Lo he venido mencionando desde hace tiempo en varios comentarios. Necesariamente, la crisis actual producirá un debate profundo entre los académicos economistas que podría redefinir objetivos y agendas..... un buen artículo para mantener un archivco de este debate que insisto será importante en el futuro..

Now all of this good work won’t mean anything unless it starts to impact the macro tribe; and countless corridor discussions overhead at this year’s annual meetings of the American Economic Association suggest that, finally, the rest of the profession is paying attention, and they are demanding more of their macro brethren.
Formally elegant but empirically irrelevant macroeconomists had a much harder time getting hired this year. Curriculum committees are also paying attention, looking to see classes that speak to real economic issues. Economists beyond the macro tribe are paying greater attention, and they aren’t willing to support the intellectually insolvent.
