Kris för Chicagoskolan?

Economist om Cassidys artikel om Chicagoskolan i The New Yorker:
"The author cites some Chicago scholars, like Richard Posner and Raghuram Rajan, who are building on the lessons of the crisis to build a better Chicago approach to macroeconomics. Others in the department appear to be lost. Casey Mulligan has advocated a 'Great Vacation' view of the recession, in which the unwillingness of workers to take jobs has played a significant role in driving up the unemployment rate. John Cochrane is quoted in the New Yorker piece attributing the financial crisis to a speech by President Bush acknowledging that financial markets were in trouble, and not the problems generated by insolvency at the nation's largest banks. It's not very pretty."
