Sites of pluralism in economics teaching
One key issue that has arisen lately is how to ensure an economics curricula encourages students to think critically about the nature of the materials they are provided with and the modern world those materials are supposed to provide an insight into.
There has been growing recognition that economics teaching and research is overly narrow in its content and restricted in its capacity to provide multiple ways of considering a problem. This is not a healthy state-of-affairs for any science. There are, however, many sites, sources and scholars that provide a broader based and more engaged approach to economics. We provide access to some of them here.
