    Sent to me by a collaborator:

     " ... one great mystery of the field [economics] is how rapidly and
    totally its dissenters have vanished. One step beyond the mainstream in
    economics, evidently, there lies an intellectual Bermuda Triangle where
    voyages of thought disappear without a trace. Some of the missing have
    turned up on other shores ... But word of their survival rarely makes it
    back to their native discipline." p149 Frank Ackerman "Foundations of
    Economic Theories of Consumption" in Goodwin,N.R. Ackerman, F. & Kiron,
    D. (1995) The Consumer Society. Island Press,Washington.

    regards,
    Scott Moss
