New Paper by Geert L Dhondt, Mathieu Dufour, Jay Hamilton, & Ian J. Seda-Irizarry

From the abstract:

The article first focuses on the need for alternative curriculums in the context of the global crisis and the crisis of economics as a discipline.

Finally, there is a discussion of institutional constraints.
