Rethinking how we teach economics: study economic history

Rethinking how we teach economics: study economic history

Robert Skidelsky
"Models that tell us economic collapses cannot happen are no use in trying to understand what did happen in 2008; for this we must go back to such historical greats as Keynes, Hayek and Schumpeter. Forecasting models based on average data of five "good" years cannot begin to guard us against the manias, panics and crashes that have punctuated economic history. If the recent collapse can restore forgotten knowledge to the education of future economists, it will at least have done some good".
Muy buen artículo sobre la importancia de volver a repasar la historia de la economía de modo académico, para no perdernos el todo.
