A tale of two Krugmans

Jon Henke at QandO has a great point about Krugman's op-ed yesterday:
And, sadly, that's the problem: Paul Krugman knows full well that opening up markets has a net positive effect on an economy. Indeed, he has made his career out of proving just that point. But, rather than take the opportunity to point out that the US is right to advocate free markets; that the US is right to push the World Bank in a direction more in line with the values of democracy and free markets.....
Jon was exceedingly kind to link to my own entry on this, to which he added,
Krugman has gotten a lot of mileage out of the problems in Central and South America, blaming their economic problems on everything from budget deficits to national debt to free markets. You'd think he could have settled on an answer by now.
