Can anybody explain to me what the usually-sharp Peter Gourevitch is doing here: http://www.washingtonpost.com/blogs/monkey-cage/wp/2015/09/30/this-explains-whats-wrong-with-paul-krugmans-explanation-for-how-the-fed-sets-policy/?
He seems to think--roughly 1000% wrongly--that Janet Yellen and Stan Fischer want spending cuts and balanced budgets.
He seems to think that interest groups seeking higher interest rates blocked Larry Summers's Fed Chair nomination in 2013.
He goes on about how political scientists "might disagree", "would extend the analysis", and "might highlight other mechanisms". And he does so without ever, you know, ever saying how they disagree, what the disagreement is, what the extended analysis actually says, or highlighting actual mechanisms...
