"Did the same man play all these roles? Yes and no. All three roles were informed by Friedman's faith in the classical verities of free-market economics. Moreover, Friedman's effectiveness as a popularizer and propagandist rested in part on his well-deserved reputation as a profound economic theorist. But there's an important difference between the rigor of his work as a professional economist and the looser, sometimes questionable logic of his pronouncements as a public intellectual. While Friedman's theoretical work is universally admired by professional economists, there's much more ambivalence about his policy pronouncements and especially his popularizing. And it must be said that there were some serious questions about his intellectual honesty when he was speaking to the mass public."

Não dá para dizer o mesmo do Krugman? ;-)

O artigo do Krugman não informa sobre o Friedman e, na melhor das hipóteses, desinforma. A reacão do blog do Avolio me parece justificada

Como todo bom comunista, krugman acusa seu adversario de faltas que na verdade sao suas.... por exemplo DESONESTIDADE intelectual.
O exemplo de citar a america latina e desonesto, dizer que paises como a argentina adotaram politicas em direcao ao livre mercado so pode ser piada, ou melhor, desonestidade.

Isso aí poderia ser traduzido assim: "jornalista diletante Krugman lança mais um ataque contra economistas que passaram a vida combatendo o diletantismo"...
