Buy Paul Krugman Some Shamanic Music


Jeff Bercovici at Portfolio bravely e-mailed Paul Krugman to find out if the Amazon wish list under his name — which requests several recordings of shamanic music and not one but three kinds of trundle beds — was his, and the Nobel Prize–winning economist confirmed that it was. With this caveat: “My wife, in addition to doing economics, teaches yoga; hence the music.” We assume that Gardening at the Dragon’s Gate and Life at Quarr Abbey must be Mrs. Krugman’s too, in which case … Holy Ren Faire. Did she marry him because he was so elfin? [Amazon via Mixed Media/Portfolio]
