The economics profession, the financial crisis, and method

Journal of Economic Methodology 17 (4):419-427 (2010)
Abstract
In 2007?2008, the world economy came perilously close to a systemic failure in which a financial system collapse almost undermined the entire world economy as we know it. These events have led some to fault the economics profession for its failure to predict the crisis, and to ask whether the crisis will lead the economics profession to change its ways. In this paper, I will discuss these two issues, and then turn to some suggestions for institutional changes in the economics profession that might lead to better outcomes in the future.
