The Old Economics

The Old Economics

IN PRAISE OF STUDENTS OF ECONOMICS AT MANCHESTER UNIVERSITY FOR RISING AGAINST NEO-CLASSICAL FUNDAMENTALISM

By Kamran Mofid

Dear Friends,

“Undergraduates at Manchester University are seeking to tear up the free-market syllabus and proposing an overhaul of orthodox teachings to embrace alternative theories”

What wonderfully good news! Once again, another group of brave students of economics at a university have risen against the “dismal science” and the madness of the neo-clasical economics, its ways and its teachings.

I am delighted to hear that the Manchester students have seen the light, like their fellow students at other universities, such as the class of 2000 at the Sorbonne.

The battles at Manchester, the Sorbonne and elsewhere are worthy causes and they must be supported. However, to win will not be easy. There are many self-serving and self-interested groups that will fight them, wishing to destroy the spirit of their opponents.

This is why I want to highlight the Manchester University students’ initiative. This is why I want to support them and why I am asking for your support too.
