Heterodox Economics Newsletter

Issue 286 October 04, 2021 web pdf Heterodox Economics Directory

Some months ago, I used these lines to put out a call for volunteers willing to support this Newsletter. It was quite incredible (and also a little unexpected) to receive some enthusiastic replies. After some correspondences and inetrviews we selected two additional persons to complement an already astonishing group so that, together, we might become something truly awesome – an editorial team.

As the formal purpose of this editorial is to introduce this new team to you, let me just add that I myself will, of course, stay true to the task at hand and act as the main editor of our new team. Hence, in what follows the focus is on the other team members – formerly dubbed “editorial assistants” –, who are the hidden soul of this Newsletter.

As Bertrand Russell once said there are only two types of work: to move things around or to order others to move things around. In this context, it should be emphasized that in what follows we introduce the people, who do the real work and translate hundreds of pieces of information out of an overwhelming number of emails into a digestible Newsletter – every three weeks. These are the heroes that bring order into chaos (with just a little supervision ;-) and as main editor I am nothing but happy and relieved to have met these great colleagues on the way.

First hero to introduce is Niklas Klann, a BA student in Political Science at the University Duisburg-Essen. Niklas got into economics by means of one of his electives, which I happened to teach. Since then, he has developed some fascination for economic topics and has a deep interest for the underlying mechanisms governing growth, resource-use and distributional tendencies in modern capitalism with a special focus on the advent of AI. At the same Niklas is a highly concerned and active citizen and contributes to environmental and social movements. He is soon to enroll in Duisburg-Essen’s MA program in Socio-Economics and will hence remain attached to the field.

Next is Johanna Rath, who is a PhD student in Economics and research fellow at the Institute for Comprehensive Analysis of the Economy (ICAE) at Johannes Kepler University Linz (Austria). There she contributes to the project “Spatial Competition and Economic Policies” (SPACE) funded by the Austrian science fund. She holds a BA in Economics and MSc in Political Economy from Karl-Franzens-University Graz (Austria) and is currently enrolled in an MA program entitled “Political, Economic and Legal Philosophy”. She was co-founder of the Students Network of Plural Economics at the University Graz and has been co-organizing events for the Network for almost 5 years. Her main research interests include institutions, especially the role of social norms in transitional processes as well as competition as a prime mode of social organization and processes of capital accumulation and (market) concentration.

Thirdly, our first newcomer is Alexander Cruz Maldonado, who received his baccalaureate and his master’s degree in Economics from the University of Puerto Rico, Rio Piedras where he also worked as a research assistant focused on topics of local economic development and inequality. From his research at the University of Puerto Rico, Alexander co-authored a paper on the increasing poverty trend in Puerto Rico from 2005 to 2012 and produced an award-winning research poster on the effects of the CAFTA-DR trade agreement on Puerto Rico’s economy. His most recent work, presented as the thesis project for his master’s degree, focuses on the major trends of economic thought which had developed in the US from the rise of neoliberalism in the 1980s and leading up to the 2008 Financial Crisis. Currently, Alexander works as a Senior Quantitative Analyst at a local bank in San Juan Puerto Rico.

Finally, and also new to the team, Alam G. Galicia-Robles (Mexico) studied Economics (undergraduate and master's degrees) from the Meritorious Autonomous University of Puebla (BUAP). Since the beginning of his professional studies, he was attracted to the classical and Keynesian visions of economics. He also has a passion for urban and regional government fostered by entering working life in the governments of the city and state where he lives. For him a plural and open stance on the discipline is more appropriate than having a single dominant theory, as he was taught in his early years: "a heterodox economist has a longer and more burdensome path to take than those who decide to admit the dominant paradigm without any criticism: on the one hand he has to study and understand the mainstream and on the other, learn, reflect and propose something new from the heterodox trench". He joined the HEN team in 2021 as he really enjoys reading, editing, and collaborating for a bigger cause: the unorthodox community. For him, every person deserves dignity, respect and to be heard. From Latin America, he tells us: here we also do economics, here we also exist and resist.

The main aim of these changes in our organizational setup is to try to envisage the Newsletter more as a global collaborative effort, which is open for different perspectives and ideas. These people, so remote and close at the same time, make it possible for me to regularly read, explore, share, and learn more about issues in heterodox economics. Of course, there are also many core duties related to the Newsletter, which always require an additional hand ;-) In case you also want to support our work with your time, you can always send us an email and we can explore together how this might work out. In case you would prefer to support our efforts financially you can do so by donating here.

Many thanks and all the best,

8th Conference of the Latin American Society for the History of Economic Thought

20-22 April 2022 | Montevideo, Uruguay (hybrid structure proposed)

The 8th conference of the Latin American Society for the History of Economic Thought (ALAHPE) will be hosted by Universidad de la Republica in Montevideo, Uruguay. This edition's theme will be Doing HET from LAC: superiorities, empires, and all the rest. The aim is to stimulate researchers to reflect on the specificities of doing HET research from Latin America. Scholars of economic ideas from LAC are encouraged to engage the literature on imperialism and the superiority of economists to pursue their interdisciplinary/multidisciplinary and theoretical/empirical implications. We are also interested in receiving contributions reflecting a wide scope of approaches to the History of Economic Thought, and to social studies of science. Contributions exploring the diffusion of economic ideas through the work of leading scholars, politicians, or other relevant actors are particularly welcome (for example, addressing the long-run impacts of the Chicago School). As usual, proposals on all subjects in the history of economic thought are also welcome.

Given the uncertainty of the present circumstances, the meeting will have a combined virtual and in-person structure. Nonetheless, the organizers will monitor the situation attentively and the exact format will be broadly communicated by December 2021.

For more information or to submit individual paper proposals, please visit the conference page. To submit a thematic session proposal, please contact alahpe2021@fcea.edu.uy directly.

Call for Papers: Asian Economic Development Conference on "Inclusive, Sustainable Recovery in Asia and the Pacific” (Tokyo, July 2022)

14-15 July 2022 | Tokyo, Japan

The Asian Development Bank and the Asian Development Bank Institute will hold the inaugural Asian Economic Development Conference on 14–15 July 2022 in Tokyo. The objective of the conference is to promote the discussion of high-quality, frontline research on Asian development among social scientists, development practitioners, and policy makers.

The fallout from the COVID-19 pandemic threatens to undermine the decades of progress the region has made in raising living standards and eliminating poverty. The theme of the conference, “Inclusive, Sustainable Recovery in Asia and the Pacific,” will showcase cutting-edge research that explores how the efforts to rebuild after the crisis can also be opportunities to make development more inclusive and help achieve climate goals. Keynote speakers include Rema Hanna (Harvard University), Xin Meng (Australian National University), and Yasuyuki Sawada (University of Tokyo).

We invite submissions of unpublished empirical studies, survey articles, historical analyses, and policy-oriented research that advance the understanding of inclusive and sustainable growth in Asia’s recovery. Topics relevant to the theme include, but are not limited to, the following:

Interested authors must register and submit a paper 2022 here. The paper should include authors’ affiliations and contact information.

Submissions will be evaluated in terms of originality, analytical rigor, and policy relevance in the Asian context. Authors of accepted papers will be contacted by 15 March 2022. Authors of accepted papers will also have the opportunity to submit their papers for a Special Issue of the Asian Development Review(Guest Editor: Xin Meng, Australian National University).

Submission Deadline: 14 January 2022

Call for mini-conferences: 2022 Annual SASE Conference (Amsterdam, July 2022)

9-11 July 2022 | Amsterdam, Netherlands

Conference Theme: Fractious Connections: Anarchy, Activism, Coordination, and Control

The Society for the Advancement of Socio-economics (SASE) is currently accepting submissions for mini-conferences for the 2022 annual conference. Preference will be given to proposals linked to the overarching conference theme, “Fractious Connections: Anarchy, Activism, Coordination, and Control”. Special consideration will also be given to proposals that cover areas currently underrepresented in SASE, notably race and ethnicity, migration, economic history, and heterodox economics – as well as submissions that provide a global perspective.

The overarching theme of the SASE 2022 conference will be to explore the paradox of Fractious Connections. This will be done through the lens of four key concepts that have received varying degrees of attention in comparative political economy: Anarchism, Activism, Coordination, and Control. The concept of Coordination in comparative political economy has received considerable attention in relation to debates around the Varieties of Capitalism. But has digital disruption undermined this coordination? The concept of Control has been used to understand the labor process; but how is this evolving in relation to digital surveillance at work and in politics? The concepts of Anarchy and Activism have, relatively speaking, received much less attention within the SASE community. Activism is frequently discussed within an Industrial Relations framework. While traditional male, manufacturing union membership has declined; a plethora of new forms of organizing for an emergent “gig” workforce has included the voices of younger, female, and ethnically diverse communities. We need to know more about these developments evolving outside established organizations. Anarchy is not often discussed in comparative political economy, although there is a vibrant discourse in international relations (Hedley Bull 1977), and in the work of Chomsky (1994). Understanding how disruptive digital practices have emerged anarchically exposes new structures and organization of power, opportunity, and oppression. Re-examining these concepts and developments relates back to the work of Granovetter in connecting the individual experiences with global societal structures to understand the paradoxical way fractious connections are evolving.

Before submitting a proposal, please consult the list of extant SASE networks. Proposals that would otherwise fit within a network will be expected to include an explanation as to why the topic should be discussed in a mini-conference format. You may also consult programs from past conferences to view mini-conference themes from previous years.

Proposals for mini-conferences must be submitted electronically to the SASE Executive Director (saseexecutive@sase.org) by 20 October 2021. For the full call for mini-conferences and a link to the application please visit the call page. For more information on the 2022 SASE Annual Conference please visit the conference page.

Virtual conference: Teaching Ethics to Economists: Challenges & Benefits (online, October 2021)

21-22 October 2021 | online

LSBU's Business School and the London Centre for Business and Entrepreneurship Research are pleased to present this two-day virtual conference 'Teaching Ethics to Economists: Challenges & Benefits'.

During the last 30 years, the conversation between economic theory and ethics has been restarted, after a period of interruption, generated by the positivist era in economics. We cannot ignore, in this revival, the role of the financial crisis, gender, and racial inequality and now the divisions revealed by the unequal impacts of the pandemic. An important contribution has been the call for a professional economic ethics led by DeMartino (2011) and DeMartino and McCloskey (2016). More recently, Dolfsma and Negru (2019) challenge the idea that ethics has no place in economics. Building on their ideas we ask: Is ethics important for the study of the economy and, if so, how should it be taught?

For the full two-day itinerary and registration please visit the event page.

4th Webinar Session of the ASE Webinar Series: online now

The 4th Webinar Session of the ASE Webinar Series entitled "The Economics of Gender Disparities: A focus on the Labor Market & Immigration" with guest speakers Dr. Ying Zhen & Dr. Yunsun Huh from 24th September 2021 is now available online.

Dr. Zhen's study summarizes and analyzes the gender and racial discrimination that musicians face in the music labor market of the United States, with a focus of exploring the gender and ethnicity interactions’ effects on the economic return of musicians. This study is based on a survey of 1,227 musicians in the U.S. in 2018, which was conducted by the Music Industry Research Association (MIRA) and the Princeton University Survey Research Center, in partnership with MusiCares.

Dr. Huh's study explores selectivity, gender empowerment, and labor market decisions of bridal immigrants who migrated to South Korea through commercially arranged marriage. This special type of international migration only occurs to women and demonstrates the global reality of traditional gender norms, which define women’s role as a housewife and men’s role as a breadwinner. The study investigates how bridal immigrants are different from non-migrants in their home countries in terms of educational attainment. The study also measures their gender empowerment within the new family and its impact on the labor market participation of bridal immigrants in the host country.

If you were not able to attend this session live, you can view the recording here. For information about the ASE webinar series, please contact Dr. Iris Buder (irisbuder@isu.edu)

Aid Imperium

by Salvador Santino Regilme | University of Michigan Press, 2021

Does foreign aid promote human rights? As the world’s largest aid donor, the United States has provided foreign assistance to more than 200 countries. Deploying global numerical data on US foreign aid and comparative historical analysis of America’s post–Cold War foreign policies in Southeast Asia, Aid Imperium provides the most comprehensive explanation that links US strategic assistance to physical integrity rights outcomes in recipient countries, particularly in ways that previous quantitative studies have systematically ignored. The book innovatively highlights the active political agency of Global South states and actors as they negotiate and chart their political trajectories with the United States as the core state of the international system. Drawing from theoretical insights in the humanities and the social sciences as well as a wide range of empirical documents, Aid Imperium is the first multidisciplinary study to explain how US foreign policy affects state repression and physical integrity rights outcomes in Southeast Asia and the rest of the Global South.

Arise. Power, Strategy and Union Resurgence

Jane Holgate | 2021, Pluto Press

In Arise, Jane Holgate argues that unions must revisit their understanding of power in order to regain influence and confront capital. Drawing on two decades of research and organising experience, Holgate examines the structural inertia of today’s unions from a range of perspectives: from strategic choice, leadership and union democracy to politics, tactics and the agency afforded to rank-and-file members. In the midst of a neoliberal era of economic crisis and political upheaval, the labour movement stands at a crossroads. Union membership is on the rise, but the ‘turn to organising’ has largely failed to translate into meaningful gains for workers. There is considerable discussion about the lack of collectivism among workers due to casualisation, gig work and precarity, yet these conditions were standard in the UK when workers built the foundations of the 19th-century trade union movement. Drawing on history and case studies of unions developing and using power effectively, this book offers strategies for moving beyond the pessimism that prevails in much of today’s union movement. By placing power analysis back at the heart of workers' struggle, Holgate shows us that transformational change is not only possible, but within reach.

Egypt’s Occupation: Colonial Economism and the Crises of Capitalism

by Aaron G. Jakes | 2020, Stanford University Press

Aaron Jakes offers a sweeping reinterpretation of both the historical geography of capitalism in Egypt and the role of political-economic thought in the struggles that raged over the occupation. He traces the complex ramifications and the contested legacy of colonial economism, the animating theory of British imperial rule that held Egyptians to be capable of only a recognition of their own bare economic interests. Even as British officials claimed that "economic development" and the multiplication of new financial institutions would be crucial to the political legitimacy of the occupation, Egypt's early nationalists elaborated their own critical accounts of boom and bust. As Jakes shows, these Egyptian thinkers offered a set of sophisticated and troubling meditations on the deeper contradictions of capitalism and the very meaning of freedom in a capitalist world.

Money Power and Financial Capital in Emerging Markets: Facing the Liquidity Tsunami

by Ilias Alami | 2020, Routledge

This book provides a comprehensive investigation of the messy and crisis-ridden relationship between the operations of capitalist finance, global capital flows, and state power in emerging markets. The politics, drivers of emergence, and diversity of these myriad forms of state power are explored in light of the positionality of emerging markets within the network of space and power relations that characterizes contemporary global finance. The book develops a multi-disciplinary perspective and combines insights from Marxist political economy, post-Keynesian economics, economic geography, and postcolonial and feminist International Political Economy.

Nights of the Dispossessed. Riots Unbound

edited by Natasha Ginwala, Gal Kirn, and Niloufar Tajeri | 2021, Columbia University Press

The Night of the Dispossessed. Riots Unbound works on the intersection of the fields of political theory, urban and architectural perspectives, cultural and art research. The book departs from the hypothesis that riots, their historical forms, in our present times, and their & our future - are of massive urgency for all interested in the blind spots of dominant political theory and possible deeper social changes. They are extraordinary events that have been recurring with increasing frequency and that occupy a highly controversial space in the political imagination. Despite their often negative portrayals, it is undeniable that riots have played a pivotal role in the confrontation between authority and dissent. Recently, with the deepening crises of capitalism, racial violence, and communal tension, an "age of riots" has powerfully begun. As master fictions of the sovereign nation-state implode and the hegemonic silencing of the dispossessed reveals the cracks in governability, Nights of the Dispossessed brings together artistic works, political texts, critical urban analyses, and research projects from across the world in an endeavor to "sense," chronicle, and think through recent riots and uprisings—evoking a phenomenology of the multitude and surplus population.

Rentier Capitalism and Its Discontents: Power, Morality and Resistance in Central Asia

by Balihar Sanghera and Elmira Satybaldieva | Palgrave, 2021

This book explains and evaluates today’s economic, political, social and ecological crises through the lens of rentier capitalism and countermovements in Central Asia. Over the last three decades the rich and powerful have increased their wealth and political power to the detriment of social and environmental well-being. But their activities have not gone unchecked. Grassroots activism has resisted the harmful and damaging effects of the neoliberal commodification of things.

Providing a much-needed theorisation of the moral economy and politics of rent, this book offers in-depth case studies on finance, real estate and natural resources in Kazakhstan and Kyrgyzstan. The authors show the mechanisms of rent extraction, their moral justifications and legitimacy, and social struggles against them.

This book highlights the importance of class relations, state-countermovement interactions and global capitalism in understanding social and economic dynamics in Central Asia. It will be relevant to students and researchers interested in political economy, development studies, sociology, politics and international relations.

The Case for a Debt Jubilee

by Richard Vague | Polity Books, 2021

In the US today, private sector loans are asphyxiating many households and businesses. The debt burden for individuals in almost every age group and for businesses of every size is increasing, portending ever slower economic growth. A debt jubilee will bring economic renewal.

Debt almost always outgrows GDP, and has reached very high levels in developed economies. This debt growth is an intrinsic, persistent feature of economic systems. Adverse private debt growth trends do not self-correct. The forces that bring debt growth are built into the system and the upward debt march continues. These trends rarely even partially self-correct—and then only as a result of a financial crisis. In 1951, total debt stood at 128% of U.S. GDP. By the end of 2019, total debt had doubled to 258%. Government debt grew from 74% to 108% of GDP, but we should be more concerned about private sector debt, which tripled from 54% to 150%. For the bottom 60%, from 1989 to 2019, their debt increased by 90% while their financial net worth has declined from 43% to 24%. In contrast, for the top 10%, their debt has increased by only 17% while their financial net worth has doubled from 158% to 335% of income. The imperative for debt amnesty is not the bleating of the unduly compassionate, but a hard-nosed assessment of the needs of the overall system. Productive, realistic forms of debt amnesty are necessary to maintain a well-functioning economy. This book shows why a debt jubilee is imperative to rebuilding US fiscal policy, and how it would work.

The Condition of the Working Class in Turkey Labour under Neoliberal Authoritarianism

edited by Çağatay Edgücan Şahin and Mehmet Erman Erol | Pluto Press, 2021

Decades of neoliberal authoritarianism have propelled Turkey into crisis. Regime change, economic disaster and Erdogan’s ambition to impose ‘one-man rule’ have shaken the foundations of Turkish political life, but what does this mean for workers?

Moving beyond the headlines and personalities, this book uncovers the real condition of the working class in modern Turkey. Combining field research and in-depth interviews, it offers cutting-edge analyses of workplace struggles, trade unionism, the AKP’s relationship with neoliberalism, migration, gender, agrarian change and precarity, as well as the Covid-19 pandemic and its impact on workers.

Bringing together Turkish activists and scholars, this book is an inside look at the dynamics and contradictions of working-class resistance against Turkey’s neoliberal authoritarian regime; from worker self-management to organised labour and rural struggles.

PhD Scholarship at the University Greenwich, UK

The Covid pandemic has forced governments and central banks around the world to support their economies at an unprecedented scale. Despite, the fact that Covid is the second crisis in less than 15 years which triggered such large-scale fiscal and monetary policy intervention, the medium- and long-term effects of both policies are still poorly understood or underappreciated. Firstly, standard macroeconomic theory predicts a sharp rise in inflation because of expansionary policies, which however never materialised over the last 15 years. A list of prominent economists has highlighted this breakdown of inflation theory (Blanchard 2016, Ball and Mazumder 2018, Del Negro et al. 2020). Secondly, a well-established but in policy practice ignored fact is that fiscal and monetary policies are not neutral in terms of its effects on income, wealth and gender inequality. Which sector receives the stimulus has profound implications not only for the effectiveness of the stimulus but also for the distribution of jobs and incomes (De Henau and Himmelweit 2021, Onaran et al. 2021). Thirdly, unprecedented monetary expansion in the form of quantitative easing is seen as potentially suffering from serious unintended side effects in the form of exacerbating existing inequalities in the distribution of income and wealth as well as stimulating unsustainable debt accumulation (Evgenidis and Fasiano 2021, Mumtaz and Theophilopoulou 2017, Domanski et al. 2016).

This research will develop a novel theoretical framework to analyse the macroeconomic effects of large-scale fiscal and monetary interventions by synthesizing these three strands of the literature which previously have only been investigated in isolation.

We are seeking a fully-funded PhD student (3 years) to join the Institute for Political Economy, Governance, Finance and Accountability. We are looking for a graduate with a Master’s degree in economics or similar social sciences. Your research will be expected to culminate with a PhD dissertation after 3 years.

Bursary available (subject to satisfactory performance):

Year 1: £15,609 (FT) or pro-rata (PT) Year 2: In line with RCUK rate Year 3: In line with RCUK rate. In addition, the successful candidate will receive a contribution to tuition fees equivalent to the university’s Home rate, currently £4,500 (FT) or pro-rata (PT), for the duration of their scholarship. International applicants will need to pay the remainder tuition fee, currently £11,000, for the duration of their scholarship. This fee is subject to an annual increase.
