Should heterodox economics be taught in or outside economics departments?
There have been many student calls for more pluralism in economics classrooms. The paper outlines the reasons for which such a call is unlikely to be heard. Orthodox economists believe that there is already enough pluralism and debates within the orthodoxy, and they do not realise that heterodox economists can make a positive contribution to the field, believing instead that their contribution is mostly made up of various criticisms of mainstream economics. In addition, the present situation is not conducive to more pluralism because there is an excess supply flow of PhDs in economics willing to pursue an academic career. More pluralism in the classroom may thus necessitate the creation of a new field, distinct from economics.
