Students, too, are beginning to ask probing questions in their economics classes. They want to debate the fundamental assumptions. They want to understand the sorry state of the planet, the linkage between the economy and climate change, between consumption and the fate of the Amazon. They have caught on to how the accepted textbooks fail to address the key issues of our era.
