  1. Oh no, those are the empty sentences that I always tell my students to avoid! Those are sentences that could be taken out of one proposal/paper and put into another proposal/paper. They are meaningless because there is no meat to them.

  2. Interesting (and disappointing) that none of them discussed climate change (either mitigation or adaptation) as a priority for the field. A bit surprised that young mainstream economists don’t consider it relevant.

  3. Man, that was bleak reading (Young-ish top economists). Only one raised the status of the rationality postulate. I’d look elsewhere for a future for the field – excluding path-dependent tinkering.
