Some of the questions the panel will address are:

-What defines us as heterodox economists and is there any commonality in vision besides opposition to the mainstream?

-Is the term heterodox even useful? Using the term heterodox automatically defines us as in opposition to some perceived orthodoxy. However, this necessitates defining exactly what modern orthodoxy is. How can we define the mainstream today? What exactly are we battling?

-Has the crisis created more space for heterodox economics in academia and policy and can we find a common vision for expanding the presence of heterodox economics in academia?

-What kind of room does the changing global landscape create for heterodox ideas?
