Revisiting the History & Evolution of Economic Thought. 
Precis: "Practical men, who believe themselves to be quite exempt from any intellectual influences, are usually the slaves of some defunct economist..." (Todd Buccholz, author of New Ideas from Dead Economists). As much as many of us hate economists, we all love to sound like one. Some simplify arguments that limit people's choices between the left and the right, between the government and the market or, worse, between two political parties. By reflecting on the origins and evolution of economic thought, we will endeavour to widen our gaze beyond such limited binary thinking and open new directions in economic discourse.
