Notes

Abstract: Neoclassical theory has dominated economic thought for the greater part of the century. An orthodoxy exists within neoclassical economics, an unfortunate effect of which is that neoclassical economists are not taught how to critique neoclassicism. The post-autistic movement seeks to implement changes in the education of economics pupils, conferring on them myriad perspectives, and reminding them of the importance of context and applicability in their economic endeavors. The methodology of postautistic economics excludes the adoption of a specific set of principles through which to analyze problems. Rather, it focuses on contexts and applicability, abandoning methods that ignore these aims and implementing whatever set of principles must effectively and accurately solves the problem. The movement does not seek to overthrow any specific framework, only those that do not meet these standards of analysis. What makes Giffen behavior a good candidate for post-autistic study is its seemingly paradoxical nature in relation to the 'laws' of demand postulated by earlier economic theorists in combination with the rarity of its occurrence. Standard explanations and arguments have been presented within the neoclassical framework; stepping outside of this construction allows a fuller examination of its internal consistency and the suitability of the framework to the context of this issue.
