Variety of Methodological Approach in Economics

Sheila Dow

Chapter 13 in Foundations for New Economic Thinking, 2012, pp 210-230 from Palgrave Macmillan

Abstract: Abstract In this chapter, we take stock of economics in methodological terms. The discipline of economics is continually changing, requiring a reexamination of the concepts of mainstream economics and non-mainstream economics. The particular feature of recent change which this chapter examines is the appearance of increasing variety, or plurality, in economics, in particular in economic theory, and what this implies for non-mainstream economics. In the process, we revisit a range of themes addressed earlier in the volume.
