Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Stiglitz and Solow are not criticizing the mainstream academic school of thought. They are calling out the overtly partisan hacks that even other mainstream scholars are uncomfortable with.

This puts Stiglitz and Solow outside the mainstream culture of economics, which doesn't police partisan hackery as long as it is politically correct partisan hackery. But it does nothing to put them outside the mainstream research tradition.
