Dr. Paul Krugman and Grover Norquist appear to have an amicable chat just minutes before their verbal confrontation on ABC's "This Week With Christiane Amanpour". The liberal economist Krugman and anti-tax crusader Norquist participated in a roundtable debate on the impact of the debt ceiling battle and whether dysfunction in Washington has reached a new low. Paul Krugman is an Op-Ed columnist for The New York Times and continues as professor of Economics and International Affairs at Princeton University. Norquist is president of a taxpayer advocacy group, Americans for Tax Reform. In photo, Norquist is holding a copy of "We", novel by Yevgeny Zamyatin completed in 1921. "This Week" was taped inside a studio at the Newseum in Washington DC on July 31, 2011. (Photo by Jeff Malet)
