Dear users, today we have a very personal request. We have decided to offer our learning materials free of charge because we believe in an open, pluralist economic science that is available to everyone, worldwide. We do this without advertising because we want to remain independent of commercial interests. But our commitment to independence and open access also has its price. Every year we have large costs for programming, staff and to support our authors. If everyone reading this gave a small amount, we could keep Exploring Economics thriving for years to come - but 99% of our users don't give. So today we ask you to protect Exploring Economics's independence. The heart and soul of Exploring Economics is a community of people working to bring you unlimited access to high-qualitiy, economic learning and teaching material. Please take just a few moments to help us keep Exploring Economics going. Thank you!

Beyond Neoclassical Economics – Heterodox Approaches to Economic Theory
BlurbBeyond Neoclassical Economics is a remarkable new introduction to the main heterodox schools of economic thought which examines their main concepts and their critiques of mainstream theory.
Offering a wide spectrum of theory and viewpoints that both complement and challenge mainstream and conventional thought, this substantial volume explores schools of thought and traditions poorly covered in most conventional economics textbooks. The schools presented include Austrian economics, Geo-economics, the Virginia school of political economy, Institutional economics, Feminist economics, Humanist economics and Nondeterminist Marxism. The papers in this volume have been prepared by leading scholars who offer new perspectives on conventional thought, as well as dialogue and commentary between their different approaches to economics.
The aim of this major book is not only to understand the thought, methodology, and approach of various economic schools, but also to explain why there are different approaches to economics and how the different schools relate to one another.
