There's New Keynesians, Neo-Keyensians -- anyone know what "neo" means? -- Post-Keynesians and unhyphenated Post Keynesians. I was at a macro conference and one of the speakers referred to himself as an "Unhpyphenated Post Keynesian." When I gave my lecture, just to have a little fun, I introduced myself as an "Unhyphenated Austrian Economist" -- the audience wondered where the hyphen wasn't supposed to go.
