Greg Mankiw Jumps the Shark

by Ken Houghton

More in sorrow than in anger, I note that Greg Mankiw has read David Brooks's column of a few days ago. His conclusion:
While not quite as magical as the story of Harry, Ron, and Hermione, the Brooks piece is well worth reading. It is far more informed by cutting-edge economic research than most things you find on the op-ed pages.

I await Brad DeLong's reaction. Now, back to the Battle of Hogwarts.

UPDATE: Lawrance G. Lux joins the previous barrage of Brooks-destruction, suggesting studies that could be done. Is that the "cutting-edge economic research" of Mankiw's imagination? If so, some sources would have been appropriate.

UPDATE II: DeLong delivers.
