2020 (English)In: Principles and Pluralist Approaches in Teaching Economics: Towards a Transformative Science / [ed] Decker, Samuel, Wolfram Elsner and Svenja Flechtner, London: Routledge, 2020, p. 138-151Chapter in book (Refereed)
Abstract [en]

Present development trends are unsustainable in important respects. Reference can be made to a failure in governance. Behind governance is neoclassical economics as a mainstream conceptual framework and neoliberalism as ideology. It can be argued that neoclassical theory in its monopoly position and that neoliberalism with its extreme beliefs in markets has failed.

Pluralism in economics education is a first step. We need a new conceptual framework in economics education, new ideas about the concept of economics, about individuals, organizations, markets, decision-making, assessment of public projects, sustainability politics and institutional change. An attempt in this direction is presented in the chapter.

It is not an easy task to organize and implement courses and programs in ecological economics at a university where economics and business management departments are largely locked into traditional ideas of their disciplines. Some experiences from 10 years of ecological economic education in Sweden are presented.
