What we have here is everyone concentrating on the guys that messed up and ignoring anyone that seemed remotely in the right ball park. Reminds me of this:
SIR – I was surprised that you did not mention the Austrian school of thought. Economists trained in the Austrian framework recognised early on that the recent boom was induced by rampant credit and money creation rather than sustainable economic growth, and correctly predicted the inevitable bust. Why spend so much time focusing on the economists who got it wrong while ignoring those who got it right?
