This article is a critique of the dominance of neoclassical economics. It densely gathers many critiques that give rise to the call for more pluralism within economics. The author argues that economics has become dogmatic, monolithic, merely quantitative, highly normative, strongly political, primarily ethical, pseudo-scientific, and manipulative.


Comment from our editors:

This can be seen as a very dense overview of the critiques of mainstream economics and economics as an academic field. It is not complicated and can serve as some sort of introduction or to stimulate thoughts.
