Reaction to Rodrik

Thomas Palley has been reading Rodrik's book, One Economics, Many Recipes. Pallay's reaction is better expressed and better thought out than my reactions to some of Rodrik's posts. Palley says, "Most people are incredulous that economists could be so audacious as to enforce one view of economics."

I like that Jesus Felipe shows up in the comments when Rodrik raises the question, on his blog, of the purpose of growth accounting. I think of Felipe's cited work as extending Anwar Shaikh's argument on the humbug production function.
