Mankiw's a smart guy, but he's also very much a Republican:

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/N._Gregory_Mankiw

He served under Bush, and as an advisor to Romney. I'm not saying there's something wrong with Republicans, just that at times he tends to be a bit of a "party man".

Lately, his writing has taken a turn that's more along the lines of "sniping at Obama and company", rather than writing anything particularly interesting... sort of like Krugman with Bush.

Anyway, all very much off topic...
