Jérémie Cohen-Setton at Bruegel does a great job, as usual, rounding up recent blog posts on a specific topic. This time: a critique of modern macro. Can the models built during the Great Moderation explain what happened after the Great Recession?
I would say that "raising the profile" of the financial sector within macro models helps--but I don't know whether a Copernican revolution is necessary. But, ultimately, we will always (literally, always) have to live with model uncertainty. Noah Smith makes this point well.
