For those of you who haven't heard, there's a drive at thepoint.org to try and shame Paul Krugman into debating Robert P Murphy.If Krugman accepts the debate, the money will be donated to a food bank in NYC. If he doesn't accept, no one's accounts ever get charged.

Paul Krugman is a NYT columnist who has defended massive government bailouts to wall street and the politically connected banks. He provides the intellectual backing for bigger, more intrusive government. http://krugman.blogs.nytimes.com...

Murphy is a free market economist from the Austrian School of economics. Whether you agree with the free market or not, Murphy is well equipped to tackle Krugman's arguments. http://mises.org... And let's face it, even if free markets have a lot of problems, they're a whole lot better than what the government's replaced them with!

This debate is a lose-lose for Krugman. If he accepts, the mass Krugman audience will AT LEAST be exposed to an economic theory of smaller government and sounder currency. There's also a good chance Murphy will beat Krugman.

If he ignores the challenge, Krugman will have to explain on his blog why it isn't worth an hour of his time to get $100,000 donated to feed poor people.

So donate. Even $5. It won't be taken from your account unless Krugman accepts. (It's tax deductible anyway). Tell your friends, make it your facebook status. Krugman is the intellectual rally point of the hard left, and we have a good chance to bring him down.

Fix'd. Already donated. Let's get this party started.
