Paul Krugman For Treasury Secretary?


With Tim Geithner set to resign, the U.S. is about to get a new Treasury Secretary.

So, who should it be?

According to some people, it should be Paul Krugman, the Nobel Prize-winning Princeton economist who is also a very popular (and controversial) columnist for the New York Times. There is a petition, started by actor Danny Glover, at Signop.org with nearly 225,ooo supporters as of Tuesday.
