That is Paul Krugman. Paul Robin Krugman is an American economist, Professor of Economics and International Affairs at the Woodrow Wilson School of Public and International Affairs at Princeton University. He is a classic 'everyone should have equal outcomes regardless of ability or performance' who would love to see 'wealth equalization' for everyone except rich liberals
