Paul Krugman wins the Nobel Prize!

Today’s announcement that Paul Krugman won the Noble Prize in economics, I think, is a very good development for the chances of getting meaningful healthcare reform. Krugman is an outspoken advocate of single payer systems, and for publicly financed systems like Medicare over private insurance. Despite the fact that he won his prize in a completely unrelated field I think that his opinions now will have significantly greater weight than even last week (this seems to be true with many Nobel Prize winners).
