Paul Krugman has labelled the recent New York blizzard Mayor Michael Bloomberg’s Katrina moment.

In a blog post, Krugman questioned Mayor Bloomberg’s handling of the crisis, and then called it his “Brownie-you’re-doing-a-heck-of-a-job moment.”

Bloomberg has been criticised for his team’s slow movement in the build up to the weather event.

It’s not just the New York Times on Bloomberg’s case, as a groundswell of negative public sentiment is growing around the poor pace of the cleanup.
