This morning we received a very interesting and important email from a French colleague. This is a call of the French appalled economists for a meeting of critical economists in Firenze on the 10th of November. To quote the objective of this meeting,
we, the "appalled economists", want to build together with other existing European networks, as well as with all the economists who would like to take part in this process, a space for debate among critical economists in order to nourish the public debate with alternative economic analyses and proposals. We want to stimulate exchanges of views and experiences among the economists who are intervening in the public debate and/or within the profession in order to criticize neoliberal ideology, and better participate in the public debate and propose different analyses and different strategies.
Many readers of the Newsletter will find the following information of interest. An interdisciplinary journal, On the Horizon, has recently published a special issue on heterodox economics--“Beyond market-fundamentalist economics: An agenda for heterodox economics to change the dominant narrative”, edited by Tae-Hee Jo (Buffalo State College), Lynne Chester (University of Sydney), and Mary C. King (Portland State University). The publisher, Emerald, has set up a free access period (until September 18). To access this issue, go to here (username: onthehorizon, password: economics). Also note that there was another special issue on heterodox economics edited by Frederic Lee and Wolfram Elsner published in 2008 (“Publishing, refereeing, rankings, and the future of heterodox economics”). You can access this issue as well with the code above. If you want to purchase a print copy of the current speical issue, please let me (TJ) know (email@example.com).
Please make sure that graduate students are made aware of two opportunities to present or publish their work: first, the 4th Western States Graduate Workshop will be held October 20th at the University of Utah; and Oeconomicus (a students-only journal) has issued a call for papers.
Lastly, we want to remind heterodox economists attending the 2013 ASSA meeting (San Diego) that the registration will open on September 12, Wednesday. Most of the heterodox economics sessions/associations (AFEE, ASE, IAFFE, LERA, and URPE) are located in Marriott Marquis & Marina. Keep in mind that when registering, you should select the ASE (Association for Social Economics) membership box (even though you are not a member of ASE), otherwise your registration fee goes to the AEA.

During the recent world financial crisis new financial orders and practices have emerged. In this respect, we want to ask how the realm of International Political Economy has changed by focusing on two dimensions: spaces and agencies.
First, we are interested in how the financial crisis has affected regulatory spaces, be it at the global, regional, state, or local level. How has the financial crisis affected spatial orders? How has it created new or reconfigured existing spaces? What are recent developments in Europe and beyond?
Second, in line with the first dimension, new agencies and institutions have emerged within global finance. Some practices have disappeared but new entities have also been created. The evolution and reconfiguration of the shadow banking system is just one example of institutional dynamics within global finance.
Both dimensions present fundamental challenges to the discipline of IPE and reflect the struggle to describe and analyse evolving practices and orders during and after the world financial crisis.
These two dimensions in mind, we seek to combine, discuss and enhance recent research and therefore welcome applicants for the PhD School. We ask for abstracts of not more than 300 words until September 16th 2012 including your contact details; successful candidates will be notified by *September 20th*; short papers (2500 words) should be handed in no later than *October 1st*.
As part of the 2nd Annual Conference of the the COST Action (October 11th--13th and open to all participants) limited grants for travel and accommodation expenses will be possible as well as the publication of selected papers in line with the COST Action IS0902 Working Paper Series.

10th International conference of the European Society for Ecological Economics
18-21 June 2013 | Lille, France | website
Host Institutions: Centre Lillois; Etudes et Recherches Sociologiques et Economiques (CLERSE, UMR 8019, CNRS-Université Lille1) & Reims Economie Gestion Agro-Ressources et DurabilitéS (REGARDS, EA 6292, Université de Reims Champagne-Ardenne) In co-organisation with Université Libre de Bruxelles With the Partnership of RIODD (International Research Network on Organizations and Sustainable Development)
ESEE 2013 is organized by the European Society for Ecological Economics in collaboration with CLERSE (Université Lille1-CNRS, France) and REGARDS (Université de Reims Champagne-Ardenne, France).
Proposals for paper and poster presentations (abstracts with 1200 words with a summary of 800 characters) on any of the following Conference themes, and for the organisation of special sessions in the form of focused discussions/thematic sessions, are welcomed. A limited number of special sessions (10 to 15 maximum of the parallel and special sessions) can be organized in French.
The main theme of the conference is Ecological Economics and Institutional Dynamics. Institutions are considered here in their broader sense, including social representations, norms, rules of the game, collective action processes and power dimensions, forms and types of exploitation, informal and formal organizations, referring at large to governance aspects and dealing with the large spectrum of topics developed in the field of Ecological Economics. Abstracts and papers articulating social and environmental questions would be particularly appreciated. Of course, proposals dealing with questions outside of the general theme, but relevant with the agenda of ecological economics are welcomed.
Themes of the conference
A special attention will be dedicated to posters during the conference. Guided tours will be organized so as to leave time for poster presenters to briefly present their works. A best poster prize will be delivered by the scientific committee and conference participants will be actively invited to read the posters.
Pre-conference workshop (Reims, 17-18 June 2013)
PhD and Master students will be invited to participate to a pre-conference workshop organised at the Université Reims Champagne Ardenne, on June 17-18. A special transport will be organised to allow participants to the pre-conference workshop to reach Lille on time for the opening ceremony. More details will be available soon on the website of the conference.
Contact: Franck-Dominique Vivien : email@example.com
Policy Event (Brussels, 18 June 2013, 9AM-3PM)
In line with the focus on institutional dynamics of ESEE 2013, a pre-conference Policy Event will take place in Brussels focusing on the evolution of the modes, forms and depths of the institutionalisation of the (main) research questions of Ecological Economics to the EU-level policy making: Ecological Economics and the EU-level policy making: where do we stand in terms of interaction?
The Policy Event will strive towards a more inclusive comprehension of how ESEE’s core messages, paradigms and methodological stances find an echo in policy agendas at EU-level. In other words, how and to what degree Ecological Economics is institutionalized at the EU-level? The policy event will be organized by the Université Libre de Bruxelles (ULB-IGEAT) in collaboration with EU-institutions (EU Parliament and/or DG ENV&DG RTD). It will alternate a series of keynote speeches by high-level ESEE-members and policy actors with a series of presentations of emblematic ESEE-related (past and on-going) research projects and studies.
Brussels is at a mere 30 minute trip by high-speed train from Lille, which allows participants to join the conference opening in time.
Contact: Tom Bauler : firstname.lastname@example.org
Keynote speakers and roundtable participants will include Daniel W. Bromley, Michel Capron, Andrew Dobson, Florence Jany-Catrice, Inge Ropke, Elizabeth Shove, Clive Spash.

European University Institute 14th Mediterranean Research Meeting
20-23 March 2013 | Mersin, Turkey
Neoliberalism has been the dominant form of global capitalism since the early 1980s. Despite their political, historical, geographical and economic diversity, and their widely distinct modalities of integration into the world economy, this has also been the experience of several Mediterranean countries. Indeed, the tensions and displacements embedded within global neoliberalism are now nowhere more evident than in the Mediterranean region where they have led to a variety of political economic responses and/or regime changes. While the implementation of the neoliberal policy agenda has initiated a process of cumulative transformations in class relations and property rights, it has also propelled a variety of forms of resistance since it effectively undermined the ‘politics of redistribution’ which had hitherto seemed to characterize most of the countries across the region, albeit under different political regimes. Yet, the experiences of different Mediterranean countries seem to suggest a rather paradoxical outcome which requires further examination: the political and economic crises turn out to be the driving forces of neoliberal transformation as the outcome of these crises tends to be the reinforcement of the rule of neoliberalism.
This workshop is intended to provide a forum to discuss the impact of neoliberalism on both the state structures and the societal actors with a specific focus on the developments since the turn of the century across three main areas of the Mediterranean region: South European countries of the Eurozone, the ‘Arab Spring’ countries of North Africa and Eastern Mediterranean, and Turkey.
The sessions of the workshop will be planned so as to bring together participants working on different aspects of neoliberal transformation and its political, economic and social consequences in these three areas of the region. No doubt, there will be contributions by specialists residing within the region as well as outside it.
For more information, go to here or contact:

The Review of Keynesian Economics is planning a special issue on “Industrial organization, labor relations, and labor market outcomes.”
The theme of this issue is the investigation of the interconnections between business organization, labor relations, and labor market outcomes. We are primarily interested in papers that are institutionally and/or historically-grounded but which may also be comparative or empirical/econometric in nature. The editors encourage papers that connect industrial organization and/or business history with macroeconomic outcomes such as unemployment, labor productivity and productivity growth, choice of technology and capital intensity, the functional distribution of income, economic development, and growth.
This special issue will be published in April 2014, and will contain 7 articles. If interested in being considered for publication, please send an abstract of no more than 500 words, no later than December 15th, 2012. If accepted, final papers must be sent by September 30th, 2013.
Please send abstract to:

Associate Editor, Review of Keynesian Economics
More than 120 heads of state attended the United Nations Conference on Sustainable Development at Rio de Janeiro, Brazil from June 20 to 22, 2012 (also known as Rio +20 conference). About 50,000 people, including business executives, mayors, representatives of non-governmental organizations, youth, and indigenous people, participated in the conference. Officially, the conference intended to set the stage for the global community to recommit to sustainable development and take concrete actions. However, the conference accomplished nothing more than a weak affirmation of the earlier declaration agreed to by the United Nations summit in 1992. The conference was considered by environmental groups as an “epic failure.”
The United Nations conference took place as the global ecological crisis accelerates in almost every dimension and the various global ecological systems have overshot their natural limits. According to a paper co-authored by 29 of the world’s leading scientists, “Anthropogenic pressures on the Earth System have reached a scale where abrupt global environmental change can no longer be excluded.” The scientists identified nine planetary boundaries within which humanity can operate safely. According to the scientists, “transgressing one or more planetary boundaries may be deleterious or even catastrophic due to the risk of crossing thresholds that will trigger non-linear, abrupt environmental change within continental- to planetary-scale systems.” The scientists estimate that humanity has already transgressed three planetary boundaries: for climate change, rate of biodiversity loss, and changes to the global nitrogen cycle.
Despite the urgency of the global ecological crisis, the world’s governments, corporations, media, as well as mainstream academics continue to propagate the belief that resources depletion, water crisis, deforestation, desertification, air and water pollution, climate change, ocean acidification, and many other environmental problems can be contained and resolved within the basic institutional framework of capitalism, perhaps through a combination of “green” technologies and some enlightened social reform, if not the automatic self-adjustment of the free market.
Given this context, The Review of Radical Political Economics is going to publish a special issue on “Political Economy of Sustainable Development.” We invite papers that contribute to the discussion of any one of the following topics:
Submissions are due by April 1, 2013, and must follow the Instructions to Contributors listed in each issue of the Review, on the RRPE section of the URPE Website, or available from the managing editor. All submissions are subject to the usual review procedures, and they should not be under review with any other publication. We strongly encourage authors to send a brief title and abstract as soon as possible. Send an anonymous electronic version in Microsoft Word for PC format to Hazel Dayton Gunn, Managing Editor, firstname.lastname@example.org.

8th to 9th December 2012 | Erfurt, Germany
Supported by the "COST Action IS0902: Systemic Risks, Financial Crises and Credit" and the "University of Erfurt"
The global financial crisis has hit the European Union with a vengeance. What started as a bubble in the American real estate market has meanwhile become a crisis of public debt of historic proportions. Greece, Spain and Italy are on the brink of collapse and however the crisis will be solved, it will have a lasting impact on the European Union. This workshop wants to explore the consequences for Europe and look at the current crisis from different disciplines. We invite contributions from all social sciences. We are especially interested in bridging the gaps between European Studies, Political Economy and Political Theory.
Questions to be explored in this workshop are:
Please send abstracts (around 200 words) to email@example.com till 16th September 2012. The workshop will take place in Erfurt 08/09th December 2012. Costs will be reimbursed.

Reclaiming the Keynesian Revolution
See the preliminary program (pdf)
November 10, 2012 | Firenze | Download (English and French)
At a time when the capitalist countries in general, and the European countries in particular, are experiencing an unprecedented crisis, economists are being heavily solicited to make a diagnosis and propose solutions for "a way out of the crisis". But, in fact, almost all the economists who take part in this public debate share the same views. Among other things, they believe in the absolute superiority of the market as a form of social and economic organisation; the superiority of the criteria of assessment used by the financial markets; the necessity for Central Banks to be independent; and in competitiveness, which is to be achieved by reducing "labor costs" and government and social expenditures. These beliefs lead to the erroneous conviction that there is no alternative to austerity policies and that the current European model is the only one feasible. This neo-‐liberal viewpoint also dominates in universities and academic journals. Hence, the solutions advocated by the neoliberals are but a logical systematization of the economic policies that have been carried out over the past three decades and that have led to the current situation.
The current crisis is one of globalized financial capitalism. But it is not only economic, it is also a social, ecological and democratic crisis. In that sense, the solutions to the crisis will be not only economic. They will also have to be social, ecological and democratic. Genuine solutions will only emerge within the framework of a genuine democratic debate, in which a multiplicity of approaches is essential. In order that sustainable and democratic solutions might be found, this public debate needs to be fueled by critical economic viewpoints and analyses.
That is the reason why we, the "appalled economists", want to build together with other existing European networks, as well as with all the economists who would like to take part in this process, a space for debate among critical economists in order to nourish the public debate with alternative economic analyses and proposals. We want to stimulate exchanges of views and experiences among the economists who are intervening in the public debate and/or within the profession in order to criticize neo-‐liberal ideology, and better participate in the public debate and propose different analyses and different strategies.
We call on the economists who share these goals to gather in Firenze on November 10, 2012, at the same time as the "Firenze 10 + 10" European Forum (Fortezza da Baso). This meeting will offer the opportunity to build a network of critical economists wishing to discuss and put together common diagnoses and proposals on a European level.
The meeting could consist of three parts. The first part would be dedicated to examining the situation in each country of heterodox thought and of its interventions in both academic and public debates (the state of heterodox economy in the universities, participation in social and economic debates). The second part should make it possible to bring out subjects that can be worked on together: assessment of the current situation in Europe and our proposals, the debt crisis, monetary policy, bank lending and its selectivity, the future of employment and production in Europe, public utilities, social protection, and the ecological transition. A third part will make it possible to decide on the tools required to put together the network (website, creating a secretariat for the network in charge of pooling and circulating the studies and the papers of members, etc.) and to take common initiatives (series of European conferences in several cities, common publications, writing of a Manifesto, etc.).
If you want to participate in this meeting in Firenze, please write and give your name, your university or institution, your contact information and the subjects you are working on (or those you think are essential in the current context) to the following e-‐mail address: firstname.lastname@example.org

Arbeitskreis Real World Economics
Vom 9. bis 12. September wird der Verein für Socialpolitik seine Jahrestagung in Göttingen abhalten, die als das wohl wichtigste themenübergreifende Treffen von Ökonomen in Deutschland anzusehen ist. Wir finden es auch angesichts der andauernden Finanz- und Staatsschuldenkrise sehr bedauerlich, dass auf der Vereinstagung traditionell – und im Unterschied zu beispielsweise den amerikanischen ASSA-Tagungen – kaum Raum für die Diskussion pluralistischer bzw. heterodoxer Ansätze und Themen besteht.
Deshalb hat sich das Netzwerk Real World Economics (früher: Arbeitskreis Postautistische Ökonomie) dazu entschlossen, am 10. und 11. September ergänzende Panels mit heterodoxen Themen in unmittelbarer örtlicher Nähe zur Vereinstagung anzubieten. Dafür konnten bereits viele heterodoxe Wissenschaftler gewonnen werden, darunter Peter Bofinger, Heiner Flassbeck und Max Otte.
Wir hoffen, mit dieser Veranstaltung eine offene Plattform für heterodoxe Ökonomie zu bieten, einen Austausch mit dem Mainstream näherstehenden Ökonomen zu ermöglichen, sowie ein öffentliches Zeichen für pluralistische volkswirtschaftliche Forschung und Lehre zu setzen.

Tim Di Muzio of the University of Wollongong has just launched an online journal: Review of Capital as Power (RECASP). The journal is available for free under the Creative Commons license.
FROM THE STATEMENT OF PURPOSE: The framework of 'capital as power' offers a radical alternative to both liberal and Marxist political economies. In this framework, capital is viewed not as a productive economic entity, but as the central power institution of capitalist society at large, while capitalism as a whole is seen not as mode of production and consumption, but as a mode of power.

Contending Economic Theories offers a unique comparative treatment of the three main theories in economics as it is taught today: neoclassical, Keynesian, and Marxian. Each is developed and discussed in its own chapter, yet also differentiated from and compared to the other two theories. The authors identify each theory’s starting point, its goals and foci, and its internal logic. They connect their comparative theory analysis to the larger policy issues that divide the rival camps of theorists around such central issues as the role government should play in the economy and the class structure of production, stressing the different analytical, policy, and social decisions that flow from each theory’s conceptualization of economics.
The authors, building on their earlier book Economics: Marxian versus Neoclassical, offer an expanded treatment of Keynesian economics and a comprehensive introduction to Marxian economics, including its class analysis of society. Beyond providing a systematic explanation of the logic and structure of standard neoclassical theory, they analyze recent extensions and developments of that theory around such topics as market imperfections, information economics, new theories of equilibrium, and behavioral economics, considering whether these advances represent new paradigms or merely adjustments to the standard theory. They also explain why economic reasoning has varied among these three approaches throughout the twentieth century, and why this variation continues today--as neoclassical views give way to new Keynesian approaches in the wake of the economic collapse of 2008.

Following global material chains, this groundbreaking book reveals astonishing connections between persons, households, cities and global regions as objects are reworked, taken to pieces and traded. With case studies from Africa, Latin America, South Asia, China, the former Soviet Union, North America and Europe, Economies of Recycling shows how marginal economies are producing new social collectives and projects around local and global decay, often with waste labour bringing high monetary reward as well as danger.

This book is available online here.
Michael Roberts new and ground-breaking book is available in full online. Roberts is an economist who has worked in the City of London for 30 years. He predicted the Great Recession several years before it happened and in this book he explains why the Great Recession happened, based on Marxist analysis of the laws of motion of capitalism. Roberts offers an original analysis of the capitalist economic system based on the conjunction of various cycles of motion in construction, manufacturing and financal markets, but with Marx's profitability cycle as the driver of all. Roberts also generates empirical evidence to support the Marxist analysis with the most comprehensive data yet on the rate of profit, not only for the US economy, but also in other major capitalist countries.

This unique and original book offers a critical survey of the regulation approach, an influential theoretical school born in the 1970s and belonging to the neo-Marxist and radical political economy traditions.
The author’s persuasive argument is that regulation, in order to explain capitalist development, resorts to historicism and institutionalism and thereby adopts a ‘middle-range’ methodology. He contends that both its theoretical and methodological perspectives are currently unfit for this purpose.
This novel critique of regulation will prove a challenging and stimulating read for academics, researchers and graduate students with an interest in heterodox economics, the history of economic thought, political economy, regional development and labour process theory.

In this timely and thought-provoking book, Eckhard Hein illustrates that the Great Recession, which hit the world economy in 2008/09, is rooted in the contradictions of finance-dominated capitalism. The author provides an in-depth exploration of the macroeconomics of finance-dominated capitalism, its problems and its crisis, and presents economic policy lessons and alternatives. In particular, he shows that since the early 1980s, finance-dominated capitalism has affected long-run economic developments via three distinct channels:
The author concludes that against the background of these basic macroeconomic tendencies, increasing instability potentials at the national economy levels and rising current account imbalances at both global and European levels have developed and have contributed to the severity of the Great Recession.
This systematic study of finance-dominated capitalism presented from a macroeconomic perspective will prove a thought-provoking read for academics, researchers, graduate students and economic policy consultants with an interest in macroeconomics, financial economics, economic policies, and distribution and growth.

Market Society: History, Theory, Practice explores the social basis of economic life, from the emergence of market society in feudal England to the complex and interwoven markets of modern capitalist society. This lively and accessible book draws upon a variety of theories to examine the social structures at the heart of capitalist economies. It considers how capitalism is constituted, the institutions that regulate economic processes in market society and the experience of living in contemporary market societies. Market Society: History, Theory, Practice provides students of both political economy and economic sociology with a more nuanced understanding of how markets and people interact and how this relationship has influenced the nature and structure of modern economies.

In recent years a new approach to macroeconomics has been developed that challenges conventional wisdom and uncovers how money 'works' in the modern economy. This book synthesises the key principles of Modern Money Theory, exploring macro accounting, currency regimes and exchange rates in both the USA and developing nations. Randall Wray addresses the pressing issues of how misunderstandings about the nature of money have caused the current global financial meltdown, and provides fresh ideas about how policymakers around the world should address the continued weaknesses in their economies.

Has the economic and financial crisis changed the way we conduct monetary policy? Is quantitative easing consistent with the endogeneity of money? These are but two of the questions this new book explores. The various contributors offer interesting and new perspectives on the conduct of monetary policy during the crisis, and provide sharp criticism of central bank policies in the US and Europe.

This new volume explores two alternative economic theories – the classical theory and the marginalist or neoclassical theory- through a discussion between two eminent economists, Pierangelo Garegnani and Paul Samuelson.
The key themes of the volume are the difference in approaches to the explanation of the distribution of income and relative prices, and therefore different approaches to all other economic problems, in particular capital accumulation and economic growth. The book discusses whether there is a ‘classical’ approach to the theory of value and distribution at the core of economic theory that is fundamentally different from the later marginalist or neoclassical theory. In the volume, the late Pierangelo Garegnani argues for the validity of Piero Sraffa’s position on this issue, whilst the late noble laureate Paul Samuelson vehemently contests it.
At a time of economic crisis, the future of the discipline is far from certain, and so it is extremely important to bring these debates back into the light, by reproducing them together for the first time. A comprehensive introduction by Heinz Kurz sets the debate in this context, and provides crucial background to the arguments.

I don't mean our little group of activist friends. I mean us, the people of this country, our stories, our hardships, our triumphs, our injustices, our tragedies, our humor. This is radically different from what you'll see at your local movie theater". - David Swanson, MichaelMoore.com
