I tried to search on itulip but the search function is broken as far as i can tell. Should I waste my time with this circa 1994 Paul Ormerod's classic?
Thanks!

My roommate in college read it and never even finished it. I would say no.

Use the advanced search function. Put "death of economics" into the search field

Turns up the current thread and this one (http://itulip.com/forums/showthread.php?t=580&highlight=death+of+economics).

FRED, is there any guide defining entry of search terms, like Help?

I wish that putting a phrase in quotes, such as "death of economics" would only return search results containing that entire phrase (or at least have the option to limit the search in this manner). In this case there were few results so it wasn't too hard to find it, but click the link in FRED's post and note that every of in the post is highlighted in red. Lots of "false positives".
