Rethinking Economics

Today, the general consensus is that economics as a discipline is in need of a major rethink. In this 5-session course, we will challenge the dominant neoclassical paradigm and explore new perspectives that capture the complexity of current economic reality. The course will be based on Kate Raworth’s Doughnut Economics. We strongly recommend that participants familiarize themselves with the material before the beginning of classes.

Instructor:
 Ron Rubin
Dates: 9/6, 9/13, 9/27, 10/4, 10/11
Time: 6:30 PM – 8:30 PM

Main Text:

  1. Kate Raworth, Doughnut Economics – 7 Ways to Think Like a 21st Century Economist (2017)
