The new Department of Economics and Policy Studies (ECOP) is a community of
scholars and teachers who share a goal of offering diverse perspectives for diverse
audiences to help solve the economic and social problems facing humanity. We believe this goal can best be achieved by pursuing research with a variety of theoretical and methodological approaches; by teaching undergraduate and graduate courses that creatively blend ethical concerns and an understanding of real world institutions, recall lessons from the history and philosophy of economic thought, and apply theory in empirical investigations of policy alternatives; and by engaging in dedicated service in public arenas inside and outside the academy. The success of our endeavors depends on disciplinary expertise and interdisciplinary partnerships. ECOP’s pioneering approach sees research, education, and service as complementary activities in providing a forum wherein scholars, students, and practitioners will be able to understand the usefulness of diverse approaches to economics for finding solutions to multifaceted domestic and global issues. This document outlines the steps we plan to take in each of these three areas over the next five years.
A escola que pensa a economia como uma ciência humana

A apresentação encomendada está dividida em duas partes: na primeira, busco caracterizar o neoliberalismo e, na segunda, trato da formação do economista.
Caracterização do Neoliberalismo
A compreensão da situação econômica atual, numa perspectiva que entende o capitalismo como um sistema mundial, requer de início, necessariamente, uma comparação entre os "anos dourados" que se seguiram ao término da II Guerra Mundial (1945-1970) e os "anos opacos" das duas últimas décadas do século XX. Entre esses dois períodos, os anos 70 são considerados de crise e de transição, tanto no plano econômico como no plano político. Já no início do século XXI tem-se novamente uma situação fluída em que se nota um certo desgaste do neoliberalismo – ainda amplamente hegemônico – e em que se ensaia – ainda timidamente – um crescente movimento de contestação.
