How to win friends and (possibly) influence mainstream economists
In the paper "Conversation or Monologue: On Advising Heterodox Economists," we are taken to task by MatÃas Vernengo on a number of issues made in Colander, Holt, and Rosser (2004b; 2007-8). In this paper, we respond to two central arguments made by Vernengo, and stand by our earlier arguments that (1) heterodox economists hurt themselves by self-labeling themselves as heterodox because mainstream economics no longer is limited to a neoclassical orthodoxy, and that (2) heterodox economists would be well served to spend less time writing about methodology and more time writing about policy issues.
