- What went wrong with economics Jul 16th 2009 from the Economist.
- Why I didn't go medieval on Krugman, and other book newsSept 10, 2009 in Time.com
- Hoisted from the archives – my old post on Freshwater and Saltwater macroeconomic theorySept 16th, 2009 posted in the TPM reader blogs by John Hempton.
The articles are all quite good, and each takes a mildly different look at the issues so reading them all helps in understanding what has been happening to us. My earlier blog can be found at The US economy is surprisingly dysfunctional. . It contains links to other writings, as do many of the articles in the list above.
One important point to remember, though. Even though the economists got some important points wrong, the politicians have been consistently much worse and should not be trusted.
