    That is an extraordinarily insightful and humbling reality check for scholars. I’ve tried to get at a somewhat similar point in this post, but you’ve done this in a more subtle way.

    here’s an interesting post from Marginal Revolution on potentially parallel motion in econ itself:

    What has mattered to economics since 1970

    Tyler Cowen

    We compile the list of articles published in major refereed economics journals during the last 35 years that have received more than 500 citations. We document major shifts in the mode of contribution and in the importance of different sub-fields: Theory loses out to empirical work, and micro and macro give way to growth and development in the 1990s.

    That is from Kim, Morse, and Zingales; here is the paper.
