In Doctrines, Economics, Myth Industry, Pluralism

This version of the paper first published in the [International Review of Economics Education] expands the argument found there. The two papers taken together are a summary presentation of the concept of ‘Assertive Pluralism’ as the central antitude to economic dogma, both as it manifests itself in mainstream neoclassical economics, and within the heterodox schools that nominally oppose it, but reproduce its monotheoretic and suppressive structure and ideas in a modified form.

For historical interest I include also the contents page of the special issue of AJES.
