Paul Krugman quotes a fictional character
created by one of America's most left-wing filmmakers to demonize and caricature Wall Street and, by extension, the probable GOP presidential nominee Mitt Romney. No doubt his fans will eat it up. But you don't win arguments with such transparent partisanship.
Note to Krugman: Gordon Gekko is not a real person and he is not running for President of the United States, no matter how much you wish he were.
