Pluralist Resources 

Objective of the Project

 

 

This project aims to build a public repository of resources to support students and scholars in learning pluralist economics. The repository includes databases of various forms of resources including books, articles, videos, lectures, interviews and podcasts. The main focus is on works either oriented towards global south contexts or by scholars from the global south. Our team constantly updates the repository with new resources collated from various sources. 

What is Pluralist Economics? 

 

Pluralism, in contrast to mainstream economics, recognises and teaches a range of different approaches to understanding the economy and its interaction with wider social and political systems in an interactive, reflective and engaging manner. The ISIPE open letter [maybe add a link?] offers one of the more comprehensive definitions, and defines the 3P’s of Pluralism: Pluralism Theory; Pluralism of Method, and Interdisciplinary Pluralism. It encompasses the resources we peruse, methods used for analysis and study, exchange and critical examination of ideas and philosophies that are endorsed by people all over the world, and their coming together in a mutually respectful and academically representative tradition. Following from this, the Rethinking Economics movement hopes to build a space where an representative and comprehensive economics education can promote a balanced exposure to a variety of perspectives that cover not only the mainstream, neo-classical models, but also marginalised and excluded theories like those of Austrian, Marxist, Feminist, ecological, and other schools of thought. As a movement to build better economics in society & classrooms, RE India aims to become a medium of advocating pluralism in the academic & policy space of economics.

What are the resources we are looking for?

 

Resources can be of any type - books, blog articles, research articles, lecture series, online courses, movies, podcasts, websites, reports, interviews, talks etc. 


 

Key emphasis is placed on the following:

  • Work by Global South scholars

  • Relevant for Indian/Global South context (the work can be by anyone and not necessarily a Global South scholar)

 

Important considerations while selecting a resource: 

1.  Relevance - We function under a disciplinary anchor. In the process of suggesting to us a resource for publishing, kindly check if it interfaces with the economy and provides economic knowledge. The resource can approach an economic issue or school of thought from a multiplicity of points of view but should, nevertheless, be a topic, method or theory that is related to an economic phenomenon, problem(s), practice(s), structure(s), and system(s), whether in existence, the past or the future. 

2.   Perspective - We want to explicitly showcase resources originating from authors belonging to the  Global South.  This would mean that we are actively looking for perspectives and topics that focus on the Global South or countries/issues in the Global South. We are also on a constant lookout for material authored/created by indigenous people and people of colour and, hence, are striving to go beyond topical areas like critical theory to find resources authored/created by people of colour and indigenous people. The aim of this resource database is to educate. We also understand that narratives matter, but please do not suggest resources that are casteist, racist, sexist or are written/created by problematic authors/creators as alternatives to these resources are always available.
