Well yes. If you define all other economists, including Bofinger or Krugman as cargo-cultists, leaving only the members of your sect as economists, then you have majority.
But Krugman is an orthodox economist ~ the New Keynesians add some wrinkles to allow scope for active intervention "in the short run", but once the short run stickness has worked itself out, its the same basic model.
If that long run model is excluded, then all of its users are excluded in terms of their conclusions drawn from that model, irrespective of how much we may like their political views and their views of things when they do not rely on the falsified mainstream model.
And excluding that single model clearly does not limit the balance to a single model. There are a range of post keynesians, institutionalists, structuralists, a selection among radical political economists, general systems economics, and a number of other approaches not excluded by ruling out the repeatedly falsified long term model of the mainstream as being non-scientific due to its adherence to a repeatedly falsified long run model.
I've been accused of being a Marxist, yet while Harpo's my favourite, it's Groucho I'm always quoting. Odd, that.
