The Society of Heterodox Economists (SHE) represents a gathering of economists outside the mainstream, who believe that the study of the discipline of economics goes beyond the study of mainstream theory in its present state of development and the application of purely quantitative techniques to the formation of judgments on qualitative questions.
To actively promote our view that awareness of a variety of economics theories is a requirement of professional competence, we have established a structure around the Society of Heterodox Economists which would provide a formal body to lobby on behalf of heterodox economists.
