"Memoirs of an Economics Student" (a blog I've linked to on this page) reports the latest in a student-led "anti-Mankiw" effort, this one in the form of a blog.
Of course, it's nothing personal. Mankiw's principles text just happens to be a prominent feature of an orthodoxy that predictably evades any real critical examination of the status quo. As the status quo becomes more and more unacceptable to more and more people, its unsatisfactory nature becomes ever more apparent.
