Scarcity or Economic Insecurity? Two Yardsticks for Measuring Capitalisms Performance by Costas Panayotakis Abstract: This article argues that capitalisms relationship to economic insecurity is as important for the evaluation of that system as its relationship to scarcity. Analyzing the focus of neoclassical economics and Marxism on capitalisms relationship to scarcity, the article describes both the weaknesses of these approaches and how capitalisms relationship to economic insecurity offers a more cogent elaboration of the insight, affirmed by these traditions, that the economic system should serve human needs. Keywords: capitalism; ecology; economic insecurity; Marxism; neoclassical economics; scarcity.
Critical Thinking, Curriculum Mapping, and Economic Education: An Essay by Daniel Friesner, Donald Hackney Abstract: This essay argues that the economics profession must better define what critical thinking is, how it is embedded in our teaching, and how that teaching incorporates both the breadth and depth with which those topics are covered. Doing so will allow economists to i) identify and remediate gaps in the depth or breadth of students critical thinking skills as they are used in economics; ii) more effectively convey economic concepts to students in the classroom; and iii) promote greater understanding and appreciation for different schools of economic thought. Keywords: critical thinking; teaching; curriculum mapping; prerequisites.
Macroeconomics must have an ethical foundation by Finn Olesen Abstract: With the recent international crisis as a revelation, modern mainstream macroeconomics has been subject to a lot of criticism. Why only tell students of economics the mainstream story of a well-functioning economy that performs almost to perfection letting the economy in general operate closely around the intertemporal equilibrium path of harmony making full employment outputs become the expected outcome in the longer run? However, modern mainstream macroeconomics could also be exposed to a different kind of criticism. What about ethical aspects? Should (macro)economics concern itself with questions of morality? Keywords: Macroeconomics; Post-Keynesianism; ethics & morality.
Mapping Foundations of Logical Analysis to Principles of Microeconomics Courses by Daniel Friesner, Donald Hackney, Tim Schibik Abstract: The undergraduate economic education literature espouses the use of critical thinking. Yet students continue to display gaps in critical thinking, and few meaningful changes have been made to teaching undergraduate economics to address this gap. This manuscript illustrates how to create a curriculum map linking foundational logical reasoning skills to an undergraduate, principles of micro-economics course. The map may be useful in identifying gaps in prerequisite logical reasoning skills, and giving general direction to address these gaps. We find that principles of microeconomics courses require foundational logical reasoning skills comprising half of a semester-long course on logical reasoning. Keywords: curriculum mapping; logical reasoning; critical thinking; microeconomics; economic education.
