Heterodox economics refers to a relatively small but growing movement among economists who are seeking to gain acceptance of their ideas into mainstream economic thinking and scholarly discourse. Thinkers within the movement seek to organize various economic traditions, including post-Keynesianism, old institutionalism, feminist, social, and Marxian and Austrian economics under its new umbrella, according to the movement's view of what such traditions hold in common. In doing so, the heterodox economics movement seeks to distinguish its conceptualizations from what it views as "mainstream economics", which the movement engages yet opposes on some fundamental concepts.
