Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
It's a conference proceeding, not a paper. You can get any old shit published in conference proceedings.

You can also find lots of good stuff in (some) conference proceedings, of course. But conference proceeding peer review always has a substantial risk of being crony review, unless you personally know and can vouch for the integrity of the conference steering committee.

Ah, that makes it somewhat better. I was fooled by the reporting -Krugman and O'Brien called it a paper, and I really did not want to give them additional traffic, not from this drivel, so I didn't check.
