What is Heterodox Economics?
Heterodox Economics is an umbrella term covering various strands of economic thought as well as a series of interdisciplinary research fields. While heterodox economics is internally highly diversified, most heterodox economists agree on certain conceptual definitions (e.g. doing economics is to study the process of social provisioning in a broad sense), theoretical foundations (e.g. the role of uncertainty in economic action or the importance of the principles of effective demand and endogenous money) and a common epistemological framework, that takes the form of pluralist engagement.
These commonalities imply that heterodox economists do not necessarily reject any analysis based on the "holy trinity" of conventional economics, i.e. scarcity, rationality and equilibrium, but contest that, as in the current state of the economic discipline, economic research should always assume this holy trinity as the only relevant starting point for economic thought. Hence, while heterodox economics is on the one hand simply an open-minded, interested and critical starting point for analyzing economic issues, it also serves as a common denominator for those economic views, which are increasingly marginalized within the economics' profession.
