“Neoliberalism can mean many things, but if it means letting markets reign without restrains is always the answer then I’m also against neoliberalism,” Paul Krugman, Nobel Laureate, economist, said in an interview with the Athens-Macedonian News Agency.
The economist and New York Times columnist is in Athens to participate in the 4th Αthens Democracy Forum organised under the auspices of Greek President Prokopis Pavlopoulos.
Krugman found Pavlopoulos' speech interesting. “A very interesting speech, there were a few themes in there that are dear to my own heart. It’s good to see someone talking about the necessity of reining in ... we’re from market economies but there need to be some ground rules. I was happy to hear it.”
