 The Debt Wolf at the Door - Council on Foreign Relations
Yet experience over the past 15 years suggests this danger is remote, thanks to the continued strong performance of the U.S. economy; to the breadth and depth of U.S. financial markets, which offer investors safety they won’t find elsewhere; and to the insatiable global demand for the dollar as the world’s principal reserve currency.
Blecker’s study is organized labor’s effort to belatedly inject the foreign debt into current policy debates and to argue for weakening the dollar now, among other things, to effect a soft landing next time the economy dips.
But when other economists have cried wolf too often and too early about the foreign debt, Washington has turned a deaf ear—perhaps understandably, given the lack of immediate economic impact—and Blecker is likely to share the same fate.

Despite the extreme controversy surrounding larger economic issues, there is significant agreement among mainstream economists on the fundamentals of the subject, especially as reflected in microeconomics as opposed to macroeconomics.
Marxist economists, who were more influential a few decades ago, often feel that each era of history obeys its very own set of laws, and that contemporary economics can only be applied to industrialized societies.
One way economists deal with this is to qualify discussions of economic choice by noting that "all else being equal..." referring to moral or social factors that are supposedly held equivalent for all choices that one might make.

Thirty-four percent of the economists surveyed said it was the No. 1 risk to the U.S. economy, up from 26 percent in March.
Top of the list in the summer of 2004 - an issue surely spurred on by President Bush's push for Social Security reform - was the growth of the elderly population and the lack of younger people to support them.
The latest survey shows that after the deficit (23 percent), the longer-term risks are now identified as education (21 percent), growth of the elderly (17 percent), health care (16 percent), energy issues (13 percent) and, finally, competitiveness at 4 percent.

Economists are also aware that even persistent trade imbalances are not necessarily a problem, and certainly that surpluses are not a sure sign of health or deficits one of weakness.
There are model-oriented economists, like Alan Blinder, who also write for a broader audience, and they don't put their equations in their books and articles; but the skeleton of the models that structure their thought is visible under the surface to those who know how to look.
No matter what economists do, we can be sure that ten years from now the talk shows and the op-ed pages will still be full of men and women who regard themselves as experts on the global economy, but do not know or want to know about comparative advantage.

 Ruble, Russian Economy - Johnson's Russia List 2-21-03
Economists say rouble strength is blunting the competitive edge of Russian manufacturers and eroding profit margins of exporters but it could also pave the way for more investment if Russians use their spending power to upgrade old plants.

 ISA | Economists hand Bush laundry list
But the economists caution that the deficit is likely to be a persistent long-term problem and they don't expect the president to have as much success in dealing with the deficit as he will have in addressing other economic issues.
In the survey, the economists received a list of eight major economic problems facing Bush as he begins his second term and their task was to prioritize the list—sorting it to show which issues should get the most attention.

 Cato News Release - May 11, 2005
WASHINGTON -- More than four hundred-and-fifty of America's top economists, including Nobel laureates Milton Friedman, Robert Lucas, Robert Mundell, Edward Prescott and Vernon Smith, are calling for the nation's troubled Social Security system to be reformed by giving workers the option of shifting all or part of their payroll taxes into privately invested accounts.
In ads sponsored by the Cato Institute in tomorrow's Roll Call newspaper and The Washington Times, the economists argue that America's Social Security system is facing a financial crisis because of its flawed pay-as-you-go structure.
