Why Marxist economics should be taught but probably won’t be!

By Peter H. Clarke and Andrew Mearman


An argument will be made for the teaching of Marxist\ud economics. This will draw upon the intrinsic and instrumental aims of education, as well as other\ud literature in education. A case is made that Marxist\ud economics should be taught. This is based on Marxist\ud arguments against the orthodoxy, namely that it serves\ud capitalist interests; and also educational arguments\ud and the perceived ability of Marxist economics to meet\ud educational aims. It then moves on to discuss why it\ud is unlikely that Marxist economics will be taught in\ud this way
