Surowiecki asks "what is to be done"

This post on Brad DeLong's cite is remarkable not because of anything Brad wrote, but because James Surowiecki appears (repeatedly) in the comments thread. Once upon a time, many years ago, Slate had an excellent economics and business section, with Surowiecki and Krugman writing fantastic articles on money and business. Krugman lost his mind, and Surowiecki moved his continually excellent column to the New Yorker, where it either stands out or languishes (depending on your point of view) between deeply personal and long articles about other peoples' house pets.

I have no idea if this James Surowiecki is the same one as the Slate/New Yorker one, but the clarity of writing and general thoughtfulness suggests that it is. I recommend skipping the post and getting straight to the comments.
