There is a demand for Keynes among Mankiw’s students

November 9, 2011

As the walk out of 70 students from Prof. Mankiw’s class illustrates, there is a demand for “alternative approaches” to economics. Here you can read a summary of the events as well as the open letter to Prof. Mankiw, in which the students explicitely state their demand for Keynesian economics.

Together with Larry Summer’s statement (see the previous post) the walk out shows evidence for a growing discontent with the homogenization of economic programs.
