Confessions of a heterodox economist
Professorial inaugural lecture by Andrew Wood, Professor and Head of Accounting and Financial Management, University of Portsmouth.
When Professor Wood first encountered economics, the discipline was dominated by a highly abstract and theoretical approach that aped a ‘scientific method’. In response, he adopted a heterodox approach to understanding the economic phenomenon, not conforming with accepted or orthodox standards or beliefs. In this lecture, he explains how his approach has evolved, and how the mainstream has also transformed.
