    I just feel like  of all academic disciplines, Economics really is one of the more corrupt ones.

    It really has a deep incestuous relationship with Business and modern corporatism.

    We're talking about top academics that run off to start hedge funds and stuff.

    and HAP (in the Financial Times op-ed) call the methodological makes "defensible" -- so i dont know. i don't really think this will blow up to be too much and I think the top Harvard economists will remain tenured and gainfully employed doing research for the private industry :>

    Deficits don't matter, jobs do.
