English term or phrase: to task for underselling the benefits
Johnson and I had often taken stands on the opposite sides of the argument, while remaining friends and respectful of each other’s views. Johnson had been critical of my argument that capital controls had helped Malaysia avoid an even worse downturn during the Asian financial crisis. When my skeptical views on financial globalization appeared in the financial press, Johnson was quick with his letters to the editor taking me and my co-author to task for underselling the benefits of free capital flows and for overlooking the “collateral benefits” argument in their favor.
