ESEE Economics for Rebels podcast host Alexandra Köves speaks to J. Christopher Proctor from Rethinking Economics about the need to improve economics education.

Ecological economics is highly critical of mainstream economic thinking and provides new approaches and new solutions to how we could transform our world. However, currently millions of young economists leave their education without even the slightest chance of realising that what they had been offered is a mere indoctrination with mainstream ideas without real critical thinking or alternatives. Today’s guest is J. Christopher Proctor, and we talk about Rethinking Economics and other student movements that demand plurality in economics education.


New #EconomicsForRebels episode! Alexandra Koves speaks to Clive Spash

Humans, values, structures, good science and rebellions in Social Ecological Economics

“The importance of social, political, ethical and institutional factors is something which ecologists are not trained to detect, and economists are trained to neglect”.

Clive Spash

The brilliant “Economics for Rebels” podcast is back again with a new episode!

This week, host Alexandra Köves (Uni Corvinus) speaks to Clive Spash (WU Vienna) about Social Ecological Economics, the lack of dialogue between disciplines, especially mainstream economics, and much much more.

Link to the podcast below.

“Ecological economics is a field that historically evolved from discourses of people from many disciplines. Finally, ecologists and economists were in dialogue with each other on how to transform the world to respect planetary boundaries. Today’s guest Clive Spash argues, however, that “the importance of social, political, ethical and institutional factors is something which ecologists are not trained to detect, and economists are trained to neglect”. The way forward can only be social ecological economics where the necessity of human behavioural change is not overlooked. With Clive Spash we talk about humans, values, structures, institutions, politics, science and rebellions in social ecological economics.”
