  • Howard Reed argues we should rip up textbooks for mainstream economics and start over. (Some of what he says echoes an argument of mine.)
  • I do not think Diane Coyle addresses Reed's points.
  • Cahal Moran argues the problem is economics, not economists.
  • Beatrice Cherrier has some frankly speculative posts on what limitations economists accepted in emphasizing tractability in developing models.
  • Nathan Robinson does not like the word "neoliberalism", but understands there is a point to using it.
  • David Glasner writes about Hayek's introduction of the theory of intertemporal and temporary equilibrium paths into economics. (I have no problem for those who look for Irving Fisher as a precursor of for more-or-less simultaneous discoveries in Sweden.)
