I've been following it closely.  Krugman has had a lot to say about it.  He's been against it from the start, but then, he's a Keynesian. 

And not only was the excel error a problem, but R&R exclused excluded important data and exaggerated the correlation of others.  In all, austerity was a sham.

Some linky-poos.

Daily Kos has a ton of links to krugman and other economists who throroughly trashed R&R.  I just didn't have the time to look them all up.
