They’ll be mentioning hegemonic relations next, if not class antagonism.
This closing down of the discussion of alternative analyses is exemplified by the revolt of economics students against being taught exclusively the (manifestly untenable) neoclassical orthodoxies, and their demands that alternative theories – those of Marx, Adam Smith and Keynes – should be included in their curriculums.
Snigger. Keynes most definitely is taught to them: I actually checked the curriculum for that. And Smith will be there of course: as the foundation of much of this neoliberalism. And why would Marx be taught in an economics course? A philosophy one, perhaps, a history of failed ideas certainly, but economics?
