Summers, 1991: 146) On the aeroplane returning home from the annual meeting of the American Economics Association, I asked the adjacent passenger, an economist also returning home, to explain the paper he had presented at the meeting. He proceeded to lay out a simple and ingenious numerical example. Within five minutes I understood the idea and admired him for it. I asked him what the rest of the paper was about. He answered that it was devoted to developing a formal model based on the core idea.

Others play it cynically because following certain procedures, such as ‘sticking in the maths,’ is necessary to publish in good 44 d o e c o n o m i s t s b e l i e v e i n w h at t h e y a r e d o i n g ? journals, and thus to earn tenure. Probably quite a number of the already tenured have responded by, more or less, giving up on research. Certainly not to all, perhaps not even to most, but to many economists, the rules and conventions that currently determine what is considered good research have become a hollow ideology.

I am afraid that I have not done the research necessary 57 a p l e a t o e c o n o m i s t s w h o fav o u r l i b e rt y to ascertain the scope of that medium. My suspicions are, however, rather discouraging. Everyman is probably not a keen seeker after such material on policy issues; in the past a relatively passive or habitual reader of a serious newspaper could be reached through its pages. Websites are likely to be dominated by the relatively obsessive and to offer little scope for the rewards of either general recognition or influence.
