Technocrat Uprising Lead By Prof. Krugman?

I've long neglected criticizing Prof. Krugman for contrasting bad "very serious people" with awesome "hippies getting punched". Here I think he enters a more virtuous zone -criticizing non or less competent, not data-driven "technocrats" with power (he deems them "crats", with best of breed, more data driven technocrats (he deems them people like Prof. Krugman and Prof. Romer).

So I guess he's becoming more what I wanted before I got around to criticizing him for his unhelpful characterization of non-best of breed technocrats as "very serious people".
