But here’s the thing: for this kind of article to carry any weight, it has to demonstrate the mendacity or venality of the academics in question — and, ideally, those academics should have a high-profile reputation which deserves to be tarnished.

Steve Keen's Debtwatch Blogging on economics and the ecology are not necessarily economic propositions, but many of those who do it commenced for philanthropic reasons, rather than financial. One of the pleasures of blogging for me has been meeting such people, and one of my favourites is Nicole Foss, who maintains the Automatic Earth site. The following short interview has been posted on the “Economics in Debate” website in The Netherlands. Permanent link to this post (18 words, estimated 4 secs reading time) Last week I visited the students who have started the Post Crash Economics Society at Manchester University, and took part in a debate on the topic of “Should (and could) economics have predicted the economic crisis?”
