Sample text

That is, was the period characterized by doctrinal harmony or was it contested? And if it was contested, how did neoclassical economics maintain its dominance—was it indeed a better mousetrap or were other factors at work? To answer the question, it is necessary to start with the rise to dominance of neoclassical economics 1870 to 1900 and its organizational-academic dominance from 1900 to 1970, followed by an examination of the contested landscape and heretical theory from 1900 to 1940 and from 1945 to 1970, and ending with the use of department and journal rankings as the socialcontrol mechanism through which neoclassical dominance was maintained from 1970 to 2000.

19 In addition, during the Red Scare of 1919–20, universities and colleges, such as Barnard, Wellesley, Radcliffe, Chicago, Yale, Vassar, and Smith, were denounced as hotbeds of Bolshevism and radical institutions because the writings of Marx and Engels were required reading for their students; established academics, such as Ross, Commons, and John Dewey were branded parlor Reds while others were discharged from their institutions for their political beliefs and writings, because they agreed to speak at a Socialist Party rally, or sympathized with the ideas and agenda of the Industrial Workers of the World or even the Non-Partisan League; trustees and presidents in cooperation with the business community set up spy systems in their universities and colleges to identify the radical, unAmerican professors and students for dismissal; and a movement was launched to scrutinize economic textbooks for breaches of loyalty.

The approach was heretical but not blasphemous for Hamilton’s agenda was not to repudiate neoclassical price theory per se, but to give it a better, more modern conceptual-empirical grounding and refocus and enlarge its domain. 27 While Hamilton pursued a teaching agenda at Amherst College and the Brookings Graduate School that virtually excluded any formal training in neoclassical price theory and was clearly anti-neoclassical, Commons, Wesley Mitchell, John M. Clark, and other Institutionalists almost from the beginning made repeated statements that they were not disparaging neoclassical economists or repudiating neoclassical price theory but were trying to make the latter better.
