IPE in the USA

March 6, 2009

Get thee over to The Monkey Cage. Once there, read Henry’s summary of the debate in the current issue of the Review of International Political Economy concerning US IPE monoculture.

The thematic issue, which has been in the works for quite some time, could not have come at a better moment.

With the discipline of Economics shaken by the irrelevance of much of their work to recent events, I have to wonder if, and when, those who have designed IPE with the goal of emulating the dismal science will make more of an effort to open their subfield to the benefits of intellectual heterodoxy.
