The main point of this heterodox branch of economics is to have an alternative view of economics that is completely different from the mainstream theories.

This is why a hothouse theory of economics is difficult to understand. For this reason, there are many resources available on this topic. At one end of the spectrum you have economic theories and their corresponding books that provide additional information and theoretical thinking behind each theory. At the other end of the spectrum, you have theories and booklets that have been deliberately written by advocates of these types of economics.
