Super Programm fuer Menschen die an heterodoxen Theorien und dem Vergleich zur Neoklassik interessiert sind. Starker Fokus auf Theorie und (wenn gewuenscht) Modellierung. wenig Fokus auf Oekonometrie. Kingston ist teil einer lebendigen heterodoxen community in London mit regelmaessigen Konferenzen und Workshops in Kingston und anderen Universitaeten (University of Greenwich, SOAS, Goldsmith, etc).
