in Krugman's reaction and Obama's is that Krugman refused to shake the victor's hand.

The whole thing is worth watching when you have an hour. If you want just a quick box of popcorn entertainment, fast forward to about 39 minutes.
