Daron Acemoglu has written an essay on the financial crisis and what it means for economics. Always important to read what he says. Comments will appear later.
Simon Johnson talked about the financial crisis in his Presidential Address to ACES in San Francisco. Here he comments on Acemoglu's paper. Johnson's paper will appear in Comparative Economic Studies. This address is a very important event, especially as I gave the first Presidential Address to ACES.
