I should clarify. They do teach neoclassical economics which is the inspiration for neoliberal economics. The difference being neoclassical economics in its pure form is accepted as having too strong assumptions and reality is quite different. It is a good learning tool and has value for assessing certain situations and making some general statements about economic tendencies. But you can’t use it to manage economies because it has massive shortcomings and it’s assumptions don’t hold.I've seen one or two economists on the Conversation articles when they ask 20 about the road to recovery etc that seem to be reading straight out of that playbook, but they are in the minority it seems.
Amazing how our policy decisions don't mirror what the majority of economists say would be the way to go
