Noah Smith writes, "...An audience of academics wouldn't know an Austrian from a Post-Keynesian." So he creates a presentation organized around the pettiness and cronyism of economists. (His post from last year had some problems. For example, he cannot tell the difference between a Marxist and an anarchist.) If Noah wanted, he could have attended a session in which Geoff Harcourt introduced him to some Post Keynesian ideas. But maybe such knowledge would be of no help to his career.
