ABSTRACT
In this article, the author discusses the profession of columnist and economist Paul Krugman in the U.S. He comments on the need of students and teachers of economics to carefully read Krugman's work on the theory of trade. He stresses that Krugman's essay on macroeconomics is useful for the economic business. However, he remarks that Krugman ceases to be a public intellectual and becomes more of a partisan ideologue.
