On the Playground: Did your teaching change in response to the crisis?

The kind of economics taught in graduate schools was the main contributor to the current crisis, claims Anatole Kaletsky - a statement that begs the question: Has economics teaching changed in response to the current crisis?

Brad DeLong admits that before the crisis he felt unease teaching models of irrational bubbles, simply because those models are not "clean" and "do not hang together." He and Anatole Kaletsky would like to see more behavioral economics in the curriculum, models with realistic psychology. Others, like Jean-Paul Fitoussi, Ha-Joon Chang, and Stephen Ziliak, explain why their teaching remained largely what it was before the crisis. But see yourself. Click here to watch the video
