Heterodox Economics: History and Prospects

Dow S (2011) Heterodox Economics: History and Prospects, Cambridge Journal of Economics, 35 (6), pp. 1151-1165.

Frederic S Lee’s collection of essays makes a substantial contribution to our understanding of the history of heterodox economics, and to our sense of heterodox economics as a community. This paper explores issues arising from the volume in relation to the characterisation of this history, the understanding of heterodox economics itself and the nature and role of such a history from a historiographical perspective. The paper concludes with a discussion of the future of heterodox economics and an argument for a pluralist strategy for its promotion.
