Economics as ideology

Abstract [en]

It is an illusion to believe that mainstream neoclassical economics is neutral in terms of value and ideology. The ideology of neoclassical economics is specific and differs from the ideology of specific alternatives to neoclassical economics. Limiting education in economics to the neoclassical paradigm means that university departments of economics in addition to their scientific role get a role as political propaganda centers. Only pluralism is compatible with a democratic society and is a reasonable starting point for education and research in economics.
