Link Harvest: Krugman asks why economists misrepresent work of others

http://krugman.blogs.nytimes.com/2011/12/07/taylor-rules/

In Policyland, nobody reads this stuff. They just cite it. It is extremely easy to lie. And apparently, there are no repercussions in academia for producing work that would get a grad student kicked out of a program -- provided the work is done on commission in one's "consulting" capacity and is not submitted to a "real" journal (feel free to publish in a Law Review or something not considered "real" by your department). It is a gentleman's agreement in the profession that allows the folks who move in Policyland to make a nice living.
