Paul Krugman and Ruchir Sharma--Foreign Policy Global Thinkers 2012


Paul Krugman, the Nobel Prize-winning economist and author, most recently, of End This Depression Now!, and Ruchir Sharma, head of emerging markets at Morgan Stanley and author of Breakout Nations: In Pursuit of the Next Economic Miracles, are named by Foreign Policy Magazine as Top 100 Global Thinkers of 2012. The magazine's December cover story lauds Paul Krugman for "wielding his acid pen against austerity" and for "his insistence on providing help for struggling Amerian families…a welcome antitode to the Washington establishment's relentless focus on budget cuts." The story praises Ruchir Sharma for his "smart geoeconomic insights--like his riff on how overpriced cocktails in Rio could be a sign of green shoots in Detroit" and cites his "two decades of traveling the world to seek out ground truth for himself."
