Beeinflussung und Manipulation in der ökonomischen Bildung Hintergründe und Beispiele FGW-Studie Neues ökonomisches Denken 05 Persuasion and Propaganda in Economic Education -Background Knowledge and Examples
Abstract and Figures
Standard economics teaching has been subject to increasing scholarly critique claiming it to be either one-sided, detached from reality or an instrument of indoctrination. The following study attempts to systematically address and analyze possible forms of indoctrination. Drawing from two standard textbooks –Economics by Samuelson and Nordhaus as well as Mankiw’s Eco-nomics– a language and text-based analysis, based primarily on cognitive research methodol-ogy, provides a detailed elucidation of examples of unconscious forms of persuasion students are subjected to which do not match the neoclassical ideal of scientific objectivity. In addition, the following discusses whether a manipulation of students, in the sense of deliberate and covert influence of thought and perception processes is in fact taking place, while identifying future fields of research as well as possible new directions in economics education.
