The New York Times, even outside of their editorial pages, seems to think their readership should know about the non-mainstream economists I generally like:
- 11 September 2013 profile of Wynne Godley.
- 18 July 2013 article on Steve Keen and how his work builds on Hyman Minsky.
- 5 July 2013 profile of Warren Mosler.
- 4 March 2009 article on the difficulties heterodox economists face in academia.
- 23 April 2008 profile of George Soros.
- 11 July 2007 article on heterodox economics.
I predict that this profile of Godley will get a more positive response from Post Keynesians and advocates of endogenous money than their profile of Warren Mosler did. One caveat: I think Godley was more about using his stock-flow consistent modeling to identify unsustainable trends, than to quantitatively predict the course of, say, Gross Domestic Product (GDP) over the next n quarters. (He also accepted the conclusions of the Cambridge Capital Controversy.)
