For all of you who are dying to know more about John Quiggin's Zombie Economics, here is a review essay I have written. This is somewhat formal and un-bloggy, complete with references, and is not the Journal of Economic Literature review on Quiggin's book that I wrote, which is quite short. I do more in this essay than just critique Zombie Economics. It is in part a defense of contemporary economics, in response to various rabble-rousing, including Paul Krugman's 2009 NYT piece, or this more recent critique. There are also some financial crisis ideas in there.
If you find errors, please let me know, and I'm interested in your comments.
