New blog: Developing Economics

Last month, I created the Developing Economics blog. This blog takes a critical approach to development economics and seeks to stimulate debate and critical reflection among academics and practitioners from all relevant fields. I decided to create this platform after noticing that although there are a lot of great blogs on heterodox economics and on international development, there is no blog devoted to the specific niche of heterodox/critical thinking on economic development.

The blog is meant to be hub for critical thinking (not just my opinions), so please get in touch should you want to contribute to the blog! Many excellent guest bloggers have already contributed.

You can also follow the blog on Twitter and like it on Facebook.

Blog post: How to Justify Teaching the Worst of Economics to Non-Economists

miracle-at-blackboard

In a new blog post on New School Economic Review, I discuss the challenges of teaching both orthodox and heterodox economics in one single Economics class. This blog post proceeded to go viral and has been shared on social media over 4000 times to date. Someone also translated it to Spanish.
