Tanulságos történet a Heterodox Közgazdaságtani Hírlevélből:

Just back from a deeply depressing staff meeting, at which we learned that the Deputy VC (Research) intends to actively discourage staff from publishing in B-ranked journals, on the grounds that ‘it will pull down the average’. When implemented (as it will be), this will eradicate heterodox economics (and HET) altogether…..A longer-term cloud on the horizon is staff support for compulsory (mainstream micro, macro, econometrics) coursework for all new PhD students, which will eradicate heterodox research students too. When I pointed out the effect on anyone doing research in HET or political economy (all 4 of my current PhD students), it was suggested that they might be exempted because they are ‘not doing economics’.
