Economists who should know better getting into a brawl over climate change

October 22, 2009

 

Krugman goes in with a left jab to Levitt who ducks and counters and – a tag to Bauman

very knowledgeable about the issue of climate change

with some pretty poor feints and rounded out with a tired stoush between Bauman and Levitt, before Krugman goes for quick, decisive action with his tag-team partner Weitzman

etc

btw – if you can’t be bothered to read through the arguments, it’s all a fuss about Levitt’s new book in which he apparently makes some pretty strange statements in the climate change chapter.

Anyway, there are a bunch of economists in the blogosphere getting excited, as you can tell.  I’m not sure if it will help sell any of Levitt’s books, however.
