I found this amusing. More so because Mankiw is a douche bag. And a great example of how a very "respectable" institution like Harvard can still employ a person who is a deeply biased ideologue (which is totally inconsistent with my definition of "smart"). I encourage a healthy disrespect for academics based solely on where they are employed. After all, history's greatest monster, Milton Friedman, taught a the University of Chicago, where his delusions still poison the air.
