How Do We Change The Economic Curriculum?

Sunday, June 8th, 9:30 AM to 10:45 AM
Room 320/322

This workshop will not directly address the issue of what’s wrong with what is now taught in economics courses; it will start from the assumption that quite a lot is wrong. Nor will it prescribe exactly what should be done to improve the curriculum, but will instead start from the question: Suppose we agree on what should be taught in economics curricula, how can such change be brought about?  To answer this question will require discussion of the forces that now act as barriers to change, as well as strategic approaches for overcoming these barriers.
