Taking Names

Mankiw takes names.

From the outside, this seems so ... high school.

It's one thing if the physicists of the world come out with a statement, or the Academy of the Sciences, etc.

But for economics, which so few see as a 'hard science', this looks like an unwanted politicization of the profession (or even a Monica Goodling, Federlist Society, "hire list").

Yes, others do it too.

I'm sure opinions will differ on this opinion.
