Axel Leijonhufvud in this short paper talk about the four giant economists.
The short answer to the question in the title
that your President has set for me is: None of the Above. But there are things of relevance to be learned from each one of them, so I will not stop there. I will first briefly discuss the views of these giants of the profession and then also try to explain how my own diagnosis of our troubles differs from theirs.
Would have loved to expand more on this post. But have no time. So do read the paper for mor details.
