This paper provides a critical re-examination of Rubinstein’s survey (Rubinstein; Economic Journal 2006), in which he questions the way economics is taught. The observations obtained in our new survey cast some doubts on the original findings, and, in particular, question Rubinstein’s conjecture that our students’ views on economic issues are influenced by the way we teach economics.
