Paul Krugman examines Republican values with 'The Conscience Of A Liberal'
The star of stage and screen, and ever-inquisitive bestselling author Alan Alda (Things I Overheard While Talking To Myself; Random House, September, 2007) played leading man to an author panel that included Valerie Plame Wilson and Russell Simmons, introducing bestselling author and New York Times columnist Paul Krugman to an enthusiastic audience of booksellers at BookExpo America 2007. One of the leading voices for liberal values, Krugman contrasted his philosophy, described in his new book The Conscience Of A Liberal (W.W. Norton; October, 2007), with the speech that made Ronald Reagan famous. After tracking the roots of the Republican backlash against liberalism of the 1950's and 1960's, Krugman closed his remarks with hopes for the future of liberalism in America. Later, Krugman autographed The Conscience Of A Liberal at his publisher's convention floor booth and gave us a book report.
