Meta-economics

Krugman’s big piece on the major conflicts within economics, and how the crisis exposed the depth of the schools’ disagreements, is required reading, of course.

And Matthew Yglesias shows where to look next, with some pointers towards an analysis of the incentives that led so many economists to go so very wrong. It’s worth clicking through to see the Larry Summers ketchup paper that Yglesias links to.

Expect to see more of this “economics of economics” business in the near future.
