Auburn University professor Dr. Liliana Stern joins a special live episode of the Human Action Podcast for an unvarnished look at the state of economics education today. Why are theory and history ignored, while warmed-over Keynesian models dominate? How can Austrians reclaim their rightful place in the curriculum? Are economics students finding jobs? Why do academic publishing and textbook rackets persist? And why is actual teaching such a low priority?
If you care about how economics is taught today, don’t miss this show!
The Mises Institute exists to promote teaching and research in the Austrian school of economics, and individual freedom, honest history, and international peace, in the tradition of Ludwig von Mises and Murray N. Rothbard. These great thinkers developed praxeology, a deductive science of human action based on premises known with certainty to be true, and this is what we teach and advocate. Our scholarly work is founded in Misesian praxeology, and in self-conscious opposition to the mathematical modeling and hypothesis-testing that has created so much confusion in neoclassical economics.
