Introducing a New Economics
Pluralist, Sustainable and Progressive
Jack Reardon, Maria Alejandra Caporale Madi and Molly Scott Cato
Publisher: Pluto Press
Introducing a New Economics is a groundbreaking textbook that heralds a revolution in the teaching of economics. Students and lecturers alike are rejecting the narrow curricula and lack of intellectual diversity that characterise the mainstream. They demand that the real world should be brought back into the classroom, insisting that this is the only way to confront the current crisis.
With a firm commitment to theoretical, methodological and disciplinary pluralism, the renowned authors of this book challenge the current hegemony head-on. This unique textbook reflects a new ethos of economics education, highlighting sustainability and justice in its discussion of work, employment, power, capital, markets, money and debt.
This volume is a work of progressive, heterodox economics that will set the standard for years to come.
