Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
First of all, it's "Lucas," not Lucas.  Second of all, he hasn't been anything resembling "mainstream" for a long-ass time.  Shit, Lucas has become a laughing stock by the time I was an undergrad -- and at a university notoriously infused with Koch money at that.

Greg Mankiw is a half-decent mathematician masquerading as a serious economist.

Once again, "mainstream" isn't whatever gibberish you read on some idiot blog.  If you want mainstream, read Krugman and you "heterodox" friend, Stiglitz.  Both of whom are more representative of the mainstream that these people you keep bringing up.

Stiglitz's consumption function was the foundation for both his and Krugman's Nobels.  Solow's growth model is literally the first model they teach you in every Macro 201 class.  We in "not even wrong" territory here.

As for the Hillary/Bill/conspiracy theory on the DNC and Bernie bit -- now you want her to listen to Bill, the Unholy God of "Neoliberalism".  Helpfully demonstrating what a bunch of horseshit the whole conflict was the whole time.

Complete gibberish.

Be nice to America. Or we'll bring democracy to your country.
