 注:这里转贴英国经济学大家霍奇逊编辑的有关西方经济学人对埃莉诺获诺贝尔经济学家的评价,由此可见这一代经济学子的无知。

这些评论来自经济学界的博士生、博士后以及青年学者经常光顾的网站上的一个博文:

 不用说,这些评论都是匿名的,除了极少数外,这些评论充斥了无知、狭隘以及性别歧视,所以,霍奇逊问道:这些人能够代表下一代并引领经济学的发展吗?

 

主要评论摘编如下:

 

Nobel BULLSHIT!!!!

Who the fuck are these idiots? Never heard of them ... ever. What kind of bullshit is this? This year is the worst.

 

Seriously! Are you putting these two on par with Hansen, Fama, Tirole, etc.? I don't understand this year's pick. Really bad. I agree

 

Well, they had to give it to a woman at some point. Why not just throw a dart at a board.

 

I never saw their work on any reading list during PhD.

 

A stupid Nobel pick to accompany a stupid job market this year. Our field is falling apart.

 

Never heard of Ostrom in my life. Lame.

 

All you guys need to READ MORE. The market rewards multidisciplinary work more and more.

 

This girl seems to be a political scientist. I dont think she has published original research

in any major economics journal.

 

Wow, that was stupid. There were rumors that they were under pressure, since a woman has never got the award.

 

Multidisciplinary?? Other disciplines are all rubblish [sic]. Why let them conteminate [sic] our purity?

 

Economics is superior. Don't let political science conteminate [sic] us!

 

She has an EJ, two JEPs, two JEBOs and a couple more of that sort. Enough for tenure between the top 100 and 200. There are scores of women with much better records and much better known contributions to economics. Of course, polsci doesn't have its own award, so perhaps she merits the Nobel for her contributions there.

 

why don't you read about her contribution instead of just counting publications and talk about rankings. These are imperfect measures of impact or quality of published work.

 

The fact that most of us have not heard about her says enough about her contributions.

 

Sorry. The fact that NONE of us have not [sic] heard about her says enough about her contributions.

 

This is the problem with Affirmative Action: last time a woman tried to go to the moon, the Challenger exploded 73 seconds after the launch. now, this is the end of Economics.

 

Seriously, this is a sensible and insightful award to an original and careful researcher whose work is widely cited precisely because it is original. To those of you who have never heard of her: you might start by asking why your lazy micro teachers inflict a narrow range of material on you that typically consists of selected papers from their own back catalog, the work of their buddies and one or two classics they themselves were forced to swallow in grad school. To those of who complaining that's she's never published in your favorite 'top journal': yes, despite that shameful handicap she is one of the most cited social scientists around, by economists and non-economists alike.

You've never heard of Oliver Williamson? Then you need to march into your chair's office and demand they take back your PhD as you're an ignorant loser.

 

These postings really do show the narrow training of many economists. In fact, economics departments in most universities are highly isolated places in the larger world of social science. To trash a scholar as serious and insightful as Ostrom is a shame.

 

What if the commons is actually an important field of study and the fact that most of us never read anything about it during graduate school is something that economic theory lecturers should take into account when formulating their syllabi?

 

maybe, but she still got it only because she's a woman.

 

[and much more ...]
