    Open letter from economic students

    Message par ECO&G le 2008-01-01, 05:47

    We, economics students of the world, declare ourselves
    to be generally dissatisfied with the teaching that we receive. This is
    so for the following reasons :


    1. We wish to escape from imaginary worlds !


    Most of us have chosen to study economics so as to
    acquire a deep understanding of the economic phenomena with which the
    citizens of today are confronted. But the teaching that is offered,
    that is to say for the most part neoclassical theory or approaches
    derived from it, does not generally answer this expectation. Indeed,
    even when the theory legitimately detaches itself from contingencies in
    the first instance, it rarely carries out the necessary return to the
    facts. The empirical side (historical facts, functioning of
    institutions , study of the behaviors and strategies of the agents . .
    . ) is almost nonexistent. Furthermore, this gap in the teaching, this
    disregard for concrete realities, poses an enormous problem for those
    who would like to render themselves useful to economic and social
    actors.


    2. We oppose the uncontrolled use of mathematics !


    The instrumental use of mathematics appears necessary.
    But resort to mathematical formalization when it is not an instrument
    but rather an end in itself, leads to a true schizophrenia in relation
    to the real world. Formalization makes it easy to construct exercises
    and to manipulate models whose significance is limited to finding "the
    good result" (that is, the logical result following from the initial
    hypotheses) in order to be able to write "a good paper". This custom,
    under the pretence of being scientific, facilitates assessment and
    selection, but never responds to the question that we are posing
    regarding contemporary economic debates.


    3. We are for a pluralism of approaches in economics !


    Too often the lectures leave no place for reflection.
    Out of all the approaches to economic questions that exist, generally
    only one is presented to us. This approach is suppose to explain
    everything by means of a purely axiomatic process, as if this were THE
    economic truth. We do not accept this dogmatism. We want a pluralism of
    approaches, adapted to the complexity of the objects and to the
    uncertainty surrounding most of the big questions in economics
    (unemployment, inequalities, the place of financial markets, the
    advantages and disadvantages of free-trade, globalization, economic
    development, etc.)


    4. Call to teachers : wake up before it is too late !


    We appreciate that our professors are themselves
    subject to some constraints. Nevertheless, we appeal to all those who
    understand our claims and who wish for change. If serious reform does
    not take place rapidly, the risk is great that economics students,
    whose numbers are already decreasing, will abandon the field in mass,
    not because they have lost interest, but because they have been cut off
    from the realities and debates of the contemporary world.


    We no longer want to have this autistic science imposed on us.
    We do not ask for the impossible, but only that good sense may prevail. We hope, therefore, to be heard very soon.
