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.
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.
