Well that didn't take long
According to humorist Andy Borowitz, Paul Krugman has wasted no time going Hollywood after getting word of his prize.
Here's an excerpt:
"Mr. Krugman could not be reached for comment and instead referred all questions to his publicist, Sherri Hefstein, whom he hired minutes after winning the Nobel.According to Ms. Hefstein, Mr. Krugman plans to spend the next few months "building his brand" and will be adapting his book, International Economics: Theory and Policy, into a feature film to star George Clooney.
