Dear Jairo,

I would add intellectual/institutional path-dependency within academia ( and citation-metrics-based research evaluation ( to the list of reasons for the absence of change in economics curricula.

Dear all,
I hope all of you are doing well. I am working in a paper about the teaching of Economics in Colombia, and I would like to get some references about this question: Despite the financial crisis of 2008, most of Economics Department keep teaching only Neoclassical Economics. I would like to hear your opinions about the reason for that: Only vested interests?

Best regards,
Jairo J. Parada, PhD.
