Solow dissing neoclassical microfoundations

The great economist Robert Solow disses neoclassical microfoundations in the 2003 speech posted by Mark Thoma.  It is worth reading the speech and the comments.

He points out the very weakness I note, the "representative agent".  Clearly we need at least two types of agents.
