The state of economic debate

A good writeup from Sloped Curve of some of the flaws in the debates taking place among leading economics bloggers.

It's followed by some suggestions about how to structure the US mortgage market which are not so compelling, but worth a read anyway. Maybe this is a good structure for an article - lead in with something that's interesting, even gossipy, to get the attention of the reader. Discussion of other bloggers always gets a few points. Then subtly insert your policy recommendation at the end. Bait and switch, I think it's called.
