Rebellious Economics Students Have a Point

Rebellious Economics Students Have a Point | Education 3.0 - Onderwijs 3.0 | Scoop.it
University students are rejecting the textbook methodology that all too often reduces economics to a set of mathematical exercises.
Xenia Orgielewski's insight:

“To put it bluntly, the discipline of economics has to get over its childish passion for mathematics and for purely theoretical and often highly ideological speculation, at the expense of historical research and collaboration with the other social sciences.”  Thomas Piketty

...
The open letter calls for students to be exposed to “a variety of theoretical perspectives, from the commonly taught neoclassically-based approaches to the largely excluded classical, post-Keynesian, institutional, ecological, feminist, Marxist and Austrian traditions—among others. Most economics students graduate without ever encountering such diverse perspectives in the classroom.”

...

I can't agree more.
