The Making of an Economist, Redux, por David Colander


  • Yan Liang



¿Por qué deberíamos prestar atención a lo que está siendo enseñado en los programas de Economía? La respuesta, proporcionada por Colander, es que allí se reflejan la naturaleza, el valor y las promesas de la actual profesión de economía. Ésta es la motivación del libro The Making of an Economist, Redux, una actualización de la encuesta original llevada a cabo por Colander y Klamer en 1987. Usando una metodología similar, Colander realizó encuestas y entrevistas con estudiantes de posgrado de las siete universidades mejor clasificadas, incluyendo la Universidad de Chicago, Universidad de Columbia, Universidad de Hardvard, Instituto Tecnológico de Massachusetts -MIT-, Universidad de Stanford, Universidad de Yale y Universidad de Princeton.
