Key elements of pluralism include respect for diversity/alternative views, toleration, willingness to learn, curiosity, friendliness. Among economists, Edward Fullbrook dissects weaknesses of traditional economics while advocating pluralism; John Groenewegen exhorts universities to incorporate pluralism and connect to other social sciences; Mark Maier and Julie Nelson provide suggestions for making economics relevant to high-school students within a pluralist framework; Jack Reardon offers hands-on approaches for incorporating pluralism in the classroom.

More on this journal...

The objectives of IJPEE are:

  • to provide a forum for the exchange of ideas thereby fostering communication within the growing pluralist community;
  • to advance the techniques and concepts of pluralist economics by providing practical suggestions to incorporate pluralism into the classroom;
  • to offer teachers and educators interested in pluralism an outlet for their research; and
  • to change the emphasis of economic education by making pluralism a central feature.


We expect an international audience, not just in Europe and North America but also in Central America, Asia and the former Soviet Union. Pluralism is vital for solving our pressing economic and ecological problems, in developed and developing countries.


Issue will contain solicited articles and a book review section. In addition, two sections, “Notes, Communications and Dialogue” and “Pedagogical Techniques”, will be included to foster communication and implement pluralist techniques. Each issue will contain articles of interest to all pluralist economists, as well as more specialised articles devoted to teaching pluralism in the classroom, book reviews and the notes section. IJPEE will also publish special issues devoted to solving current problems from a pluralist perspective.
