TWO Federation University academics are encouraging people to think a little more broadly on economic theories and teachings.
Reclaiming Pluralism in Economics is a book of readings aiming to make pluralism, which includes a wide variety of economic theories, to be a standard rather than a challenge to mainstream economics discipline.
Federation University associated professors Jerry Courvisanos and Alex Millmow teamed with Victoria University-based James Doughney edited the book, which they released in honour of renowned economist and Federation University honorary professor John Edward King. Mr King has an extensive publication record in economic theory with specific interest in how past economic thought shapes modern economic theory, policy and development.
“This book is of interest to those who study the discipline of economics and its importance in influencing world events, especially for those attracted to history of economic thought, political economy and heterodox economics,” Associate professor Millmow said.
