oikos Guide to Pluralist Economics

09 February 2018 | News | Economics, Education

Pluralist economics is the idea that the best way to understand the economy is to study a large number of competing theories. If you’ve studied economics in the past, this might sound like a pretty foreign concept. Economics is often taught as if it is a hard science, with strict rules that need to be followed if one is to come to the correct answer. Pluralist economists disagree with this vision of economics. Instead, they think that listening to and respecting a diverse set of voices is a sign of strength, not weakness.

This guide was created by oikos associate J.Christopher Proctor to give people a quick introduction to pluralist economics. For questions about pluralism, or to host a workshop on the topic, contact J.Christopher at j.christopher.proctor@oikos-international.org.
