Who do you have in mind as "the best of the business theorists"?
I tend to think of business models as well within standard economics.
So in those terms Krugman might be faulted for not knowing enough
about a certain area of economics. My guess though is that these
business theorists you like are far from having established their
new business models to most economist's satisfaction.
