Is Teaching Neoclassical Economics as "the" Science of Economics Moral?
Parvin, Manoucher
Journal of Economic Education, v23 n1 p65-78 Win 1992
Discusses the morality of teaching neoclassical theory as the only science of economics. Argues that the teaching of neoclassical theory violates moral principles unless each and every attribute of neoclassical theory is proven superior to corresponding attributes of competing theories. Criticizes neoclassical economics for teaching what rather than how to think. (DK)
