Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Dropping some of the ridiculous assumptions and treating the firm in a way that is recognizable to anyone that has practical experience in business, especially if at least discussed in early economics courses, might start to make the discipline more relevant to other departments. So much of what makes it into blogs and media seems to show economists adopting an attitude of "look how ridiculous and off-putting we can be!" This is likely part of why so many business schools only require one intro economics course.
