History of Economic Thought

Introduction

Welcome to YSI History of Economic Thought Working Group!

The History of Economic Thought Working Group is devoted to disinterring the roots of contemporary economic orthodoxy, exhuming time-honoured rival approaches, and imagining possible futures.

The History of Economic Thought Working Group is devoted to disinterring the roots of contemporary economic orthodoxy, exhuming time-honoured rival approaches, and imagining possible futures.

What were the great controversies in economic thought, and how were they settled (or were they ever, really)? What different answers did diverse schools of thought give (and often continue to give) to the same questions? What different questions did they ask? What is the story of the current orthodoxy and why does it have the power that it has? How do other traditions in economics and beyond differ? It is only through a robust understanding of our intellectual history that we can both properly comprehend present-day economics and have a sense of what viable alternatives to the current order might exist. To further the existence of a community of scholars devoted to this important endeavour, the Working Group hosts seminars and other events exploring the wide array of topics pertaining to the history of economic thought.

Members of the Working Group are encouraged to use it as a way of building professional and intellectual networks that can help them advance their own careers, find others to critically engage with their work, and foster the exchange of ideas on this topic on a larger scale.
