In this note, I argue for an economics education which incorporates the ideas of embeddedness, interdependence, and necessaries, all visible in the works of the classical political economists. These ideas are often found in non-mainstream courses such as history of economic thought and political economy but are absent in mainstream microeconomics and macroeconomics. Subsequently, the need for pluralism in economic theory and methods is advocated, all the while keeping the socioeconomic surroundings of the learner at the centre of educational planning and practice.
