A Big Hole in the Economics Curriculum

George Leef

In this week's Pope Center Clarion Call, Professor Bruce Caldwell of Duke University discusses what he sees as a big hole in the graduate economics curriculum and one that's developing in the undergraduate curriculum -- courses in the history of economic thought. If you think it deplorable that English students can get their degrees without reading Shakespeare, is it not equally deplorable that economics students can get theirs without reading Adam Smith, David Ricardo, F. A. Hayek and, yes, Karl Marx?
