Alternative approaches in economics
The department has several researchers whose principal (or subsidiary) research interests lie outside the mainstream, narrowly defined. In economic history, they study the development of US industry, German economic history before and after 1945, and twentieth-century globalization. In the history of economic thought, their research focuses on Austrian economics, Marxian political economy and Post Keynesian macroeconomics. In heterodox economics, their interests include the Austrian, Marxian and Post Keynesian schools and the case for pluralism in economics, especially in undergraduate teaching.
