Back in 2008 Nat Keohane, the director of Economic Policy and Analyst at the Environmental Defense Fun put out an article on the Congressional Budget Office’s(CBO) report. Then he got some phone calls from the CBO. And not just the media office or some low level member. First he got a call from a senior analyst. Later he got another call. That one was from the director. Now while these people are highly intelligent and knowledgeable about the subject, after talking with them Nat was more convinced than ever that he stood by his article and ended up writing another post about how he stood by his article and why. Mr. Keohane had put a paragraph in his article that wasn’t exactly stunning praise of the CBO report. He called it a theoretical exorcise and said the analyst had a faulty premise.
