La economía feminista analiza la interrelación entre el género y la economía. Para la economía feminista, la comprensión del trabajo, que no solo incluye el trabajo asalariado sino también el trabajo doméstico y los cuidados, además del (no) pago del trabajo y su distribución entre los géneros, son elementos centrales.

El programa de estudios ofrece una visión general de los contenidos del módulo Género y Economía de la Universidad de Buenos Aires.
 
La EPM concibe la economía como un proceso continuo de transformación de la naturaleza y la sociedad mediante la producción. Así, la economía no se concibe como una plataforma neutral de intercambio y cooperación, sino como una constitución histórica y política caracterizada principalmente por relaciones de poder asimétricas, ideología y conflictos sociales.
 
La idea central de la economía ecológica es que la actividad económica humana está acotada por límites absolutos. Sin embargo, estos límites no son completamente fijos, ya que están codeterminados por: (1) «límites planetarios» (fijos) (Rockström et al. 2009) y (2) factores sociales (dinámicos), como valores, instituciones, etc. La economía se concibe como un subsistema integrado en los sistemas más amplios de la sociedad y la biosfera.

El "vivir bien" y el "buen vivir" son formas de rescatar una nueva aportación del desarrollo, y se presentan justo como una alternativa al pensamiento hegemónico. Ana Esther Ceceña, en el capítulo primero, parte de cómo se organiza lo económico, Alba Carosio, en el capítulo segundo, establece el enfoque de asegurar la calidad de vida de las personas; mientras que Antonio Palazuelos pone énfasis en el Plan Nacional de Desarrollo para el Buen Vivir centrándose en tres factores importantes: la economía popular y solidaria, la seguridad alimentaria y los grupos vulnerables. Silvia Berger evalúa las implicaciones de haber adoptado en el feminismo latinoamericano las líneas generales del movimiento feministas mundial. Por su parte, Jaqueline Butcher explica el tercer sector en México y su relación con el desarrollo económico y social del país. En el capítulo sexto, Rodolfo García Zamora y Monsterrat García muestran cómo las organizaciones de migrantes mexicanos han financiado obras de infraestructura básica en sus comunidades de origen. El libro finaliza con el capítulo siete, a cargo de Ana María Aragonés y Uberto Salgado, quienes se centran en un análisis comparativo del impacto que tienen la migración de trabajadores altamente calificados y las remesas sobre el desarrollo de seis países.

By conducting a discourse analysis (SKAD) in the field of academic economics textbooks, this paper aims at reconstructing frames and identity options offered to undergraduate students relating to the questions ‘Why study economics?’ and ‘Who do I become by studying economics?’. The analysis showed three major frames and respective identity offerings, all of which are contextualized theoretically, with prominent reference to the Foucauldian reflection of the science of Political Economy. Surprisingly, none of them encourages the student to think critically, as could have been expected in a pedagogical context. Taken together, economics textbooks appear as a “total structure of actions brought to bear upon possible action” (Foucault), therefore, as a genuine example of Foucauldian power structures.

The leading edges of economic thinking in the early 21st century are marked by a nascent pluralism - a positive valuing of difference and complexity - regarding the nature and evolution of human behaviour and economic organization. Economic Pluralism brings these pluralist sensibilities to the fore.

The global financial crisis (GFC) led to increasing distrust in economic research and the economics profession, in the process of which the current state of economics and economic education in particular were heavily criticized. Against this background we conducted a study with undergraduate students of economics in order to capture their view of economic education.

The article pursues the two related questions of how economists pretend to know and why they want to know at all. It is argued that both the economic form of knowledge and the motivation of knowing have undergone a fundamental change during the course of the 20th century. The knowledge of important contemporary economic textbooks has little in common with an objective, decidedly scientifically motivated knowledge. Rather, their contents and forms follow a productive end, aiming at the subjectivity of their readers.

In this essay, the author takes a critical perspective on the pursuit of growth as the solution for providing for environmental sustainability and economic stability in the countries of Central and Eastern Europe. Drawing from the framework of dependency theory and presenting brief insights into European core-periphery relations the author then argues for the implementation of an alternative strategy to development that is built around the concept of self-reliance.

Banking 101 is a series of 6 short videos that ask the following questions: How do banks work and how is money created? Is reveals common misunderstandings of money creation and the role of banks. Furthermore, the videos show how models taught in many introductory classes to economics (Econ 101) do not reflect those processes: Part 1) “Misconceptions around Banking” questions common comprehensions of how banks work (savings = investments). Part 2) “What's wrong with the money multiplier” states that the model of the money multiplies is inaccurate. Part 3) “How is money really made by banks” explains the process of money creation, loans and inter-bank settlement. Part 4) “How much money banks create?” asks what limits the money creation by banks and presents the difference between reserve ratio, liquidity ration, equity and refers to the inter-bank market. Part 5) Explores the question if banks create money or just credit and especially refers to credit risks. Part 6) Explains how money gets destroyed when loans are paid back. Note: The videos refer to the UK monetary and banking system, some explanations don't apply to other banking systems, e.g. the reserve ratio.

The module is designed to first present some of the main schools of thought from a historical and methodological perspective. Each week we explore and critically assess the main tenants of each school of thought. In the second part of the module we link history of economic thought and methodology to a specific and contemporary economic question. The second part allows you to engage with current economic issues with an awareness of methodology and methodological differences and with some knowledge of the history of economics.

This paper starts with an evaluation of three common arguments against pluralism in economics: (1) the claim that economics is already pluralist, (2) the argument that if there was the need for greater plurality, it would emerge on its own, and (3) the assertion that pluralism means ‘anything goes’ and is thus unscientific. Pluralist responses to all three arguments are summarized. The third argument is identified to relate to a greater challenge for pluralism: an epistemological trade-off between diversity and consensus that suggests moving from a discussion about ‘pros’ and ‘cons’ towards a discussion about the adequate degree of plurality. We instantiate the trade-off by showing how it originates from two main challenges: the need to derive adequate quality criteria for a pluralist economics, and the necessity to propose strategies that ensure the communication across different research programs. The paper concludes with some strategies to meet these challenges.

Los economistas evolutivos examinan cómo y por qué cambia la economía. Este énfasis en la naturaleza cambiante del capitalismo es la característica crucial que los distingue de sus homólogos no evolutivos. En consecuencia, sus temas más frecuentes son: el crecimiento económico, el cambio estructural, los procesos y sistemas de innovación, el cambio tecnológico, el cambio institucional y el desarrollo económico.

¿Qué es la inflación? ¿Por qué es relevante? ¿Hay una teoría consensuada con respecto a sus orígenes y sus causas o es un concepto más bien polémico? Sobre estas cuestiones trata precisamente este texto: empezamos definiendo lo que significa realmente la inflación para adentrarnos luego en el debate teórico desde una perspectiva interdisciplinar y pluralista: ¿cuál es su causa?, ¿qué factores influyen en ella? y en consecuencia, ¿qué podemos hacer al respecto?

What’s inflation? Why is it relevant? And is there an agreed theory about its roots and causes, or is it a contentious concept? That’s what this text is all about: We define what inflation actually means before we delve into the theoretical debate with an interdisciplinary and pluralist approach: What gives rise to it, what factors might influence it, and, consequently, what might be done about it?

Are humans at their core seekers of their own pleasure or cooperative members of society? Paradoxically, they are both. Pleasure-seeking can take place only within the context of what works within a defined community, and central to any community are the evolved codes and principles guiding appropriate behavior, or morality.
