Noah Smith is an economist and assistant professor at Stony Brook University. He is also, clearly, afflicted with some sort of inability to properly research or write an article that treats a well known and respected economic theory with anything approaching tact. The gist of the argument is that Austrian economics is flawed, that the founders are antisemitic, those that follow that school are no better than 9/11 truthers, and in general infested with brain worms. That isn't a crude paraphrasing, that's a fairly accurate summary of an article the editors and Bloomberg let past them.
