Abstract

In the midst of a climate crisis and growing social inequity, our economic mindset must adapt to our current reality. While some form of introductory economics is taken by 40% of undergraduate students across the US, these courses are not centered around the environmental and social contexts that researchers have shown affect our economy. This work is an entry into the discussion on mainstream economics and its effects on slowing down progress on climate change.
