Whose (Economic) Knowledge is it, Anyway?
Authorship and Official Knowledge
Keywords:Curriculum, economics education
This is a study of the politics of “official knowledge” in K-12 economics curriculum in the United States. The purpose of this study is to understand how reviews of literature both promote official knowledge and thus serve as useful sources of uncovering the authorship, or author-function at work in a social science discipline, which are usually thought to be anonymous and author-less.
