Ken Parish has picked up on the posts by Gary Sauer-Thompson and me on Paul Krugman's "two cultures" account of the conflict between humanities scholarship and economics. He footnotes the listings as a "challenge for John Quiggin, Jason Soon et al". So far the gauntlet hasn't been taken up so I've been spared the necessity of writing one of those weaselling "What I really intended to say was ..." posts on the issue. Still the time may yet come.
By the way, I thought it was very kind of Ken to volunteer his services as second for Gary and myself in this affair. It shows remarkable gallantry.
