Scholarly Comments on Academic Economics

Daniel Klein on Groupthink in Academia

Dan Klein of George Mason University recently spoke with EconTalk host Russ Roberts on truth in economics, bias, and groupthink in academic life. Along the way they discussed the Food and Drug Administration (and the drug approval process), the culture of academic life and the roles of empirical evidence and prediction markets in adjudicating academic disagreement.

Klein also co-wrote an article on groupthink for The Independent Review.
