If you’re a regular reader of the Bulletin, you know I’m a economics junkie and my politics run to the more liberal side. So you probably won’t be surprised to learn I’m a fan of recent Nobel prize winning economist Paul Krugman, who also writes a column for the New York Times. I read his last two books (and the re-issue/update of his The Return of Depression Economics and the Crisis of 2008 is on my reading list). Jack Curtin, who appears lately to be hunkered down in his bunker/cabin in the woods doing nothing but blogging, passed along this little gem about Krugman’s vacation in Brugge. According to the Times, Krugman is in Brugge and had a beer dinner yesterday at Den Dyver. Den Dyver has a 3, 4 and 5-course fixed menu available with a beer paired with every course. I love that fac that he opted for the beer, good beer. Hey Draft magazine, I think you just found your next cover celebrity.
