The Disintegration of economics

Alex Millmow

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


The predominant concern of many Australian economics departments remains the declining popularity of the subject with undergraduates, relative to the continuing growth in business majors. If the decline persists, the continued diminution of economics within academe and the shrinkage of the once imperial discipline into irrelevance will be seen. Economists may be displaced or more likely reincarnated as business academics. This paper addresses that issue offering the latest evidence on the problem from the Australian perspective and how developments abroad may rescue the discipline
