What is heterodox and what is orthodox?


What is heterodox and what is orthodox?

That's one big question that I want to answer before I graduate.

After all, if Larry Summers, Paul Krugman, Joe Stiglitz, Dani Rodrik, Branko Milanovic, Thomas Piketty, George Akerlof and Paul Romer are the great thinkers and Nobel-winners who lead their discipline and represent economics to the public, shouldn't they be considered orthodox?

Here's some links to get me going, and hopefully I remember to come back here and actually read this stuff:

Jo Mitchell - on heterodox macroeconomics.

Noah Smith - economics without math is trendy.

Simon Wren-Lewis - heterodox and mainstream macroeconomics.

Lars Syll - dumb and dumber in modern macroeconomics.

Leigh Tesfatsion - agent-based economics: basic issues.
