Does Michael Mandel derserve a wedgie?
That is at least what Mandel asks us in his recent post where he attempts to round up the comments and discussion on the debate on intangibles, dark matter, and savings.
"I've just published an article in BW which rounds up a lot of comments about my cover story, Unmasking the Economy, including one person who thinks that I deserve a wedgie (someone else thought I deserved an atomic wedgie, but we won't go there). I'd be interested in hearing what people think."
(From the article)
"The story has provoked passionate, ongoing discussions on BusinessWeek Online; on my blog, Economics Unbound; and on other economics sites. When I printed out all the online comments and posts having to do with the cover, I ended up with a stack of about 200 pages, almost a small book."
