¿Cómo llegó la economía a semejante situación?
In this short essay Hodgson denounces the superficiality in the teaching of economics and agrees with the student protests which have urged deep academic reforms. He also censures the absence of plurality and tolerance in teaching methods and argues that excessive mathematical formulation, together with the commercialization of knowledge and research have contributed to narrowing the approach of economics. He proposes the study of philosophy, economic history, history of ideas, as well as relevant social institutions and the practical conditions of social politics, should be as important as the academic requirement of knowledge of mathematics.
