Heterodox Economics Newsletter

Issue 304 November 14, 2022 web pdf Heterodox Economics Directory

These days I was somewhat enthusiastic to find that the emblematic Economics Anti-Textbook, which focuses on a critical presentation of standard microeconomics content, has now been complemented by a companion volume on macroeconomic issues. This book is authored by Tony Myatt, who is also one of the original lead authors of the Economics Anti-Textbook, and carries the very consistent title "The Macroeconomics Anti-Textbook". As my teaching duties typically require me to also incorporate neoclassical concepts and theories, I am very thankful for books like these that are designed from the start to provide a critical entry-point to the dominant theories of our discipline (in the past I have also successfully used John Komlos’ Foundations of real-world economics as well as the Microeconomics/Macroeconomics in Context books).

Pointing out the fallacies in mainstream thinking in ways that are pedagogically useful is always a delicate task as it is a knife-edge issue. You always run the risk of oversimplifying; on the other hand, things quickly get technically intricate if you delve too deeply into certain subtleties. In this matter, I also highly appreciate Steve Keen's contributions, which often excel at striking the right balance. An example, which in my view does succeed in this regard, is this recent video in which Steve addresses energy as a blind-spot in mainstream theory, while – at the same time – explaining why the neoclassical gross-substitution axiom is self-defeating when it comes to hardly substitutable primary inputs. It is especially in these contexts where a standard Leontief-approach is arguably a superior tool for prediction. Moreover, Steve manages to connect this discussion to current policy-challenges in Europe induced by the Russian attack on Ukraine (by referring to the case of a German gas-embargo as a key example), and also suggests that we can interpret the capital-output ratio as a (probably rough) proxy for energy-efficiency. All of this seems like a lot but it takes Steve only 22 minutes to address it, so be prepared for his usual stormy talk ;-)

All the best,


PS: While I think the example of Steve's video is very neat, it also serves well to explain one tricky aspect of such criticism: in many cases, there exists a variation of some standard mainstream model in the literature that seems to address a certain more specific critique. Sometimes this only holds superficially, but at least with regard to Steve's criticism of the mainstream's obsession with substitution there is a somewhat valid exception that has similar concerns on, and makes similar arguments about, the crucial role of primary inputs, as Steve does (see here for the paper I am talking about). Of course, a structured and constructive discourse on such potential common grounds is difficult. For one, the mainstream is an inconsistent amoeba of models with 'a model for every purpose'. For another, such papers are typically crafted for other mainstream academics, which makes potential common grounds truly hard to spot. Still as open-minded people, we should occasionally give it a try... ;-)

6th International Conference on Economic Philosophy (Lille, June 2023)

28 June - 1 July 2023 | Lille, France

Conference Theme: Economic Philosophy in the Age of the Anthropocene

All our economic activities are transforming ecosystems and threatening the natural habitats that support all forms of life. This is what is known as the Anthropocene. Its advent corresponds with the beginnings of capitalism and with the industrial revolution, justifying for some the neologism of the “capitalocene”. The destruction of our commons - the climates, environments and species of earth - seems irreversible, threatening life on earth. Humanity becomes the subject of this event, regardless of cultural or national affiliation and we do not have the institutions to deal with this historically unparalleled challenge, nor do we know which scientific discipline is able to tackle it. The main currents in economic science all try to answer with their devices for measuring the good, its growth, its distribution and its use. Are they equipped to measure and remedy the destruction of our common goods?

The different branches of economics are not in capacity to provide a universal measure, able to go beyond the political divisions of nation states, beyond the production, distribution and consumption of wealth. Humanity, understood as the economic agent of the Anthropocene, does not know how to act; it is paralyzed and as consequence we do not know what to do or how to act. Economics is in trouble and seems helpless and silent. This crisis therefore is not only an economic crisis, nor just a crisis of humanity or a crisis of meaning, it is also and above all a moral, intellectual and scientific crisis. In other words, it is a crisis of the spirit that animated Modernity, a spirit present in contested claims of economics to provide the measuring instruments to guide individual and collective action. Economic philosophy is called upon, but can it still instruct and guide us in the face of the challenges of the Anthropocene?

Part of the economics profession continues to believe that this science has the means to respond to these challenges, that it has the tools and the method to construct and propose new indicators to guide collective choices. It calls upon the legislators of all countries in the hope that they will unite in a common program of ecological and economic transition, without calling into question the spirit of economic theory, of capitalism and of Modern Times in general. But isn't this political economy, which sees the legislator as the privileged economic subject, exhausted? Can it include the common good in its measuring devices? Are money and the centralized banking system still relevant institutions in the face of emergency? Is the Anthropocene not a symptom indicatingthe loss of the economic sovereignty of states? Etc.

The question of another economy raises out of these questions. The economy has not always had the globalized capitalist form that we know today. In the past, other economies existed that did not constitute a monetary system of production and exchange under the authority of Leviathan. Hence the following questions, which constitute avenues for reflection for this conference:

Finally, in the urgency of the present situation, reflections on types of ecological rationality, environmental injustice, the commons, and the common, ecological transition and democratic deliberation, and all other philosophical and economic contributions from thinkers who have contributed to this field of research will be welcome.

The languages of the conference will be English and French.

Deadline for submission (abstracts): 20 January 2023 (600 words + 3 keywords)

Call for book-chapter contributions: "Transformational Entrepreneurship: Case studies of socio-economic change"

Professors Andrew Johnston and Gideon Maas of the International Centre for Transformational Entrepreneurship share a call for chapters for a book they're editing on Transformational Entrepreneurship which is expected to be published on October 2023.

Transformational entrepreneurship is a relatively new concept that has emerged due to the need to achieve effective and efficient entrepreneurial behaviours that address global challenges that underpin economic underperformance and societal evolution (Jones and Maas, 2019). Therefore, this approach promotes enterprise through a systemic approach that encourages both social and economic development and has the potential to change economies through improvements to both society and the economy (Maas and Jones, 2019).

Chapters are welcome across, but not limited to, the following areas:

The editors want to publish 25 cases from around the world. In the first instance, authors should submit a 250-word abstract to the editors that outlines the aims and contribution of the chapter. Accepted chapters will then be subject to peer review. Cases should be circa 5000 words each. Teaching notes should also be provided per case.

Proposals, as well as inquiries, should be sent to Andrew Johnston at ad6366@coventry.ac.uk.

Deadline for submission (abstracts): 15 December 2022

European Journal of Social Theory: Special Issue on "Theorising Contemporary Capitalism"

Special Issue: Theorising Contemporary Capitalism

Special Issue editor: Charlie Masquelier

Since its inception, capitalism has faced numerous crises, which have at times threatened its existence. But instead of disappearing, capitalism was able to survive, often having to adapt and renew itself in the light of changing circumstances. For example, the aftermath of WWII saw the emergence of an 'organised’ model of capitalism, marked by Keynesian demand-side policies, a Fordist regime of production and redistributionist measures. The oil shocks of the early 1970s paved the way for an economic crisis and a new stage of capitalist development underpinned by neoliberal values.

But while neoliberal capitalism has risen to dominance within the Global North over the past three to four decades, non-negligible developments have recently surfaced that have led many commentators to question whether it is still possible to speak of a neoliberal age. The 2007-8 financial crisis, the Covid-19 pandemic, and, more recently, the cost of living crisis, are thought to have created new circumstances to which capitalism is having to adapt. But to what extent is it possible to speak of a new stage of capitalism? What are the key distinctive features of contemporary capitalism? For example, has the ‘marriage between capitalism and liberal democracy’ ended? What are contemporary capitalism’s fault lines?

The special issue aims to bring together diverse perspectives and emphases on contemporary capitalism in an effort to advance our understanding of the contemporary situation and possible future developments. It provides a dialogical space for devising conceptual tools appropriate for grappling and/or critically engaging with contemporary conditions of existence collectively.

Other themes and questions may include:

Please send all queries and expressions of interest to Charlie Masquelier at c.masquelier@exeter.ac.uk. Contributions must not exceed 9,000 words.

Deadline for expressions of interest: 16 December 2022
Deadline for submission of full papers: 26 May 2023

Gide Workshop 2023: Anniversary Edition (Lyon, June 2023)

8-10 June 2023 | Lyon, France

Workshop: French Economists and the Transformations of Economic Analysis: From Charles Gide to Esther Duflo

The history of economic thought has long identified notable differences between national traditions – American (Barbour, Cicarelli and King 2017), Spanish (Almenar and Llombar 2009), Italian (Faucci, 2014), Portuguese (Psalidopoulos and Mata 2002), Irish (Boylan, Prendergast and Turner 2015), Russian (Barnett 2009, Hagemann and Avtonomov 2022) among others. French economic thought has long stood out around strong markers (Dockès, Frobert, Klotz, Potier and Tiran (eds.) 2001, Breton and Lutfalla 1991). Until 1945, debates were lively between declining but still influential liberal economists and a growing heterodoxy, marked in particular by the contributions of Charles Gide; economist engineers contributed to the most sophisticated developments in mathematical economics (Maurice Allais, René Roy), in line with their predecessors Jules Dupuit, Clément Colson and François Divisia; and the monetary debates are rich and fruitful (Jacques Rueff, Bertrand Nogaro, Albert Aftalion, Charles Rist).

After 1945, the center of gravity of economic thought shifted to the United States. The discipline is becoming more international and national specificities are diminishing. France nevertheless retains strong specialties, in the field of macroeconomics (Edmond Malinvaud, Maurice Allais), general equilibrium models (Gérard Debreu, Jean-Michel Grandmont), national accounts (Pierre Uri, Charles Prou), decision theories (Maurice Allais), industrial economics (Marcel Boiteux), international economics (François Perroux) and sees the development of influential critical currents (schools of regulation with Robert Boyer or Bruno Théret, economics of conventions with Olivier Favereau or André Orléan). More recently, French economists have distinguished themselves in the study of social justice and inequalities (Serge-Christophe Kolm, Thomas Piketty, Emmanuel Saez, Gabriel Zucman), in monetary economics (Michel Aglietta, Jean Cartelier), in public economics (Jean Tirole, Jean-Jacques Laffont), in the implementation of randomized experiences (Esther Duflo). Some have done all or part of their intellectual career abroad, especially in the United States (Olivier Blanchard, Thomas Piketty, Gabriel Zucman, Ester Duflo), while others have founded or developed research centres and schools in France (Jean Tirole, Robert Boyer). Finally, women economists have started to become visible, some of them obtaining important scientific recognition (Ester Duflo, Stefanie Stancheva).

On the occasion of the 40th anniversary of the Gide Association, the workshop will honor the thinking of French economists since the end of the 19th century, by questioning their contributions to the transformations of economic analysis at different times.

Proposals may adopt one of the following perspectives:

Articles may deal with a wide variety of themes (women and economics, public debt, macroeconometrics, the development of new forecasting tools, experimental economics and decision theories, among others) when they cover the period from 1850 to the present day. Work on methodology or economic philosophy will be appreciated as well.

Each article proposal (in French or in English) must contain no more than 500 words. Proposals for entire sessions are welcome. The presentations will be face-to-face (in Lyon), mainly in French.

A selection of articles will be published in a special issue of the Revue d’histoire de la pensée économique.

Proposals for papers and/or sessions must be made on the Gide Days website. For more information, please visit the conference website.

Deadline for submission of proposals: 1 February 2023

Journal Économie et Institutions: Special Issue on "Neoliberalism and Institutionalism: From the Washington Consensus Critique to Feminist Institutionalism”

The French Journal Économie et Institutions calls for contributions for a Special Issue on

"Neoliberalism and Institutionalism: From the Washington Consensus Critique to Feminist Institutionalism”

The Washington Consensus is a set of measures (Williamson 1990), generally summarized by the three-fold combination of stabilization, liberalization and privatization, which became - with the support of the IMF and the World Bank - the main source of inspiration for the structural reform programs implemented in the 1990s in many countries, particularly in Latin America, sub-Saharan Africa and Central and Eastern Europe. Faced with the disappointing results of these programs across all continents (Rodrik 2006), the World Bank recognized their failure in the next decade, the main cause of which, according to the Bank, lay in the inability to take institutions into account in the process of reform (World Bank 2005). By so doing, it contributed to the broader "institutionalist turn" in economics (Evans 2005), namely the recognition of the role of institutions in economic dynamics. This did not imply a radical questioning of the neoclassical paradigm, but it led international organizations and many NGOs to define a new paradigm of analysis and action based on "social development". One aspect of social development focuses on women's poverty (Prévost and Palier, 2007), who are then specifically targeted by development policies through new issues such as empowerment, human capital and micro-financing (Guérin 2015).

This theoretical renewal in the 1990s was also reflected in the development of feminist institutionalism in the United States (Waller & Jennings 1990; Jennings 1993), stimulated by the emerging Feminist Economics school of thought (Ferber & Nelson 1993). The feminist question in institutionalism is yet much older. From the end of the 19th century, the institutionalist approach was clearly sensitive to the question of inequalities between men and women and the sexual division of labor, as well as to their social impact. However, after the pioneering work of Thorstein Veblen (1894; 1899) and Charlotte Perkins Gilman (1903) on the social and economic status of women, the issue was completely overlooked by institutional economics. From the 1990s onward, the link between "old institutionalism" (Chavance 2007) and feminist institutionalism was the object of further debate (Waller and Jennings 1990 and 1991). Although this discussion highlighted many similarities between institutionalism and feminism (e.g., the role of historical and social context, the fictitious dichotomy between private and public (Jennings 1993); the definition of economics as "social provisioning" (Power 2004); the artificial autonomy of homo oeconomicus (Ferber & Nelson 1993); etc.), this approach to a feminist institutionalism never emerged as a central issue in either feminist economics or institutionalist economics.

More recently, the link between institutionalism and feminism has been the subject of several publications (Morel 2007; Fraser 2014; Morel et al. 2019), especially around the critique of neoliberalism (Waller & Wrenn 2021). It is this specific connection that this special issue proposes to study, highlighting how the critique of neoliberalism has allowed the emergence of new institutionalist contributions, from the critique of the Washington Consensus to the revival of feminist institutionalism. Contributions may be either historical, revisiting the analysis of the "institutionalist turn" or theoretical, showing how elements of feminist theory can enhance the institutionalist approach. Empirical papers are welcome too, either mobilizing feminist institutionalism to analyze the characteristics of a neoliberal accumulation regime as well as its ongoing transformations, or by analyzing neoliberal reconfigurations of the central institutions where gender inequalities are at play (labor market and organization, education, family, welfare, etc.). Contributions from all social sciences are welcome (economics, but also anthropology, geography, sociology, etc.).

Submission Process

Authors may submit proposals of approximately 500 words to the scientific committee until January 15, 2023. Final Papers are expected by June 15, 2023.

Please find more information on the official website.

Submission Deadline: 15 January 2023

PSL Quarterly Review: Special Section on "The Future of Reformed Capitalism"

guest-edited by Amit Bhaduri

Special Section on "The Future of Reformed Capitalism"

PSL Quarterly Review invites contributions or interventions for our special section on the future of reformed capitalism, guest-edited by Amit Bhaduri. This section has always been conceived as a temporary initiative, and for the next months we are planning new initiatives to wrap it up. At this time we are still accepting final contributions to the debate, provided they arrive in a relatively short time.

PSL Quarterly Review is a quarterly open-access electronic journal that provides an open forum for debate on economics and economic policy. PSL Quarterly Review is a pluralist journal: we welcome contributions in all fields and from all the schools and research paradigms of economics, without any discrimination. All submissions are subject to peer review, based on two criteria: their method should be rigorous, and their contents should be relevant. Both criteria must be fulfilled for acceptance for publication. The editors of PSL Quarterly Review hold a negative view of several practices of contemporary academic publishing, especially in economics. Thus, while we welcome replication studies, we strongly discourage the submission of mere econometric exercises or of articles aimed at displaying technical prowess per se. Authors are invited to clearly highlight the relevance of their work for economic analysis and/or economic policy.

Please do not hesitate to contact Carlo D'Ippoliti (Sapienza University of Rome) if you are considering submitting a note for this section.

SASE Annual Conference 2023 (Rio de Janeiro, July 2023)

20-22 July 2023 | Rio de Janeiro, Brazil

Submissions are now OPEN for SASE's 2023 conference in Rio de Janeiro, 20-22 July 2023, at the Federal University of Rio de Janeiro (UFRJ).

Conference Theme: "Socio-Economics in a Transitioning World: Breaking Lines and Alternative Paradigms for a New World Order"

We have observed numerous signs of disruption—at all levels of social relations—of the world built over the past two centuries, in the heat of the industrial revolution and revitalized by successive waves of systemic innovations. It now seems that some of the engines that have driven this process are breaking down, not only from a conjectural perspective due to the most immediate episodes (pandemic, wars, planetary awareness of global warming, etc.) but also in view of the sustainability of long-term socio-economic development. In particular, the role of fossil fuels, which have enabled the establishment of the current production and consumption model, threatens the very survival of the planet, and with it its human inhabitants. Beyond millenarian discourses, the energy transition—to leave behind carbon and its destructive effects on the environment that hosts us—is an urgent necessity. The entire fabric that has been built around the carbon energy paradigm is likewise showing signs of stagnation and deterioration.

In their disruption of current models, technological innovation, robotization, and AI may represent an opportunity to move toward this new world order. But the governance of the coming transformations must also lead to the construction of new forms of political organization and new labor scenarios that overcome the ups and downs of volatile and geographically limited democratic systems. More than three decades after the fall of the Berlin Wall, the old Western dream of the urbi et orbi extension of its old democratic formulas of economic and political governance does not seem to have prevailed. Rather, we are besieged by a malaise resulting from the advance of growing authoritarianism, even in the very heart of the oldest democracies. It is not, as in the past, the emergence of fascism or Nazism, strictu sensu, but the expansion of authoritarian expressions of all kinds, with idiosyncratic characteristics, that are permeating institutions in the most varied geographical settings.

These authoritarianisms obstruct the opportunities offered by technological progress for a more inclusive world in all spheres of human life. The counterpoint will have to be new forms of governance in institutions, freeing us from the absolute power of large corporations. Emerging social movements demand forms of democracy that are more participatory than representative, with direct involvement in the collective governance of citizens and their forms of organization in interconnected networks. A new socio-economic paradigm would have to provide answers to this socio-political breaking point.

Socio-economics, it should be remembered, is a scientific approach that seeks to build alternative paradigms in the social sciences; thus, in this context, it is a dynamic axis that contributes to the establishment of a new theoretical and methodological horizon in the social sciences. In this perspective, SASE provides a platform for creative empirical and theoretical research on key social problems. We are committed to supporting a diverse international membership which fosters and produces thoughtful yet lively intellectual and interdisciplinary debates.

Submission Process

With regard to these themes, and the more specific areas of the 18 networks that organize the contents of our society, we encourage you to submit your papers and your proposals for mini-conferences at the 35th annual SASE conference, which will be held at the Federal University of Rio de Janeiro in July 2023.

SASE accepts 2 types of submissions: abstracts and panels. Click here to submit.

You will be prompted to submit to a specific theme track within the conference. Learn more about these here: SASE networks and 2023 mini-conferences.

SASE is using Oxford Abstracts for its submissions this year, and we would be happy to have your feedback on the new system. Please write to Executive Director Annelies Fryberger (saseexecutive@sase.org) if you have any comments to share. If you already have an Oxford Abstracts account, you can use that for your SASE submission; otherwise, you can easily create one.

You can submit an abstract for an individual presentation, and there are three possible types of panels you can submit - a pre-formed panel with multiple paper presentations, a roundtable discussion panel, or an Author-Meets-Critics session (see here for some examples of Author-Meets-Critics sessions - these panels include a book author and 3-4 discussants).

One Project, (remote)

Job title: Postcaptialist Economic System Architect

At One Project, the team believes in a futur e that is free and fair, in which all can flourish. We are inspired to break away from failed and oppressive economic systems. Our work is to help imagine what comes after capitalism, foster the collaborations needed to create it, and support the cultivation of new futures into being. We work both as an operating non-profit and a giving foundation for this work and the wider ecosystem in which it may thrive.

We begin with the radical notion that all human beings on the planet can have enough food, shelter, health care, access to information and education, meaningful work, and the conditions to lead a satisfying life of their choosing, rooted in equity and justice for all. Crucially, we believe this can happen as the natural world regenerates, making wildlife more abundant, the climate more stable, the air and water cleaner, and the ecosystem more self-sustaining. We also believe this can happen while we work to repair the historical and ongoing harm done by colonialism, slavery, indigenous genocide, and left theft. While this may sound naive or idealistic, we believe that humanity can achieve this within our lifetimes. In fact, we must at least move substantially in this direction before the interwoven threats of ecological destruction, social instability, and unaccountable technology threaten to leave irreversible damage.

We cannot get there by relying on the same systems that have increased resource use to almost twice what the Earth can support over the last 50 years. We cannot leave billions of people living just barely above subsistence level and leave global existential risks unaddressed. We believe it’s time to address the root causes of these crises before their symptoms overwhelm our planet and all of us. That’s why One Project exists.

One Project is looking for a Postcapitalist Economic System Architect to co-create new and amplify emerging economic and governance systems that are equitable, ecological, and effective. You'll work closely with our partner communities around the globe to imagine, model, simulate, realize and support new systems and promising experiments already underway. You’ll steward the effort to develop the technical mechanics of those systems, then partner with One Project’s design, engineering, and community engagement teams to prototype, iterate, and scale those systems as digital and social infrastructure.
Even as capitalism’s destructive effects on the planet and its people become more widely recognized, there remains an absence of rigorously-defined planetary alternatives. The debates of the 20th century that concluded there were no better options were based on technical and social assumptions that no longer apply in the 21st. We are inspired by the successes of noncapitalist economic approaches, many developed by indigenous and grassroots communities, to distribute resources and live more fulfilling lives. We aim to work in solidarity to evolve these into viable, global, democratic alternatives for a world in crisis and opportunity.
While we hope the Postcapitalist Economic System Architect will bring a combination of technical and leadership skills, this role indexes more heavily on the technical skills and presents an opportunity to grow your leadership in an exciting and growing organization. You’ll work alongside members of our team, including Raphael Arar, Sasha Constanza-Chock, Daniel Deng, and Justin Rosenstein, in a collaborative and supportive environment.

The project is comparative, focusing on Denmark, Switzerland, Germany, Hungary, the UK and Spain as case studies and involving partners from all these countries in the consortium. As a postdoctoral researcher you will work closely with the Danish lead partner Laura Horn (RUC) and the project’s international consortium.

The postdoc will contribute to several stages of the project: In the beginning, the development of a typology for analysing party manifestos, based on feminist theory. The core task involves contributing to developing a survey questionnaire, and then independently carrying out survey data analysis for the Danish case. In addition, conducting and analysing focus groups, engagement with stakeholders and contributing to the formulation of policy recommendations will be part of the responsibilities. Finally, teaching and teaching-related tasks are included in the position. The postdoc will also participate in Roskilde University's university pedagogy and active research environment.

Central Bank Independence and the Legacy of the German Past

Simon Mee | 2019, Cabridge University Press

The 2008 financial crisis led to more and more frequent political attacks on central banks. The recent spotlight on central bank independence is reminiscent of the fiery debates amongst Germany's political elites in 1949 on the same issue; debates that were sparked by the establishment of West Germany in that year. Simon Mee shows how, with the establishment of West Germany's central bank - today's Deutsche Bundesbank - the country's monetary history became a political football, as central bankers, politicians, industrialists and trade unionists all vied for influence over the legal provisions that set out the remit of the future monetary authority. The author reveals how a specific version of inter-war history, one that stresses the lessons learned from Germany's periods of inflation, was weaponised and attached to a political, contemporary argument for an independent central bank. The book challenges assumptions around the evolution of central bank independence with continued relevance today.

Ethical Value Networks in International Trade Social Justice, Sustainability and Provenance in the Global South

Edited by Warwick E. Murray, John Overton | 2022, Edward Elgar

This forward-looking book introduces the concept of Ethical Value Networks, building upon a theoretical exploration with primary evidence of their impacts in the Global South. It moves away from focusing on the consumption section of networks, with grounded impact studies that explore ethicality as a concept, how ethical value is created and how this is distributed through the socio-economy.

Framed by theoretical exploration and reflection, the book offers a selection of case studies from Africa, Latin America, the Pacific and Southeast Asia to highlight the implications of Ethical Value Networks for producers and localities in the Global South. Chapters further analyse and critique the rise of the ethical trade and certification schemes, as well as three ethical trade constellations: social justice through fair trade, sustainability through organic agriculture and authenticity through geographic indications.

The in-depth analysis of ethical trading in wine, coffee, fruit and other key sectors combined with theoretical study will make this an important read for ethical trade researchers as well as policy makers and those responsible for the governance and operation of ethical value networks. It will also be an invigorating read for economic geography, development studies, international development and management studies scholars.

Faces of Precarity – Critical Perspectives on Work, Subjectivities and Struggles

Edited by Joseph Choonara, Annalisa Murgia, and Renato Miguel Carmo | 2022, Bristol University Press

The words ‘precarity’ and ‘precariousness’ are widely used when discussing work, social conditions and experiences. However, there is no consensus on their meaning or how best to use them to explore social changes.

This book shows how scholars have mapped out these notions, offering substantive analyses of issues such as the relationships between precariousness, debt, migration, health and workers’ mobilisations, and how these relationships have changed in the context of COVID-19.

Bringing together an international group of authors from diverse fields, this book offers a distinctive critical perspective on the processes of precarisation, focusing in particular on the European context.

Financialization: Economic and Social Impacts

by Malcolm Sawyer | 2022, Agenda Publishing

Finance has long been an integral part of the capitalist economy, yet since the 1970s the realm of finance has burgeoned, reaching well beyond its traditional funding roles. Finance now reaches into all aspects of economic life from the everyday activity of the individual, to the behaviour of corporations and the decisions made for society as a whole. The power and fragility of the financial sector are seen by the simple fact that when things go wrong, it can bring down banks, currencies, and governments, plunging countries into generations of debt and hardship.

Malcolm Sawyer offers a comprehensive survey of the impact of financialization on economic growth and society. The book draws on and distills a remarkable range of research to provide readers with a guide to current thinking about the place of finance in the wider macroeconomy and considers the prospects for definancialization and a future role that is less pervasive.

Globalization and the Decline of American Power: The Political Economy of the American Fall

by Cyrus Bina | 2022, Routledge

This book explores America’s decline as a global power, arguing that the implosion of Pax Americana was initiated by the process of globalization, preceding the collapse of the Soviet Union by nearly a decade. The era of Pax Americana, and with it American hegemony, is conclusively passed, and will not return in current global conditions.

There is a stark contrast between the present epoch and the postwar era of American hegemony (1945–1979) in which the United States, at least outside of the Soviet sphere of influence, largely managed the international economy and reigned over international politics and relations. Drawing on both theoretical and empirical evidence, this book shows that the era of globalization unleashed forces—social, political, and economic—which broke down the status quo of American hegemony. Author Cyrus Bina also establishes that since the Iranian Revolution (1979), US involvement throughout the Middle East, in Iraq, Afghanistan, Libya, Syria, Yemen, and now notably in Ukraine has been motivated by the freefall of American hegemony and an attempt to get it back by direct or indirect military force. Bina utilizes these contexts for wider analysis and critique of a number of theories commonly used to analyze economy, polity, geopolitical, and dynamics of crisis and social change in capitalism.

This book will be of great interest to students, academics, and policymakers on subjects of Economics, International Relations, Global Studies, International Political Economy, Political Geography, Sociology, and postwar History.

Grand Challenges of Planetary Governance Global Order in Turbulent Times

by Oran R. Young | 2021, Edward Elgar

In this timely book, leading scholar Oran Young reflects on the future of the global order. Developing new lenses through which to consider needs for governance arising on a global scale, Young investigates the grand challenges of the 21st century requiring the most urgent and sustained planetary responses: protecting the Earth’s climate system; controlling the eruption of pandemics; suppressing disruptive uses of cyberspace; and guiding the biotechnology revolution.

Exploring how developments such as globalization, the rise of increasingly influential non-state actors, and the onset of the cyber age are eroding the institutional foundations of international society, this book considers the prospects for new forms of global order that differ in important ways from the familiar but increasingly problematic states system.

Offering critical insights into the pressing need for institutional change to meet 21st century challenges, this book will prove beneficial to scholars working on matters involving governance on a global scale. Practitioners looking to connect their actions to broader analytic concerns will also find the book insightful.

Handbook of International Climate Finance

Edited by Axel Michaelowa, Department of Political Science, University of Zurich, Switzerland and Perspectives Climate Research, Germany and Anne-Kathrin Sacherer | 2022, Edward Elgar

The concept of international climate finance channelled from developed to developing countries through public interventions for mitigation and adaptation has been developed over the last decade, but its roots date back to the early 1990s. Despite the high relevance of the topic in the international climate negotiations, illustrated by the (missed) target to mobilise USD 100 billion by 2020, there is no book that provides an overview accessible to academics and practitioners alike.

This comprehensive Handbook of International Climate Finance closes this gap, with contributions from expert researchers and practitioners involved in key climate finance institutions. Chapters assess past approaches to international climate finance, discuss the effectiveness of different channels for climate finance, debate challenges encountered and elucidate national strategies of donors and recipients. An important section elaborates perspectives for sources of international climate finance from multilateral channels, the private sector, and blending of finance including through international carbon markets. The Handbook further elaborates perspectives on ownership and accountability and the role of the private sector. Mapping out pathways for the future, it concludes by providing a vision for international climate finance after 2025.

This forward-thinking Handbook will be a critical resource for scholars and students with an interest in climate change and related policies and environmental politics, policy, and economics more broadly. It provides key input for international climate negotiators, climate activists and international climate finance institutions.

Handbook on Trade Policy and Climate Change

Edited by Michael Jakob | 2022, Edward Elgar

This insightful Handbook provides a comprehensive overview of the most recent developments in the academic debate on the numerous and complex linkages between international trade and climate change.

Adopting a broad interdisciplinary approach, it brings together perspectives from scholars in economics, political science and legal studies to confront the critical environmental challenges posed by globalization. Initial chapters provide an overview of the key debates related to international trade and climate policy, engaging with empirical data from the US and China to assess the impact of new trade initiatives and policy on greenhouse gas emissions, carbon leakage and the increase of trade in carbon-intensive products. Contributors propose policy options that align international trade with climate change mitigation and address crucial legal and practical implications, including the implementation of Border Carbon Adjustments and international trade disputes.

Offering critical and empirically-based perspectives on the future of international trade policy, this timely Handbook is crucial reading for scholars, researchers and graduate students in political science, public policy and climate research. Policymakers will also benefit from its unique and insightful policy recommendations.

Heterodox Economics: Legacy and Prospects

Edited by Lynne Chester and Tae-Hee Jo I 2022, World Economics Association

This collection of essays demonstrates that heterodox economics is a scientific, pluralistic, interdisciplinary, and communal paradigm advancing our understanding of the real-world. Our efforts to advance heterodox economics continues, however, to encounter suppression and marginalization within the discipline of economics, as well as critiques steeped in the past and not directed at current heterodoxy debates and developments. This book thus challenges several old, and resurrected, critiques of heterodox economics – for example, heterodox economics has failed to become influential within the economics discipline due to a lack of consensus about its identity, theoretical core, and pluralism; heterodox economics is overly political (that is, left-wing politics dominating over theory and policy); heterodox economics can only survive if it incorporates cutting-edge mainstream ideas and methods, and if it adopts the mainstream-dominant evaluation criteria (e.g., journal rankings based on citation metrics). These critiques need to be debated as they concern the legitimacy and thus future of heterodox economics. To this end, the contributions to this volume take on these critiques directly and an optimistic standpoint to galvanize and energize heterodox economics.

Money, Finance, Reality, Morality: A New Way to Address Old Problems

by Edward Hadas | 2022, Money, Finance, Reality, Morality: A New Way to Address Old Problems

Conventional explanations of the nature of money are weighed down by bad ideas and irrelevant historical evidence. The standard theory of finance is hampered by the lack of both sociological and ethical contextualization, and by sloppy thinking about numbers and time. Money, Finance, Reality, Morality addresses those weaknesses with truly novel models of how the economy, money, and finance actually work.

The book analyses the perception of money as an economic tool (as compared to a symbolic and sociological object) as a highly functional quantitative token that assigns numerical values to the inherently unmeasurable economic activities of labour and consumption. It looks at finance as an often inferior solution to economic problems and a tool for helping the poor support the rich. And it explains how the tolerance of greed makes the money-finance system the weakest link in modern economies.

The Capital Order: How Economists Invented Austerity and Paved the Way to Fascism

by Clara E. Mattei | 2022, The University of Chicago Press

For more than a century, governments facing financial crisis have resorted to the economic policies of austerity—cuts to wages, fiscal spending, and public benefits—as a path to solvency. While these policies have been successful in appeasing creditors, they’ve had devastating effects on social and economic welfare in countries all over the world. Today, as austerity remains a favored policy among troubled states, an important question remains: What if solvency was never really the goal? In The Capital Order, political economist Clara E. Mattei explores the intellectual origins of austerity to uncover its originating motives: the protection of capital—and indeed capitalism—in times of social upheaval from below.

Mattei traces modern austerity to its origins in interwar Britain and Italy, revealing how the threat of working-class power in the years after World War I animated a set of top-down economic policies that elevated owners, smothered workers, and imposed a rigid economic hierarchy across their societies. Where these policies “succeeded,” relatively speaking, was in their enrichment of certain parties, including employers and foreign-trade interests, who accumulated power and capital at the expense of labor. Here, Mattei argues, is where the true value of austerity can be observed: its insulation of entrenched privilege and its elimination of all alternatives to capitalism.

Drawing on newly uncovered archival material from Britain and Italy, much of it translated for the first time, The Capital Order offers a damning and essential new account of the rise of austerity—and of modern economics—at the levers of contemporary political power.

The Macroeconomics Anti-Textbook: A Critical Thinker’s Guide

by Tony Myatt | 2022, Bloomsbury Publishing

Mainstream textbooks present economics as an objective science, free from value judgements. This bookdemonstrates this to be a myth – one which serves to make such textbooks not only off-puttingly bland, but also dangerously misleading in their justification of the status quo and neglect of alternatives. In this much-needed companion volume to the popular Microeconomics Anti-Textbook, Tony Myatt reveals how the blind spots and methodological problems present in microeconomics continue to exert their influence in mainstream macroeconomics. From a flawed conception of the labour market, to a Pollyana view of the financial sector, macroeconomic principles as they are set out in conventional undergraduate textbooks consistently fail to set out a realistic, useful, or equitable framework for understanding the world. By summarising and then critically evaluating the major topics found in a typical macroeconomics textbook, the Anti-Textbook lays bare their sins of omission and commission, showing where hidden value judgements are made and when contrary evidence and alternative theories are ignored. The Macroeconomics Anti-Textbook is the student's essential guide to decoding mainstream macroeconomic textbooks, and demonstrating how real-world economics are much more interesting than most economists are willing to let on.

Why Democracy Failed. The Agrarian Origins of the Spanish Civil War

by James Simpson and Juan Carmona | 2020, Cambridge University Press

In this distinctive new history of the origins of the Spanish Civil War, James Simpson and Juan Carmona tackle the highly-debated issue of why it was that Spain's democratic Second Republic failed. They explore the interconnections between economic growth, state capacity, rural social mobility and the creation of mass competitive political parties, and how these limited the effectiveness of the new republican governments, and especially their attempts to tackle economic and social problems within the agricultural sector. They show how political change during the Republic had a major economic impact on the different groups in village society, leading to social conflicts that turned to polarization and finally, with the civil war, to violence and brutality. The democratic Republic failed not so much because of the opposition from the landed elites, but rather because small farmers had been unable to exploit more effectively their newly found political voice.

Heterodox Graduate Programs, Scholarships and Grants

Call for Research Proposals: Towards Feminist Development Policy: Prioritising the Foundational Economy and Universal Basic Services

As part of an EC DEAR-funded project involving 16 NGOs from 10 European countries (#ClimateofChange), Oxfam Germany is calling for offers to conduct research on the following thesis:

Can prioritizing Universal Basic Services and the foundational economy in development policy build on approaches and demands from the Global South to fight poverty, reduce inequality and build resiliency in the face of the climate crisis while moving towards feminist development policy?

Universal Basic Services (UBS) is a concept and political demand for unconditional and rights-based access to essential services and social protection that goes beyond the bare minimum. These services may include education, health and care services, internet, transport, culture etc. - all those services and goods that are necessary for a decent life and full participation in society.

Applying and prioritising a UBS/foundational economy approach in development policy, cooperation and ODA would potentially end poverty and meaningfully reduce inequality by substantially raising the standard of living and reducing vulnerability to crisis for the most vulnerable. Such reappraisal would signal a paradigm shift towards feminist development
policy as the UBS/foundational economy approaches

Foundational economy and UBS are currently being discussed in policy and academic circles, particularly in the UK and overwhelmingly with regards to Europe/the Global North, building and expanding on existing or former welfare states.

The assignment includes the presentation of the results in March at a public event with NGOs and MEPs in Brussels and at least two presentations and feedback rounds with Oxfam and representatives from #ClimateOfChange partner organisations.

For submission of offers, as well as inquiries, please write to Lukas Warning at lwarning@oxfam.de.

These might involve creating opportunities to further interaction, disseminating knowledge and access to resources, engaging younger scholars, reaching out to broader audiences both within and outside of academia, and other endeavors that promote a public good for our community.

The title New Initiatives Fund signals our openness to creative, out-of-the-box proposals. Our purpose is to rely on the knowledge, experience and insight of our members to devise ways to promote and improve the field. Initiatives funded in the past have ranged from summer schools, through digital resources to a podcast series (see full list below).

Competition for funding is open to HES members only. The Society allocates a total of $35,000 per year in support of New Initiatives. Each proposal may request up to $10,000 in funding. The submissions received will be vetted by a New Initiatives Committee appointed by the HES President; recommendations of this committee are then voted on by the full Executive Committee. Applicants are encouraged to discuss the ways in which the project could have a lasting impact in the field and support the mission of HES, as specified above.

Multi-year initiatives will be viewed more favorably if they include plausible plans for developing independent sources of ongoing funding. Funding from the Society is not an ongoing commitment but may be renewed at the committee’s discretion.

Details on the submission process can be found on our website.

The Center for the History of Political Econom (CHOPE): Visiting Scholars program 2023-24

The Center for the History of Political Economy at Duke University is now accepting applications for the 2023-24 Visiting Scholars program.

Each year the Center brings together Visiting Scholars who are pursuing their own research projects in the history of political economy. Visiting Scholars may come to the Center for either a semester, a full academic year (which runs from the end of August to the beginning of May), or a twelve-month period. (Those who wish to come for shorter stays may wish to consult the "Academic Visits" section.) Though the principal purpose of the program is to allow successful applicants to pursue their own research, Visiting Scholars are invited to join a vibrant intellectual community by participating in the many other programs (e.g., workshops, HOPE lunches, and conferences) that the Center offers. More junior scholars may also wish to sit in on classes during term and to participate in the "Summer in the Archives" program.

Application Deadline: 2 January 2023
