Interesting article by Dr William Coleman on the "anti-economics" movement.

Coleman says, among other things: "I want to put the possibility — not the likelihood, but the genuine possibility — that anti-economics could succeed. I want to put the possibility that economics — real economics — might die. Why do I say this? Because real economics has died before. "


"...despite the strength of its heritage in economics, from the time of the formation of German Empire in 1870, economics (as it is ordinarily understood) died. It was replaced by the German Historical School of Economics (GHS), led by Gustav von Schmoller..." hat tip to ASI
