Then, my experience as a TV war vet: I don't have flashbacks -- I have reruns. And my guest is Nobel Prize-winning economist and New York Times columnist Paul Krugman. Well, if he knows so much about money, why's he working for a newspaper? A broken clock is right twice a day, so go out and get yourself 720 clocks. This is The Colbert Report.
