Rethinking Economics: Video lectures HET for secondary schools

Coordinators: Antonio MagliuloFiorenza Manzalini

For the past few years, there has been an increasing collaboration between secondary schools and universities, both in order to support the education of young students – with PTSO (Pathway for Transversal Skills and Orientation) or quality disciplinary insights – and in order to create opportunities for the orientation in the academic environment.

For this reason, AISPE has decided to organize a series of self-produced HET video lectures aimed at students as well as teachers of secondary schools. The aim is to publicize and promote HET through the production of materials for self-training and Integrated Digital Didactics, designed as an opportunity for intersection with curricular disciplines (e.g., history, philosophy, literature, mathematics, etc.) and prepared in a way suitable for the audience of secondary school students.

Each lesson can be enriched by materials, readings or bibliographic sources.

Below, we propose a possible rundown of essential topics for a basic training course, and invite you to participate by choosing (or adding) one or more topics from those not covered yet:

  1. Introduction by A. Magliulo
  2. Greco-Roman thought
  3. Judeo-Christian thought and Islamic thought
  4. Scholasticism and economic justice
  5. Mercantilism and economic nationalism
  6. Physiocracy and the origin of wealth
  7. English classics by D. Parisi
  8. Adam Smith and the Wealth of Nations by S. Fiori
  9. Ricardo and Say: the conditions for a balanced development of capitalism
  10. The heterodox Malthus and Sismondi: the crises of capitalism
  11. The classical synthesis of J.S. Mill
  12. Karl Marx by A. Le Donne
  13. The Marginalists by M. Mosca
  14. Neoclassical Alfred Marshall by F. Masini
  15. Vilfredo Pareto and Maffeo Pantaleoni by F. Mornati
  16. Thorstein Veblen by G. Forges Davanzati
  17. Institutionalism for a critique of orthodox economics by A. Morselli
  18. Keynes and the birth of modern macroeconomics
  19. Hayek and the Austrian school of economics
  20. Milton Friedman and the Chicago school by G. Becchio
