Economist and New York Times op-ed columnist Paul Krugman has won a Nobel Prize, so you know he’s one of the smart guys — they don’t just hand out those prizes for doing nothing.

Benjamin Weingarten of TheBlaze happened to notice Krugman describing this “occupational hazard” in his most recent op-ed piece.

Here’s some wisdom from another smart person.
