Odd ...

Donald Luskin pointed out this Grotesque book jacket for the British edition of Paul Krugman's The Great Unravelling. (With the joke being that Krugman himself was part of the Enron scandal, something a Brit might not be aware of). But if you go to Amazon.uk, you see nothing of the sort....One wonders if that cover was a hoax...it's hard to imagine even the most anti-American publisher going for something so tawdry.

* Here's more on the Cover flap. Apparently that really is the bookjacket. Unbelievable.

By the way, if your memory should need refreshing, Enron paid Krugman 50k a year to do essentially nothing. And, purely by coincidence, Krugman wrote glowing articles about Enron, of the "I've seen the future, and it works" variety. So he's just the guy to to harshly criticize supposed corruption in the Bush Administration...
