Economists on Economics

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?).
