Robert Whaples publishes the summary of the latest available (2007) survey of the views of the economics profession in the US, via a random sample of members of the American Economics Association. As ever, fascinating reading, particularly for its scope - questions deal with things from Walmart to trade to the size of Americans' houses. Professor Whaples's introduction and summary are very well written, and the whole report - it's not overwhelmingly long - is easily read and digested by students. There are a lot of things where economists largely agree, something that sometimes gets lost in translation in the wider culture; certainly many of my students seem to be under the impression that, particularly these days, economists disagree about everything and that there is no consensus, let alone a demonstrably 'correct', view on anything.
