Brad DeLong and Economic Journalism

Posted by: Michael Mandel on January 26

I’m following Brad DeLong’s analysis of economic journalism with great interest. I’m going to write a longer piece soon, but for now suffice to say that I both agree and disagree with him. And every time he writes “Why Oh Why Can’t We Have a Better Press Corps?”, I find myself thinking, “Why Oh Why Can’t We Have a Better Economics Profession?”

Do you dare a bet with me..

Should your logish post on Brad go online..he might put that under "DELONG SMACK DOWN WATCH"
as if its a great glory to be smacked down :-)

Thank you for your interest. This blog is no longer active.
