Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Very interesting paper. Here are the two studies he is referring to:

The Bretton Woods Project's page presenting Robin Broad's research: "Research, knowledge and the art of"paradigm maintenance" The World Bank's development economics vice-presidency (DEC)"

The World Bank's page presenting the report: "Evaluation of Bank Research", directed by Angus Deaton, Kenneth Rogoff, Abhijit Banerjee and Nora Lustig, and the response by the current Chief Economist, François Bourguignon as well as the responses by the former Chief Economists Nicholas Stern and Joseph Stiglitz.
