When Magazines Have Zero Impact

Paul Krugman flagged this cover of Barron's that Joe Wiesenthal called preposterous, and it is:

I, at first, found this deeply disturbing, in spite of the reassurances of Krugman and Weisenthal. Then I remembered this from last August at the height of the campaign:

Niall Ferguson is a professor at Harvard University, a senior research fellow at Oxford, and a senior fellow of the Hoover Institution, Stanford University. His specialty is economic history. I don't have to characterize his analytical skills, but I could critique his clout.

He has none. Last time I looked Barack hasn't hit the road, except to promote the ideas and policy goals of his second term. As for Barron's, if wishes were Trojan horses, blah, blah, blah.
