Which modern economist do you credit for knowing the most about Macroeconomics?

My favorite is Paul Krugman. He knows everything about monetary policies, trade, and taxes.

I like Ezra Klein. Everything he writes about just makes sense to me.

Ezra Klein is not an economist.

Or are you just being sarcastic?

No, no sarcasm. Let's just say that I like when he has write articles from an economist's standpoint. So I'll withdraw my answer since he's not truly an economist.

Hunt Allcott, Greenstone to assauge my world citizen psycho-analytical "guilt". Emmanuel Farhi, really a bright and "peel back the onion" economist. Jean Tirole, a really brilliant (almost too smart for most-i.e. boring) economist who has great insight and theories on game theory. A makes my head hurt kinda guy.
