First of all, do not listen to John Taylor. He is not being a scientist right now, he is being a politician ... And I think no one should take John Taylor's promotion of B&H's results seriously, since he is part of Team Romney.Via Greg Mankiw comes another post from John Taylor who is still promoting B&H:
In sum, the weak recovery deniers have not made their case.While Taylor does link to Paul Krugman, both he and Mankiw ignore Noah’s post. I guess we could point this out in the comment section of their blogs but guess what – they do not allow comments. Hey – that is their right but would it be too much to ask for them to cite the well written posts on this topic from other economist bloggers such as Noah? Oh wait – as members of Team Romney I guess it would be too much to expect them to engage in an honest debate? Never mind! Update: Noah correctly notes that John Taylor's latest was posted before his excellent post. Note, however, Greg Mankiw's list was posted just today and Greg failed to include Noah's post. So Noah is being very kind and fair to John. We shall see if John follows up and includes Noah's discussion on his blog.
