Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
The problem is that "inside" critics like Krugman and Wren-Lewis never seem to take the obvious logical next step and note that the economists supporting this quackery are charlatans, pseudoscientists, quacks, frauds, and partisan propagandists, and need to go away.

Krugman isn't really an active economist these days, but Wren-Lewis at least must occasionally receive a Mankiw paper for review. Does he bounce it summarily, noting that he cannot recommend publication due to the author being known as a paid liar and therefore requires forensic reconstruction beyond the scope of ordinary peer review before it can be trusted?

If not, then he is a part of the problem.
