We are pleased that ‘The Economic Consequences of Mr. Osborne’ (which you can link to here) has attracted attention and comment from a wide range of economic and political analysts.
The Royal Economic Society in its latest (July 2010) newsletter (not yet online, but expected to be soon) refers favourably to our paper in an article that discusses the views of a range of economic dissidents, including the LSE’s Director of the Centre for Economic Performance, John Van Reenen and Joseph Stiglitz. The article notes that while opposition to Osborne’s Budget is growing, “even so, the lack of comment by economists…about its overall macroeconomic impact remains striking.”
The paper has also attracted the attention of American economists and historians, notably Marshall Auerback of the Roosevelt Institute in a piece for the Huffington Post and on the New Deal 2.0 site: ‘The trouble with Tim’s Treasury.’ Also Richard Smith, in a critique of Niall Ferguson’s imperialist economics on ‘Naked Capitalism’, here.
Finally we won high praise from Mehdi Hassan political commentator at the New Statesman, in a piece entitled ‘I am proud to be a deficit denier’.
And I’m proud to be in their company.
