A three-week college and university teacher institute for twenty-five participants to explore the history of economic thought.

The proposed three week Institute will trace the development of economic thought from the middle ages to the middle of the last century. The larger purpose of the Institute is to renew professional interest among economists in the intellectual history of their discipline, and thereby to reintroduce the subject into the undergraduate curriculum. The intended audience is economics faculty who may desire to teach the subject but who do not have the background to do so. The goal of the Summer Institute, then, is to develop undergraduate teachers of the history of economic thought.
