General Economics Education -- Brad DeLong Says Interesting Things

Brad DeLong, economics professor at Berkeley, posts the text of a lunch talk he gave recently on his weblog. He summarizes his interpretation of economic policy (good and bad) over the past 30 years or so and discusses current challenges (he particularly is concerned about the trade deficit). While not particularly relevant to the core content of our class, I thought it was an interesting discussion of the economy. So I pass it along.

As always, you should keep in mind that these represent the opinions of one smart guy. Other smart people disagree with at least some of what he argues (for more on the trade imbalance discussion see Martin Wolf's economist's forum on the FT or DeLong's own discussion).

Update -- Daniel Gross also says interesting things related to golbalization -- specifically about what he referes to as "selective globalization syndrome."
