You know what I really liked about Econ? It wasn't macroeconomics. I actually learned very little about macroeconomics - not entirely my fault. It had to be the (visiting) professor's first time teaching (over from Iceland). We couldn't understand him and he was very soft-spoken and I could barely pronounce his name. A whisper and an accent. I learned very little, and it all seemed as if economists spent 50 years crawling down an attractive rabbit hole.
I did take a course on the History of Economic Thought, which was very revealing. I will probably never read another 500-page book in my life, but I read "The Origin of Wealth" - a bit about evolutionary economics, but mostly it just challenged and looked for solutions to the field's weaknesses. The next time you're thinking, "I just want a good 500-page book on heterodox economics...", this book's for you. Or, if a course syllabus lists it, I guess I'd recommend it.
"That won't be necessary. I am the agenda."
