Paul Krugman at MIT

Krugman paused, looked down at the podium, then sized up the audience again. “I left a little [space] in my notes here that says, ‘Come up with something optimistic to say at the end,’” he remarked as the audience laughed, “but I don’t have anything.” Call it black humor for the new dark age.

It is really sad when a Noble in economics can not come up with something optimistic in a lecture organised by undergraduates at MIT his alma matter.
