Where Economists Teach.
Muma, Patrick A.
International Social Science Journal, v39 n3 p425-33 Aug 1987
Argues that where economists teach should influence what they do and how they explain economics. This premise is illustrated by specific references to African economics. Suggests that the philosophical dimension of economics is as important as the specific pedagogy used. Advocates adapting textbook theories to the social and institutional reality of the students.
