Introduction: The financial crash and post-crash economics

    Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingForeword/postscript

    Abstract

    This book undertakes an examination of the problems facing economics as a discipline taught in universities. It does so against a background when economics is more influential within public discourse than has been the case in decades while at the same time when the ideas typically identified as the totality of the economics are being fundamentally critiqued and challenged from both within and out with the discipline. The book, written from the perspectives of those engaged with the discipline from across a range of universities, seeks to provide some indication of where the discipline should look for more appropriate theories for the world we live in.
