From the Wikipedia article, I find that Michel Hudson has good track record with forecasts like this " His May 2006 Harper's cover story, “The New Road to Serfdom: An illustrated guide to the coming real estate collapse,” was the first major national article forecasting - in precise chart form - the bursting of the real estate bubble and its consequences for homeowners and state and local government solvency." and his two interviews on Piketty are among the most comprehensive I have seen. Yet there is no mention of him in most of the posts linked to in Mark Thoma's Economist's View (except by Yves Smith). There are links to reviews by students and others, some of whom have clearly not read the book. Noah Smith courageously pointed out one such blog. But the trend continues; here is a positive review with lots of links to other reviews but no mention of Michael Hudson.
