(p.195) Chapter 25 Comment on Barbera
The Economists' Voice 2.0

Casey B. Mulligan

Columbia University Press

This chapter presents Casey B. Mulligan’s response to Robert Barbera’s commentary entitled “If It Were a Fight, They Would Have Stopped It in December of 2008” in Chapter 24. Mulligan claims that Barbera appears to disagree with his article and to deeply dislike modern macroeconomics. Barbera’s view is not based on a reading of the academic literature that is being debated, nor even a balanced examination of his own portfolio of economic research and forecasting but, rather, on just two observations: (1) that Mulligan and some of the other modern macroeconomists do not think that an interruption of activity in the banking sector (where Mr. Barbera works) is all that critical to the rest of the economy, and (2) that Mulligan made one incorrect forecast in October 2008.
