What's hot in economics

From a scan of the leading journals I make the following observations
  1. political economics is becoming mainstream following Acemoglu and Persson
  2. theoretical econometrics is becoming a niche
  3. nonlinear models are becoming more popular
  4. game theory pretends to answer everyday questions, as does experimental economics, following Levitt
Have you made similar or additional observations recently?
