Paul Krugman Is Leaving Princeton For CUNY

Princeton economist and New York Times columnist Paul Krugman is leaving the Ivy League for a post at the City University of New York.

Krugman announced Friday on his blog that he’ll be retiring from Princeton at the end of the academic year in 2015. He will join CUNY’s Graduate Center as a professor in the Ph.D. program in economics and be named a distinguished scholar at the Graduate Center’s Luxembourg Income Study Center.

The columnist wrote that relocating to New York was part of his motivation for the change and that his work at the Times would not be affected.
