Economists on Economics
| Peter Klein |
We’ve blogged on some of these papers already (1, 2), but it’s worth mentioning that the April 2007 issue of the American Journal of Economics and Sociology includes a symposium called “Reflections and Self-Reflections on the Economics Profession”:
- “Economists’ Opinions of Economists’ Work” by William L. Davis
- “The Input Relationship Between Co-Authors in Economics: A Production Function Approach” by Marshall H. Medoff
- “Is There a Free-Market Economist in the House? The Policy Views of American Economic Association Members” by Daniel B. Klein and Charlotta Stern
- “What Do Economists Talk About? A Linguistic Analysis of Published Writing in Economic Journals” by Nils Goldschmidt and Benedikt Szmrecsanyi
Good reading for the narcissistic economist (is there another kind?).
