A puzzlement

Though I am interested in economics, and listen to Marketplace on NPR every evening, I cannot make any sense of this article -- I'm thinking it needs both a more general introduction and clearer organization -- many too many subheads! -- Just a thought from a Literature prof!

The scope of the article

The opening sentence suggests that the article includes everything that happened in economics since 1871. The inaccuracy of that statement becomes evident only when the reader has scanned the text.

It would seem a pity to delete an article into which so much work has gone, but one must sympathise with the previous comment: it is probably fully intelligible only to those already familiar with the concepts referred to.

I suggest that we review the situation when the article on the History of Economic Thought (which at present has no "neoclassical" heading, but covers some of the same ground under the heading of "The Marginalist Revolution") has been revised.
