Epstein comments in WSJ on code of ethics

Gerald Epstein

Gerald Epstein, UMass Amherst economics professor and co-director of the Political Economy Research Institute, comments in a story about efforts to have academic economists adopt a code of ethics in response to criticism of ethical lapses in the profession related to the economic crisis in 2008. Epstein says a new disclosure policy adopted by the 1,200-member National Bureau of Economic Research is a good start. (Wall Street Journal, 10/12/11)
