The Boston Review posted a piece by a group of economists led by Suresh Naidu, Dani Rodrik, and Gabriel Zucman calling for economics to go “beyond neoliberalism” and outlined an agenda for reform. INET Oxford’s Eric Beinhocker and Doyne Farmer co-authored a response with 11 other members of the complex systems community calling for economics to open up to a more interdisciplinary approach and to ideas from outside the neoclassical/neoliberal paradigm.
This is a debate that is long overdue in economics and it is encouraging to see economists and people from other fields engaging on these issues. We need a real paradigm shift if we’re going to solve the big problems the world faces. Eric Beinhocker
