Dissent in the ranks

Dissent in the ranks of Milton’s army. Hayes cover

We’re breaking the rules a bit with this week’s TPMCafe Book Club. We’ve assembling a distinguished group of economists to discuss Christopher Hayes’ feature Nation article “Hip Heterodoxy.”

James Galbraith, Tyler Cowen, Max Sawicky, David Warsh, Diane Coyle, Thomas Palley and Paul Krugman will be joining Hayes to discuss his argument that the field of economics is policed by a neoclassical mafia that creates taboos and enforces boundaries.

Blood will be drawn.
