Environmental catastrophe looms large over politics: from the young person’s climate march to Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’s Green New Deal, increasing amounts of political space are devoted to the issue. Central to this debate is the question of whether economic growth inevitably leads to environmental issues such as depleted finite resources and increased waste, disruption of natural cycles and ecosystems, and of course climate change. Growth is the focal point of the de-growth and zero-growth movements who charge that despite efficiency gains, increased GDP always results in increased use of energy and emissions. On the other side of the debate, advocates of continued growth (largely mainstream economists) believe that technological progress and policies can ‘decouple’ growth from emissions.

Along with addressing core conceptual issues in defining heterodox economics, we will cover in some detail five heterodox traditions in economics: Marxian Economics, Institutional Economics, Post-Keynesian Economics, Feminist Economics, and Ecologi-cal Economics. In the first class meeting, we discuss the structure and goals of the course, as well as the expectations and requirements from the students. In addition, we will discuss the concept of heterodoxy in economics, along with discussing the concepts and key issues in mainstream and neoclassical economics.

p>Twenty-first-century economists will have to understand and improve a post-Cold War world in which no single economic theory or system holds the key to human betterment. Heterodox economists have much to contribute to this effort, as a wave of pluralism spawns new lines of research and new dialogues among non-mainstream economists.

Post-Keynesian and heterodox economics challenge the mainstream economics theories that dominate the teaching at universities and government economic policies. And it was these latter theories that helped to cause the great depression the United States and the rest of the world is in.

Feminist economics is a key component of the movement for pluralism in economics and one that has, to some extent, been acknowledged by the mainstream of the profession. It seeks to highlight issues which affect women because (it claims) they have not traditionally been recognised in a field dominated by men. On top of this, it seeks to carve out a space for women in the discipline, both for intrinsic reasons of fairness and diversity and because it means that women’s issues are more likely to be highlighted going forward.

Mainstream inflation theories in economics do little to explain the recent acceleration in price increases. The associated economic policy recommendations further increase the misery of low-income groups.

Im Folgenden wird untersucht welche Antworten die Wirtschaftswissenschaften auf die Frage geben, welchen Einfluss das Geld in der Gegenwart auf unser Denken und Handeln ausübt. Dabei wird deutlich, dass der Mainstream der Wirtschaftswissenschaften das Geld als einen Denkzwang stets voraussetzt und so Menschen nicht  befähigen kann, diese Denklogik zu überwinden.  Schlussfolgernd werden u.a. mit Rekurs auf ausgewählte Philosophien Erkenntniswege aufgespürt, um die in den Wirtschaftswissenschaften implizierten Bewusstseinsformen systematisch zu vertiefen und ihre Grenzen aufzusprengen.

Understanding international trade is central to economics and is currently a hot political issue. It’s an area where popular perceptions of mainstream economics are low, since they have historically missed some important downsides of trade agreements, especially the hollowing out of former manufacturing hubs in the Western world. et economists have for long time had a theory of trade with an impressive amount of scientific clout behind it: the gravity trade model.

Though apparently siblings from the same family, New Keynesianism and Post-Keynesianism are completely different schools of economic thought. As to why and in what regard exactly, that is what this book is all about. While the former is the official label of the current mainstream in economic research and teaching (rather than neoclassic economics, which would be more apt a term), the latter tries to preserve the original thinking of John Maynard Keynes, but also additional ideas and concepts of all those building on his work.

Mainstream textbooks present economics as an objective science free from value judgements; that settles disputes by testing hypotheses; that applies a pre-determined body of principles; and contains policy prescriptions supported by a consensus of professional opinion.

"Despite the rediscovery of the inequality topic by economists as well as other social scientists in recent times, relatively little is known about how economic inequality is mediated to the wider public of ordinary citizens and workers. That is precisely where this book steps in: It draws on a cross-national empirical study to examine how mainstream news media discuss, respond to, and engage with such important and politically sensitive issues and trends.

When Santa Fe Institute Scientists first started working on economics more than thirty years ago, many of their insights, approaches, and tools were considered beyond heterodox. These once-disparaged approaches included network economics, agents of limited rationality, and institutional evolution—all topics that are now increasingly considered mainstream.

Caring activities are one central element of feminist economists' analysis – also since in particular unremunerated work is a blind spot in mainstream economics and most other economic paradigms. Those focus on the market sphere: activities are considered as productive and as real labour if they are remunerated and market-intermediated. Goods and services are considered as labour if they create a value which can be traded on the market. Feminist Economics remarks that this perspective creates certain dichotomies and consequent devaluations: unproductive – productive; private – public; unpaid – remunerated OR paid less – well paid; female – male; soft work – hard work; caring – rationality.

Neben alten und aktuellen Diskursen der Feministischen Ökonomik stellt Adelheid Biesecker deren Kritik am Ökonomischen Mainstream vor: das Denken in Dualismen und den Ausschluss von sozialer und ökologischer Reproduktion aus der Ökonomie. Dabei geht sie auch auf das Wissenschaftsverständnis feministischer Ökonominnen ein und erläutert unterschiedliche Bedeutungen von Gender in der Ökonomie. Aufbauend auf ihren Analysen stellt Biesecker Überlegungen zur Ausgestaltung einer zukunftsfähigen Wirtschaftsordnung und Konzepte wie Vorsorgendes Wirtschaften vor. Ein Fokus des Vortrags liegt auf dem Arbeitsbegriff und Care.

In this keynote lecture during the conference „The Spectre of Stagnation? Europe in the World Economy“, Till van Treek presents research on how changes in income distribution lead to macroeconomic instability and crisis, focusing on currents accounts. Treek presents the relative income hypothesis in contrast to other mainstream and Post-Keynesian explanations. The relative income hypothesis proposes that aggregate demand increases and savings decrease with rising personal income inequality due to upward looking status comparison – but effects depend on the quantile where income inequality increases. Treek points to the importance of accounting for both income and functional income distribution and underlines his arguments with data comparing different pattern in Germany and the U.S.

In this lecture Mirowski claims that a good critique of and alternative to neoclassical economics should focus on microeconomics. In addition, he claims that mainstream economics is not about a specific "human nature", instead the understanding of markets (partially based on Hayek) is of special importance. As an alternative Mirowski proposes institutionalist economics that builds upon how markets work nowadays (e.g. links to computer science).

Das Video „Der Kampf gegen die Ungleichheit und Politische Ökonomie der Umverteilung“ setzt sich aus drei Vorträgen zusammen: zunächst präsentiert Hansjörg Herr „Erklärungsansätze für zunehmende Ungleichheit der Markteinkommen“ und vergleicht diese mit Neoklassischen Ansätzen zu Ungleichheit. Herr erläutert dabei unter anderem Finanzialisierung, Deregulierung und funktionale Einkommensverteilung. Wiederkehrend nimmt Herr Bezug zu Erklärungen Pikettys. Im Anschluss (ab 28:26) präsentiert Christoph Scherrer „Politische Strategien zur Minderung wirtschaftlicher Ungleichheit“ (28:26) und fokussiert sich dabei auf auf die Frage, wie das Finanzsystem zu Ungleichheiten beiträgt. Abschließend erläutert Achim Truger in dem Vortrag „Maßnahmen gegen die Ungleichheit: Der deutsche ökonomische Mainstream als Reformbremse“ (55:15) die Position des Sachverständigenrates in der Ungleichheitsdebatte.

Eckhard Hein criticises the mainstream's view of secular stagnation as the result of a negative real equilibrium interest rate. Arguing in a Keynesian spirit with particular reference to Steindl, secular stagnation is considered to be a result of shift in the functional income distribution, and oligopolistic organisation of industries, leading to excess capacity and reluctance to invest. This acts as a drag on effective demand and results in secular stagnation. Distributional policies and public investment can, however, overcome stagnation its tendencies.

Die Vorlesung beginnt mit einer kurzen Übersicht zur Kritik an der Mainstream Ökonomik. Dabei wird Konzept der unsichtbaren Hand in den historischen Kontext gesetzt und einige der Annahmen und Inkonsistenzen der allgemeinen Gleichgewichtstheorie dargestellt. Der Hauptteil der Vorlesung beschäftigt sich mit Kooperations und Anti-Kooperationsspielen. Im Besonderen wird auf die Bedeutung bzw. die Möglichkeit von Rationalität in den Spielen eingegangen. Die betrachteten Spiele sind das Gefangenendilemma, Stag Hunt, Chicken, Battle of the sexes, und Taube/Falke. In der Diskussion der evolutionären Spieltheorie wird besonderes Augenmerk auf die Auswirkungen Häufigkeit eines Akteurs in einer Population gelegt. Die Vorlesung endet mit einem kurzen Exkurs zu den Eigenschaften von verschiedenen komplexen Systemen, u.a. power law Verteilungen.

The MINE website explores the interplay between nature and economy. Focusing on such fundamental concepts as time, thermodynamics, evolution, homo politicus and justice, a new outline of economic activity emerges within nature. The dominant approach of Mainstream Economics, which considers nature as a subsystem of the economy, is thus replaced by a broader and more integrated framework. The visual map and its links between concepts provides an orientation. The visitor can approach the content from their own starting point and follow their own path to discovery. Each concept starts with the historical background and moves on through theory and practice. The research behind MINE began in the 1970s at the University of Heidelberg, Germany, in an interdisciplinary group spearheaded by Professor Malte Faber, including scientists from economics to mathematics, physics and philosophy. The research has contributed to the field of Ecological Economics. MINE is directed at students, scientists and decion-makers. More on http://nature-economy.de/faq/
