Heterodox Economics Newsletter

Issue 239 December 03, 2018 web pdf Heterodox Economics Directory

It is now quite evident that tackling climate change is a major economic challenge of the 21st century. Against this backdrop, I was intrigiued to find that some members of the European Central Banking System are now actively thinking about an agenda on how to incorporate climate-considerations in central banking activities. The first progress report of the associated "Network for Greening the Financial System" explores general options for introducing criteria for assessing the financial risks arising from climate change and the use of fossil fuels - as, for instance, steming from a reliance on emission-intensive inputs or investments in climate-vulnerable sectors - and introducing these criteria in the broader operations related to macroeconomic surveillance and financial stability assessments. Such an approach is surely laudable as it essentially aims to influence the behavior of private actors in the financial sector to engage in similar efforts for assessing risks emerging from climate change and to adapt their investment strategies accordingly. However, the strategy is also cast within the current conceptual and theoretical constraints: it aims to design more appropriate incentive-schemes by employing and extending traditional risk-assessment tools to encourage greater sensibility for climate-concerns and operates fully within the given mandate of the European Central Banking System.

As already said I find this laudable and ambitious because this strategy surely represents a step in the right direction. Nevertheless I wonder, whether such efforts - if successively implemented in due time - would really exhaust the institutional potential of central banks for fighting climate change. In theoretical terms, climate change can be seen as a coordination problem (arising from a repeated prisoners' dilemma) with many, many players. In such a constellation it can often be beneficial to assign a stronger role to centralized decision-making instead of relying on decentralized coordination. Applying this more abstract argument to the case at hand would probably imply an even more ambitious strategy for Central Banks by, for instance, widening their mandate to also engage in financing for more long-term innovations to the benefit of future generations. A concrete proposal could draw, for instance, on Modern Monetary Theory and the works on the entrepreneurial role of the state to provide a clear-cut roadmap for doing so. Such a suggestion would not be that radical as it neither implies to overburden central banks nor would it lead to the conclusion that the state should solely direct the path of innovation; it would rather follow the modest Popperian principle of piecemeal engineering by aiming to develop novel tools for resolving a major problem for the further development of mankind.

Seeing such a strategy complement the efforts currently undertaken by the "Network for Greening the Financial System" would probably induce me to tell my children slightly more optimistic bedtime-stories, so, hey, there is also an incentive-component here!

All the best,

Call for Papers

"Enlightening the Future: The Challenge for Organizations" - Marxist Organization Studies sub-theme at the European Group for Organizational Studies (EGOS) 2019 Conference (Edinburgh, July 2019)

4-6 July 2019 | Edinburgh, UK

In 2019, the aim is to build on the success of the eight previous EGOS Marxist studies sub-themes in bringing together people who share an interest in drawing on Marx's ideas to advance management and organization studies. The organizers of the EGOS 2019 Colloquium have called for papers on the theme “Enlightening the future” and Marxism, being one of more important children of the Enlightenment, has much to contribute to this theme. With its aspiration to bring human reason to bear on the organization of production—displacing the “anarchy” of the market and “despotism” of capital—Marxist work is particularly well placed to contribute to the examination of challenge to organizations posed by the Enlightenment and its current impasse.

We welcome all papers that engage Marxist theory and organizational analysis, both understood in the broadest possible terms. We particularly welcome that address the following:

We are not dogmatic in an attachment to any specific kind of Marxism. Indeed, all kinds are welcome and we also welcome non-Marxists those who wish to critique Marxist analysis. In previous years our sub-theme has enjoyed lively debate spanning a wide range of approaches. Some scholars have sought to integrate insights from organization studies into a Marxist framework, while others have examined how Marxist insights may fruitfully add analytical value to other research traditions.

We invite contributions that either (a) enrich our understanding of the empirical world of organizations based on Marxist theoretical foundations, or (b) enrich Marxist theory in a way that promises deeper understanding of that world.

Following EGOS guidelines, submissions take the form of “short papers” of up to 3,000 words, which, upon acceptance, are then developed into full papers (of up to 8,000 words) in time for presentation at the Colloquium. Please find the original call as well as more information on the conference here. Papers should be uploaded via the EGOS website. More information on the submission procedure can be found here.

Submission deadline: 14 January 2019

2nd Vienna Conference on Pluralism in Economics (Vienna, April 2019)

15-16 April 2019 | Vienna, 2019

Among the social sciences, economics is in a dominant position. Economic approaches and indicators are overrepresented in the public discourse on societal, political, or environmental phenomena. Other social sciences often struggle to get their voices heard although their perspectives are valuable complements to conventional economic analysis. At the same time, a rather narrow conception of what constitutes economics leads to a neglect of many schools of economic thought that have existed throughout history and still exist today. This reduces the potential for a holistic understanding of and adequate solutions to real world Problems.

Therefore, the objective of this conference is twofold. First, it shall contribute to an understanding of contemporary challenges from a broader social science perspective. Second, it aims at highlighting various schools of economic thought, their core concepts and approaches, and how they can contribute to a better understanding of our complex reality. We explicitly encourage contributions from all social sciences, including economics, as well as inter- and transdisciplinary approaches.

The following topics will be at the core of the conference:

Specific contributions may be from the topics of e.g. climate change, globalization, well-being and development, power, the rise of the populist vote, the welfare state, distribution and inequality, labor, financial markets, digitalization and others. All theoretical assumptions should be explicitly reflected upon in the submissions. Advanced students are highly encouraged to participate.

Abstract for Application: 300-500 words.

31st Annual Conference of the Society for Advancement of Socio-Economics: "Fathomless Future: Algorithmic and Imagined" (New York City, June 2019)

27-29 June 2019 | New York City, USA

A varienty of calls have been published for the 31st Annual Conference SASE conference.

About the conference

This conference will feature papers all across topics of traditional concern for socio-economics, we especially welcome submissions addressing these changes in politics, the economy, and society at large. How can we understand the direction in which we are headed? What are the various ways to regulate these processes? How are these changes influencing inequalities, democracy, labor, communities, and the international balance of power? How should we think of time in social life? What role does imagination play in the economy? Will the mechanization of human cognition lead to a mindless social universe? How are identities being reconfigured? What has happened to human expectations, hopes, and predictions? How can we (re)gain control over our collective futures?

Established in 1989, SASE owes its remarkable success to the determination to provide a platform for creative research addressing important social problems. Throughout its three decades, SASE has encouraged and hosted rigorous work of any methodological or theoretical bent from around the world based on the principle that innovative research emerges from paying attention to wider context and connecting knowledge developed in different fields. SASE is committed to diverse membership and lively intellectual debates and encourages panels that include or are likely to include a diverse group of participants. This conference will also be an occasion to celebrate SASE’s 30th anniversary.

“Alternatives to Capitalism” Research Network I

The recent and yet unresolved Great Recession has revealed just how unjust, inefficient and unsustainable contemporary capitalism has become. This has revitalized public and academic debate about the future of capitalism and the urgent need to envision and enact alternatives that can help tackle the multiple crises that societies are currently facing: high and rising inequality of income and power, eroding democracy, human-induced climate change and environmental destruction. As income and wealth inequality have intensified within capitalist societies, people’s sense of voice or control over longstanding societal institutions has also diminished. In response, many people across the globe have joined together to create new futures through alternative systems, institutions, organizations and other collectives, and relationships. Our network encourages research and scholarship on such collective efforts to create more transformative, egalitarian, horizontal or non-hierarchical practices, relations, social movements, groups, organizations, and societies. Moreover, our network provides an engaging forum for discussing and envisioning alternatives.

The broad aim of this research network is to advance the international, comparative and interdisciplinary study of alternatives to capitalism and its associated institutions. More specifically, the research network has three goals:

  1. To bridge the disparate interpretative frameworks that exist by engaging in a theoretical systematization of the literature;
  2. To map existing alternatives embedded within various socio-economic and geographic contexts;
  3. To encourage the use of innovative research methods that can provide new insights and reach broader audiences.

Contributors are invited to investigate and analyse the practices, strategies and discourses being used by different social groups to enhance and exercise social power rooted in the voluntary association of people and based on the capacity to engage in collective action of various sorts. Topics of interest include, but are not limited to: cooperatives (worker/producer/consumer) and cooperativism; political and ethical consumerism; eco-villages and sustainable communities; community and practice-based initiatives; the future of work; radical lifestyles; utopias and alternative futures; prefigurative initiatives and prefigurative politics; direct democracy and municipalism; commons and commoning; alternative forms of organisation and governance; anti-capitalist trade unions and political parties; transformative social innovation; alternative media and other forms of alternative social reproduction. We are particularly interested in the ways in which the State and the market interact with these alternatives through mechanisms of facilitation, co-optation, or repression.

Please submit your proposals (paper abstracs of max. 1000 words or session proposals) using the online system at this link.

Early career scholars are eligible to apply for the Early Career Workshop. If selected, the conference fee cost, the full conference accommodation and the additional night of accommodation for the Workshop will be covered. More info here.

For grad students presenting in our network, we may have access to reasonably priced accommodation, please check later for more info.

Please find further information in the original call here.

Submission deadline: 14 January 2019


Deadline as well as information regarding the submission process can be found at the end of the last Mini-Conference Call.

Mini-Conference on "Global Value Chains Analysis: Past, Present, and the Future"

Global value chain (GVC) analysis has reached a milestone with over twenty years of research. Ananalytical framework for understanding the global fragmentation of manufacturing and services as keyprocesses of globalization, GVC research has helped us conceptualize and anticipate a variety of impacts,opportunities and challenges, posed by global industries on firms, workers, local communities, naturalenvironments and national developmental paths. A series of forthcoming books on GVCs take stock ofthe breadth of research conducted thus far and consolidates key contributions, laying a basis for futureresearch into the impact of these global processes on our economies, politics, and societies across scalesand geographical locations (Barrientos 2019; De Marchi, Di Maria, and Gereffi 2018; Gereffi, Ponte, andRaj-Reichert 2019; Gereffi 2018, Ponte 2019). A key characteristic of analytical progression in the GVCdomain is its inter-disciplinary openness to research for example in Economic Geography andInternational Business (Cook et al. 2018), amongst others.

We are interested in papers on the following key themes which are innovative in their scope, methods,and ideas. We are particularly interested in inter-disciplinary contributions. Papers can be cross-cuttingin its thematic focus.

Mini-Conference on "Socio-Economics Revisited: Economic Sociology Meets Heterodox Economics"

Revisiting the intellectual project of socio-economics therefore requires a revitalization of the conversation between economic sociology and those non-neoclassical strands of economics that are usually labelled as heterodox, reaching across the theoretical as well as normative and political spectrum from Marxian and Postkeynesian via institutional and evolutionary to Austrian economics. Adding to the rejection of neoclassical equilibrium analyses, their common ground lies in a shared vision of capitalist market economies as shaped by uncertainty, instability, novelty, conflict, and persistent change. Crucially, this vision of economic affairs also characterises the major strands of economic sociology.

The SASE mini-conference “Socio-Economics Revisited: Economic Sociology Meets Heterodox Economics” is meant to promote the conversation between economic sociology and heterodox economics. Key questions to be explored are as follows:

7th Euroacademia International Conference on "The European Union and the Politicization of Europe" (Bruges, Jan. 2019)

25-26 January 2019 | Bruges, Belgium

The 7th International Conference ‘The European Union and the Politicization of Europe’ aims to survey some of the current debates in EU studies and addresses once more the challenges of the EU polity in a context of multiple crises that confronted Europe in recent years. It supports a transformative view that invites to dialogue balanced weights of optimism and pessimism in a belief that the unfold of current events and the way EU deals with delicate problems will put an increased pressure in the future on matters of accountability and will require some institutional adjustments that address democratic requirements for decision making. However in its present shape and context the EU does not look able to deliver soon appropriate answers to democratic demands. In neo-functionalist slang we can say as an irony that the actual crisis in the EU legitimacy is a ‘spillover’ effect of institutional choices made some time before. To address the EU’s democratic deficit however is not to be a sceptic and ignore the benefits that came with it but to acknowledge the increasing popular dissatisfaction with ‘occult’ office politics and with the way EU tackles daily problems of public concern while the public is more and more affected by decisions taken at the European level. The question to be addressed in the conference is weather the increasing politicization of the EU will lead to a full democratization of EU politics or to increasing fragmentation and division.

Is the EU becoming an increasingly politicized entity? Is the on-going politicization of Europe a structured or a messy one? Do political parties within the European Parliament act in a manner that strengthens the view of the EU as an articulate political system? Are there efficient ways for addressing the democratic deficit issue? Can we find usable indicators for detecting an emerging European demos and a European civil society? Does an Europeanization of the masses take place or the EU remains persistently a genuinely elitist project? Did the Lisbon Treaty introduce significant changes regarding the challenges facing the EU? Can we see any robust improvements in the accountability of the EU decision making processes? Are there alternative ways of looking at the politicization processes and redistributive policies inside the EU? What is the impact of Brexit for the future of the EU? Can we expect a future of European solidarity or division? These are only few of the large number of questions that unfold when researchers or practitioners look at the EU. It is the aim of the 7th International Conference ‘The European Union and the Politicization of Europe’ to address in a constructive manner such questions and to offer a platform for dissemination of research results or puzzles that can contribute to a better understanding of the on-going process of politicization within the European Union.

The conference welcomes papers advancing contributions from the widest area of inquiry related to the EU, from theoretic contributions and methodological proposals to case studies at EU level and regional or national levels. It aims to be an interdisciplinary event that adds value to the debate about the present and future of the EU based on the firm belief that deepening the specialized dialogue on EU topics leads to asserting the European critical thinking and to a better understanding of European realities. Papers addressing current challenges from the Eurozone crisis to Brexit or re-emergence of nationalist parties and attitudes in member states as well as security studies and IR papers are especially welcomed.

The conference is organized yet by no means restricted to the following panels:

Conference and Special issue on "The Globalization Project: Falling Behind or Failing Forward?" (Torino, June 2019)

13-15 June 2019 | Torino, Italy

Alternate Routes and the University of Turin, in conjunction with the gallery exhibition Behind the Indian Boom: Invisible India, invites submissions for our latest conference and special issue. A retrospective with future implications: 2019 marks eleven years since the Great Recession and bank bailouts began, ten years since the Keynesian stimulus comeback, nine years since the recent austerity push, three years since the Paris Agreement, twenty years since the launch of the Euro, thirty years since the Canada-US Free Trade Agreement came into effect, and more than forty years since the ‘other’ 9/11 and onset of monetarism. How might we evaluate the longue duree of neoliberalism, and what might more recent trends like rightwing populism and illiberalism mean for the future of neoliberalism and the globalization project? How are labour and other social movements responding? What role, if any, for social democracy? And what to make of twenty-first century socialism?

Alternate Routes invites panel and paper proposals for its upcoming annual conference that probe the dialectic of continuity and change. To encourage broad intellectual engagement and debate, we are seeking paper and panel proposals on a wide range of topics relating to these trends, including but not limited to:

To submit your proposal, please click here or visit www.alternateroutes.ca. A selection of papers will be considered as part of a special issue publication of Alternate Routes: A Journal of Critical Social Research.

Rethinking Macroeconomics: Call for research on gender-aware macroeconomic models

As part of its second year of activities, the Rethinking Macroeconomics Working Group, a part of the Care Work and the Economy (CWE-GAM) Project, is issuing an open call for research papers focused on producing theoretical gender-aware macroeconomic models that incorporate care activities—of ourselves and one another, both paid and unpaid. This charge is intentionally a wide one, as the field is so new and the important questions so numerous. In thinking more specifically about how best to develop a research proposal, we strongly encourage you to keep the following project priorities in mind. The research and modeling should:

We would like the set of models to reflect a diversity of methodological approaches, as well as initiate dialogue across schools of thought or combine the best of different modeling tools and norms, yielding a “hybrid” approach. The objectives and work program of the entire research project, as well as the paper abstracts for the Rethinking Macroeconomics Working Group’s first year of activities, can be viewed here.

In addition to producing a paper on macroeconomic modeling, scholars will collectively contribute to a theoretical modeling working group that will give feedback to one another as well as contribute to and draw from other parts of the CWE-GAM Project. In addition to the Rethinking Macroeconomics Working Group, there are two additional groups of scholars working on South Korea as a case study: the Understanding and Measuring Care Group focuses on estimating the care economy and collecting both time use and qualitative data on paid and unpaid care; and the Gender-Aware Applied Modelling Group is constructing a computable general equilibrium (CGE) model of the Korean economy that incorporates care and gender dynamics. There will be numerous opportunities to both draw from and contribute to the work of these other groups.

Please, email a brief (2 pages max) research paper proposal to elissa.braunstein@colostate.edu. The proposal should include the following:

YSI’s North America convening: "Beyond the great men narrative" (Los Angeles, Feb. 2019)

22-24 February 2019 | Los Angeles, USA

Beyond the great men narrative

For many economists the history of their profession is the history of a few outstanding, mostly male, individuals whose work was crucial in shaping the profession’s agenda and whose names live on in their association with parameters, theories, principles, etc. Much of the work in the history of economic thought has done little to dispute this view as it is still mostly centered on big names and tends to focus on their contributions to economic analysis. A growing segment of the literature, however, has explored the broader context in which economists act, their relationship to public policy debates, the conformation of communities, the construction and diffusion of tools and practices, etc. This work has brought to light a larger cast of characters and offers a richer understanding of the evolution of economics and of its role in society.

As part of our effort to foster this kind of work we invite contributions that challenge the great men narrative. Research on any geographical location or historical period will be considered, and topics may include, among others:

Applications should be made here. Please find the original call here. Further questions can be directed to Juan Acosta and Christina Laskaridis

Dust Bowls of Empire - Imperialism, Environmental Politics, and the Injustice of "Green" Capitalism

by Hannah Holleman | 2018, Yale University Press

The 1930s witnessed a harrowing social and ecological disaster, defined by the severe nexus of drought, erosion, and economic depression that ravaged the U.S. southern plains. Known as the Dust Bowl, this crisis has become a major referent of the climate change era, and has long served as a warning of the dire consequences of unchecked environmental despoliation.

Through innovative research and a fresh theoretical lens, Hannah Holleman reexamines the global socioecological and economic forces of settler colonialism and imperialism precipitating this disaster, explaining critical antecedents to the acceleration of ecological degradation in our time. Holleman draws lessons from this period that point a way forward for environmental politics as we confront the growing global crises of climate change, freshwater scarcity, extreme energy, and soil degradation.

Written by top experts in their respective fields, this book will be useful to students and faculty who want to not only rethink economics, but also to offer an alternative and coherent economic analysis to the orthodoxy.

Since the beginning of the twenty-first century, there has been an unprecedented move towards ‘rethinking economics’ due to the damages generated by the global financial crisis that burst in 2007-2008. Almost a decade after this crisis, policy is still unable to provide all citizens greater wellbeing or at least an encouraging economic future. This book addresses the urgent need to rethink economics by providing readers at all levels with thoughtful chapters on a range of relevant economic topics.

Editors Louis-Philippe Rochon and Sergio Rossi provide a first-class compilation of contemporary economic problems as well as a criticism of mainstream economics and economic policy, thereby offering a thorough investigation of these issues and policy solutions along alternative lines of thought. The book includes chapters on rethinking fiscal and monetary policies, international trade, the role of the State, money, banks, economic growth, the environment, development policies, energy, healthcare, and more. Special attention is paid to the importance of institutions and power relationships within the economic system.

Written by top experts in their respective fields, this book will be useful to students and faculty who want to not only rethink economics, but also to offer an alternative and coherent economic analysis to the orthodoxy. Economists and policy-makers will also find this book to be of much interest.

All Fall Down – Debt, Deregulation and Financial Crises

by Jane D’Arista | 2018, Edward Elgar Publishing

All Fall Down traces the ways in which changes in financial structure and regulation eroded monetary control and led to historically high levels of debt relative to GDP in both developed and emerging economies. Rising stocks of debt drove the global financial system into crisis in 2008 when households, businesses, financial institutions and the public sector in some countries strained to generate sufficient income for debt service. The stagnation and fall in asset prices that followed began the process of unwinding that led to a run on the financial sector by the financial sector.

This engaging examination describes critical developments that changed the structure of US financial markets as well as developments and innovations in US credit markets that created the context for crisis. It discusses the advent of dollar hegemony, the critical role of international reserves in generating credit, the emergence of the debt bubble in the 1980s and the mounting risks of debt in the new millennium. The author also proposes a systemic approach to monetary control, offering two new reform proposals. The analysis concludes that reforms are needed in order to support sustainable economic activity in the US and global economies.

This volume will appeal to students and scholars of economics interested in international finance and banking, financial regulation and monetary policy implementation. It will also be of interest to business economists, lawyers, policymakers and journalists concerned with the effects of financial instability and involved in ongoing debates on financial and monetary reform.

Extracting Profit: Neoliberalism, Imperialism and the New Scramble for Africa

by Lee Wengraf | 2018, Haymarket Books

A piercing historical explanation of poverty and inequality in African societies today and the social impact of resource-driven growth, Extracting Profit explains why Africa, in the first decade and a half of the twenty-first century, has undergone an economic boom. Rising global prices in oil and minerals have produced a scramble for Africa’s natural resources, led by investment from U.S., European and Chinese companies, and joined by emerging economies from around the globe. African economies have reached new heights, even outpacing rates of growth seen in much of the rest of the world. Examined through the lens of case studies of the oil fields of the Niger River Delta, the Chad-Cameroon Pipeline and the East African infrastructure boom, this period of “Africa rising” did not lead to the creation of jobs, but has instead fueled the extraction of natural resources, profits accruing to global capital, and an increasingly wealthy African ruling class.

Extracting Profit argues that the roots of today’s social and economic conditions lie in the historical legacies of colonialism and the imposition of so-called “reforms” by global financial institutions such as the World Bank and International Monetary Fund. The chokehold of debt and austerity of the late twentieth century paved the way for severe assaults on African working classes through neoliberal privatization and deregulation. And while the scramble for Africa’s resources has heightened the pace of ecological devastation, examples from Somalia and the West African Ebola outbreak reveal a frightening surge of militarization on the part of China and the U.S.

Yet this “new scramble” has not gone unchallenged. With accounts of platinum workers’ struggles in South Africa, Nigerian labor organizing and pro-democracy upheavals in Uganda and Burkina Faso, Extracting Profit offers several narratives of grassroots organizing and protest, pointing to the potential for resistance to global capital and fundamental change, in Africa and beyond.

Jean-Jacques Rousseau and Adam Smith: A Philosophical Encounter

by Charles L. Griswold | 2017, Routledge

Jean-Jacques Rousseau and Adam Smith are giants of eighteenth century thought. The heated controversy provoked by their competing visions of human nature and society still resonates today. Smith himself reviewed Rousseau's Discourse on Inequality, and his perceptive remarks raise an intriguing question: what would a conversation between these two great thinkers look like?

In this outstanding book Charles Griswold analyzes, compares and evaluates some of the key ways in which Rousseau and Smith address what could be termed "the question of the self". Both thinkers discuss what we are by nature (in particular, whether we are sociable or not), who we have become, whether we can know ourselves or each other, how best to articulate the human condition, what it would mean to be free, and whether there is anything that can be done to remedy our deeply imperfect condition. In the course of examining their rich and contrasting views, Griswold puts Rousseau and Smith in dialogue by imagining what they might say in reply to one another. Griswold’s wide-ranging exploration includes discussion of issues such as narcissism, self-falsification, sympathy, the scope of philosophy, and the relation between liberty, religion and civic order.

A superb exploration of two major philosophers, Jean-JacquesRousseau and Adam Smith: A Philosophical Encounter is essential reading for students and scholars of these two figures, eighteenth century philosophy, the Enlightenment, moral philosophy, and the history of ideas. It will also be of interest to those in related disciplines such as political theory, economics, and religion.

Money - 5,000 Years of Debt and Power

by Michel Aglietta | 2018, Verso books

As the financial crisis reached its climax in September 2008, the most important figure on the planet was Federal Reserve chairman Ben Bernanke. The whole financial system was collapsing, with little to stop it. When a senator asked Bernanke what would happen if the central bank did not carry out its rescue package, he replied, “If we don’t do this, we may not have an economy on Monday.”

What saved finance, and the Western economy, was fiscal and monetary stimulus – an influx of money, created ad hoc. It was a strategy that raised questions about the unexamined nature of money itself, an object suddenly revealed as something other than a neutral signifier of value. Through its grip on finance and the debt system, money confers sovereign power on the economy. If confidence in money is not maintained, crises follow. Looking over the last 5,000 years, Michel Aglietta explores the development of money and its close connection to sovereign power. This book employs the tools of anthropology, history and political economy in order to analyse how political structures and monetary systems have transformed one another. We can thus grasp the different eras of monetary regulation and the crises capitalism has endured throughout its history.

Money and Government - The Past and Future of Economics

by Robert Skidelsky | 2018, Yale University Press

The dominant view in economics is that money and government should play only minor roles in economic life. Economic outcomes, it is claimed, are best left to the "invisible hand" of the market. Yet these claims remain staunchly unsettled. The view taken in this important new book is that the omnipresence of uncertainty makes money and government essential features of any market economy.

Since Adam Smith, classical economics has espoused non-intervention in markets. The Great Depression brought Keynesian economics to the fore; but stagflation in the 1970s brought a return to small-state orthodoxy. The 2008 global financial crash should have brought a reevaluation of that stance; instead the response has been punishing austerity and anemic recovery. This book aims to reintroduce Keynes’s central insights to a new generation of economists, and embolden them to return money and government to the starring roles in the economic drama that they deserve.

Mythologies of State and Monopoly Power

by Michael E. Tigar | 2018, Monthly Press Review

“Mythologies,” writes veteran human rights lawyer Michael Tigar, “are structures of words and images that portray people, institutions, and events in ways that mask an underlying reality.” For instance, the “Justice Department” appears, by its very nature and practice, to appropriate “justice” as the exclusive property of the federal government. In his brilliantly acerbic collection of essays, Tigar reveals, deconstructs, and eviscerates mythologies surrounding the U.S. criminal justice system, racism, free expression, workers’ rights, and international human rights.

Lawyers confront mythologies in the context of their profession. But the struggle for human liberation makes mythology-busting the business of all of us. The rights we have learned to demand are not only trivialized in our current system of social relations; they are, in fact, antithetical to that system. With wit and eloquence, Michael Tigar draws on legal cases, philosophy, literature, and fifty-years’ experience as an attorney, activist, and teacher to bust the mythologies and to argue for real change.

Reification and Representation: Architecture in Politco-Media-Complex

by Graham Cairns | 2018, Routledge

The relationship between politics and the public relations industry is controversial and, at times, polemic. However, one component of this relationship that has yet to be investigated is the role of architecture. Arguing for a fundamental reconfiguration of our understanding of ‘political architecture’, this book suggests it is not only a question of constructed buildings, but equally a case of mediated imagery.  

Considered through examples of architecture as a backdrop for photo shoots by politicians in the democracies of the United States and the United Kingdom, this book suggests these images give us both a better understanding of recent developments in the Western political economy and the architectural and urban developments of the late 20th and early 21st Centuries.

Using case studies of Margaret Thatcher, Tony Blair, David Cameron, Barack Obama, George W. Bush and Donald Trump, this book represents a ground-breaking triangular analysis that will be essential reading for scholars in architecture, politics, media and communication studies.

The European Illusion: Why we need new strategies towards the EU and beyond

by Attac Austria | 2018, Attac

Record poverty in southern Europe, fences and guns in response to refugees, Brexit on the horizon – the European Union is facing the deepest crisis in its history. 

But does the EU have the potentialto become the "social and democratic Europe" that has been presented to us as a political ideal for decades?

In order to find answers to these questions, it is necessary to demystify many of our most beloved images of the EU. We must shatter the European illusion - because at its core are competition andneoliberal economic policy. Changing this would be near to impossible. But if the EU cannot be saved and a return to the nation state is no solution, what then?

The European Illusion analyses the EU’s role in key policy areas and reveals the truth behind some of the most strongly held beliefs about the European Union. It proposes a starting point for a newdiscussion for social movement activists and progressives. Instead of arguing over the false dichotomy of “reform or exit”, we must look for new strategies towards the EU and beyond.

The History of Money and Monetary Arrangements: Insights from the Baltic and North Seas Region

by Thomas Marmefelt | 2018, Routledge

Today, most money is credit money, created by commercial banks. While credit can finance innovation, excessive credit can lead to boom/bust cycles, such as the recent financial crisis. This highlights how the organization of our monetary system is crucial to stability. One way to achieve this is by separating the unit of account from the medium of exchange and in pre-modern Europe, such a separation existed. This new volume examines this idea of monetary separation and this history of monetary arrangements in the North and Baltic Seas region, from the Hanseatic League onwards.

This book provides a theoretical analysis of four historical cases in the Baltic and North Seas region, with a view to examining evolution of monetary arrangements from a new monetary economics perspective. Since the objective exhange value of money (its purchasing power), reflects subjective individual valuations of commodities, the author assesses these historical cases by means of exchange rates. Using theories from new monetary economics , the book explores how the units of account and their media of exchange evolved as social conventions, and offers new insight into the separation between the two. Through this exploration, it puts forward that money is a social institution, a clearing device for the settlement of accounts, and so the value of money, or a separate unit of account, ultimately results from the size of its network of users.

The History of Money and Monetary Arrangements offers a highly original new insight into monetary arrangments as an evolutionary process. It will be of great interest to an international audience of scholars and students, including those with an interest in economic history, evolutionary economics and new monetary economics.

World in Crisis: a global analysis of Marx’s law of profitability

by Michael Roberts and Guglielmo Carchedi | 2018, Haymarket Books

Most mainstream economists view capitalism’s periodic breakdowns as nothing more than temporary aberrations from an otherwise unbroken path toward prosperity. For Marxists, this fundamental flaw has long been acknowledged as a central feature of the free-market system. This groundbreaking volume brings together Marxist scholars from around the world to offer an empirically grounded defense of Marx’s law of profitability and its central role in explaining capitalist crises.
