Sherwin Rosen Approves a Positive Review of Rosenberg’s Book


Another of Sherwin Rosen’s minor acts of methodological delinquency, this time in his role as co-editor of the Journal of Political Economy, was his asking me to review Alexander Rosenberg’s criticism of the economics profession for drifting further and further into irrelevant mathematical puzzle-solving.  My review was basically favorable to Rosenberg, and my memory is that Rosen was quite content with my review.


The reference to my review is:

"Review of:  Alexander Rosenberg’s Economics–Mathematical Politics or Science of Diminishing Returns?."  Journal of Political Economy 104, no. 3 (June 1996):  655-659.
