Dentists Need a Licence to Practice. Why not Economists?

“It’s easier to become an economist than a dentist, or a doctor or a lawyer. For those and other professions you need to be accredited – you need a licence to practice.

Diversity and Excellence [in Economics]: Not A Zero Sum Game

“The lack of pluralism of economic theories and methodologies has been a problem for a long time, but it became particularly obvious in the wake of the global financial crisis. A decade later, there is still much to be done to open up spaces for alternative economic approaches.

We believe these two forms of diversity deficits must be tackled together. Below we outline our plan for doing so. “

But they have different views on what pluralism is and means to economics and diversity.”
