Niall Ferguson fired back at Paul Krugman on Bloomberg TV on Tuesday while defending his Newsweek cover story, which claimed health care reform will increase the deficit.

Krugman, a Nobel Prize-winning Princeton economics professor, questioned the accuracy of the Newsweek story, writing in a New York Times blog post on Sunday that Ferguson, a Harvard history professor, had misrepresented a Congressional Budget Office report about health care reform in an "unethical" way. While Ferguson cited the report to claim that President Obama's health care law will cost a net $1.2 trillion over the next 10 years, Krugman pointed out that the CBO's report actually concluded that health care reform will reduce the deficit, not increase it.
