    Peter Schiff suggests that Paul Krugman should return his Nobel Prize and challenges him to a debate "anytime, anyplace."

    I've provided the video. Peter Schiff takes issue with Krugman's recent column on China and dismantles it in the video.

    Op-Ed Columnist - Taking On China and Its Currency - NYTimes.com

    He says because of the foolish nature of this column Krugman should return his Nobel Prize, and challenges Krugman to a debate over the issue.

    Total nonsense! Schiff and Krugman, two Jews who make the world react to nonsense.

    As I tell everybody, it is all for entertainment value. Both of those men do a good job of entertaining. Other than that, they fuel controversy, Nothing to get "up about."

    Yes, accurately predicting our current downturn years before it happened was all for entertainment.

    I'd pay the price for a pay-per view.

    I'll take Schiff and give odds.

    Schiff has his problems he ignores the need to hedge and demographic shifts in spending patterns. Krugman on the other hand took David Ricardo's idea of comparative advantage and combined it with David Ricardo's explicit idea of economies of scale and his implicit idea of economies of scope to win the Nobel prize in economics. Now that's creativity.
