when 24 June 2019 - 28 June 2019
language English
duration 1 week
credits 3 EC
fee EUR 1200

Standard economics has been the subject of many critiques. Mainstream economic models and analysis rely on a level of sophistication that is hard to justify from an introspective viewpoint but also considering the large body of experimental evidence. Recent years have witnessed a flurry of alternative approaches. The programme proposes reviewing a large body of these approaches, with the goal of stimulating new research both theoretical and applied.
