To get information from the source, here is a small list of top-notch economists who admit their mistakes and are extremely vocal in the community:
Paul Krugman http://krugman.blogs.nytimes.com/
Brad DeLong http://delong.typepad.com/
Keep an eye out for Justin Wolfers’ and Betsey Stevenson’s prescient articles (http://bpp.wharton.upenn.edu/jwolfers/index.shtml)
There are many more, and reading through some of their articles should provide ample opportunity to explore the issues further.

Regular posting will be resuming in the near future
