Issue-32, September 29, 2006

From the Editor

This issue marks the beginning of the third year of the Newsletter. What is most noticeable over the past two years is the increased in and broadening of the content. In short the Newsletter is getting bigger and better, thanks to all of you who send me material.

In recent Newsletters I have included announcements about the forthcoming ICAPE's second international conference ("Economic Pluralism for the 21st Century") next June 1-3 at the University of Utah in Salt Lake City. Unfortunately the description made the conference sound very specialized and narrow--as if it were seeking only papers on the topic of pluralism per se. Quite the contrary, this is a "big tent" conference at which all topics and schools of thought are welcome. The goal of the Conference is to create a uniquely diverse and inclusive conference, open to all who share ICAPE's commitment to the promotion of pluralism in economic scholarship and education. To make this happen, however, we need to include your work and the work of other scholars from the theoretical traditions and professional associations in which your work is rooted.

If you would like to participate, please send a brief abstract (200-250 words) to Rob Garnett (  Or, to learn more about the conference, including the three scheduled plenary sessions ( , please visit

The Newsletter contains new calls for papers as well as conference announcements for participants. It does seem that heterodox economists are getting more and more active. In addition, the Newsletter is becoming more international as it includes announcements in languages other than English, job advertisements that are located outside of North America, and non-US-based newsletters. I urge you to check out the EAEPE newsletter because it has a very interesting interview with Kurt Rothchild and a piece by Kazimierz Laski that deals with Kalecki.

Jobs for Heterodox Economists: the Newsletter carries job advertisements from 10 universities and colleges. I would like this number to increase—so please send me any information about jobs you have going at your place of work. In addition, many of us have doctoral students who are not in a position to apply for a tenure/permanent position but rather desperately need a 1-3 year temporary position so to get teaching experience and finish their dissertation. I would like to get information about those jobs as well so that I can send them out to those desperate students.

Finally, I have come up with a set depressing statistics regarding heterodox economics in the United States: from 1988 to 2000, the number of heterodox economists as represented by membership in AFEE, ASE, and URPE and subscribe to the JPKE fell by nearly 50% to around 750. Perhaps this was due to retirements or just a lack of interest in heterodox economics; or it may have been partially due to the lack of doctoral students. On the other hand, the percentage of US heterodox economists that participated in more than one heterodox association increased by 30% to a whopping 12.8%. These figures provide only a rough impression of the current state of heterodox economics in the US, but it is an impression that should give rise to serious discussion.

The London Socialist Historians Group

The Cold War, which began sixty years ago next year with the announcement of the Truman Doctrine and the creation of the Cominform, shaped the world in the second half of the twentieth century. Its most intense phase came to an end in the early sixties, but, with the accompanying threat of nuclear barbarism, it continued to exercise a major influence until the “collapse of Communism” in 1989.

The London Socialist Historians Group is organising a one-day conference on the Cold War, to be held at the Institute of Historical Research, Senate House, Malet St, London, WC1E 7HU on Saturday 3rd February 2007.

We invite papers on economic, political, military, intellectual and cultural aspects of the Cold War and on questions such as what was the role of movements in the Eastern bloc in ending cold war? How was the Western left affected? What did the West win? What did the ex-Communist blocs gain or lose?

Proposals for papers should be sent to Keith Flett, 38 Mitchley Road, London N17 9HG or to  by 1st December 2006.

Association for Social Economics Sessions

February 23-25, 2007
New York City, NY

The Association for Social Economics would like to sponsor at least one session at the annual meetings of the Eastern Economic Association (EEA) in New York City at the Crowne Plaza Times Square (1605 Broadway) from February 23 - 25, 2007. Conference information is available from the EEA web site:

Paper topics should be related to the topics and methodologies associated with social economics. Specifically, we are interested in papers that investigate the relationship between social values and/or ethics and either economic life or economics as a discipline. Appropriate paper themes include: social economic methodologies; the relationship between social economics and other economic schools; perspectives on economic individuals and personhood; alternative models of economic behavior including cooperation, altruism, community, and solidarism; markets and morality; conceptions of economic justice, including applications to income distribution; definitions of equity and equality; contributions of capabilities theory to economic theorizing; the concept of human dignity as a lens on economic life; the causes, consequences and solutions to poverty; pragmatism and economics; political economy of gender, race-ethnicity, and class; ecological economics and sustainability; social capital as an construct; consumption and economic culture; humanist approaches; and analyses of the work of past social economists.

If you would like to have a paper considered for an ASE session, please send your proposal to Ellen Mutari, ASE Eastern Regional Director via e-mail or postal mail; email is preferred. Attachments should be in Word or WordPerfect. The deadline for submissions is Friday, October 20, 2006. In your proposal, include:

(1) Name, postal address, telephone, fax, e-mail address
(2) Paper title
(3) A 100-150 word (maximum) abstract
(4) Your affiliation with ASE (member, student, etc.) If selected for the program, it is expected that you are already a member of or will join the Association.

I may select Session Chairs from the participants. In lieu of formal discussants, the Session Chair will open the floor for questions and discussion: first for panelists and then for the audience. If you are an ASE member attending the EEA meetings and would like to Chair a session, please let me know.

Please do not cancel your attendance once you are selected for the program. It makes it very difficult for both the ASE and the EEA.

The Social Capital Foundation- 2007 Conference


Multi-ethnicity is subject to a heavily contested debate. Its importance for society is huge: first, because it developed considerably in the Western countries in only a few decades; second, because its emergence involves - beyond an increased ability for cross-cultural communication - the transformation of crucial ancestral dimensions, such as culture, biology, family relationships, and relation to ancestors, as well as concepts of sexuality and death, and belonging to a nation or community. These transformations may have considerable impact on social behavior in a wide range of contexts, including economic life and political democracy. All these transformations are far from being an "easy process", contrary to what political leadership may suggest. This conference will bring together social scientists, economists, policymakers, social workers and the widest spectrum of the involved players to explore the issues arising in an increasingly multiethnic society. The objective is to make progress on the understanding of these issues, by shedding light on some current developments and drafting innovative, practical responses. The Social Link Cycle is a line of conferences dedicated to the bond between people within society, and its contemporary crisis.

Critique of Political Economy

Critique of Political Economy ( ) (COPE), a new, interdisciplinary, refereed journal devoted to the critique of political economy, is a project of the International Working Group on Value Theory ( ). Edited by Alan Freeman (University of Greenwich, UK) and Andrew Kliman (Pace University, New York, USA), with the assistance of a working editorial board, COPE will initially appear annually and be primarily an online journal. The first volume is scheduled for publication in March 2007.

COPE seeks to challenge and break down the separation between political economy and social knowledge as a whole. Our editorial board includes scholars in the fields of education, philosophy, political science, sociology, as well as economics and accounting. We invite submissions from researchers working in these and related fields, including researchers from outside of academia. Contributions from the whole gamut of heterodox economic traditions – including (but not limited to) the Marxist, post-Keynesian, Evolutionary, Schumpeterian, and Institutionalist traditions – are welcome.

We particularly encourage contributions that interrogate the production of economic “knowledge” and contributions that help to challenge the received “Whig History” of economic thought. We also particularly encourage papers from scholars in the global South, papers dealing with the temporal single-system interpretation (TSSI) of Marx’s value theory, and other TSSI-informed theoretical and empirical research.

COPE is steadfastly committed to pluralism. We intend to challenge other journals’ exclusionary practices, and the acceptance of such practices, by demonstrating that critical pluralistic norms promote quality research and genuine development of ideas. We uphold authors’ right to appeal editorial decisions before a panel of disinterested persons, and the right of authors to reply to critiques of their work. We employ a “double-blind” review process, and COPE’s editorial board will work with authors to improve and clarify their work, not act as “gatekeepers.” Although only submissions “accepted for publication” become part of COPE, other submissions that conform to the Scholarship Guidelines of the International Working Group on Value Theory, our parent organization, will be made available on our website as “working papers.”

We encourage you to read our complete Mission Statement, available on our website,

Contributions to the Critique of Political Economy

We welcome articles, essays, and review essays up to 10,000 words long, and we accept book reviews. In keeping with our commitment to pluralism, we ask that submissions conform to the IWGVT Scholarship Guidelines. Manuscripts should be submitted as attached Microsoft Word files, and sent to our e-mail address,

In a separate attached file, please provide a 100-200 word abstract along with the name(s), affilation(s), address(es), e-mail address(es), and telephone and fax number(s) of the author(s). Prospective contributors should consult the Scholarship Guidelines and our “Instructions to Authors,”
both of which are posted on our website, prior to submitting to COPE.

The editors will be happy to answer inquiries sent to our e-mail address. For detailed information: COPE.doc

Workshop focus: There are a variety of strands of what now comes under the moniker Institutional Law and Economics, Neo-Institutional Economics, or just Institutionalism. The purpose of this two-day workshop is to have representatives from these several approaches or strands of Institutionalism present an original paper that describes their respective approach and answer questions from advocates of alternative approaches.

In addition, there will be a roundtable discussion addressing such questions as: How different are the presented approaches? Do these different approaches have their own value-added? ...or…Are we saying the same thing using different language and perspective? Could parts of different approaches be integrated for even more insight? ...or…Do different problems require different approaches?

Job Description:Developand teach required core courses covering economic concepts and quantitative analysis tools appropriate for masters level students in public policy and planning. In addition to teaching these courses, the successful candidate should have expertise in any of the sub-fields of urban, social, or environmental policy and planning covered by the Department.

Background: The Department of Urban and Environmental Policy and Planning has been in existence since 1973. With our traditionally strong policy orientation, the department has now more explicitly embraced the planning interests and orientation of our faculty and students and became accredited by the Planning Accreditation Board on January 1, 2004.

The department views issues pertaining to social, economic and environmental justice, gender, ethnicity, race and class, individual rights and responsibilities, and the equitable distribution of resources as being central to our comprehensive public policy and planning curriculum. Problems and issues are viewed through multiple lenses and interventions are analyzed as they pertain to individuals, families, and communities. The program is primarily focused on US policy and planning issues, however connections to global concerns are also stressed.

Although the department does not offer formal specializations, it has significant teaching and research strengths in a number of sub-fields.
Elective courses and faculty interests and research cluster around the

• land use and growth management planning;
• developing sustainable communities;
• community development,housing, and economic development;
• social policy: poverty, race, children and families;
• environmental justice and toxics;
• natural resource management; and
• roles of community-, faith-, and market-based organizations, in
addition to public sector organizations in addressing social, urban, and environmental problems.

Through the integration of policy and planning, the department seeks to prepare public-spirited individuals for careers in government, nonprofit organizations, citizen advocacy groups, and the private sector. Our goal is to educate a new generation of leaders—“practical visionaries”—who will contribute to solving key public problems by making institutions more responsive to the social and economic needs of communities and by moving toward the sustainable management of environmental resources.

Qualifications:PhD in Economics, Planning, Public Policy, or related field required. Teaching experience and strong publishing and research agenda required.

Economics for Humans

by Julie A. Nelson
(The University of Chicago Press, $16.00 Cloth)
Is it asking too much to demand that businesses be socially and environmentally responsible? When child care and elder care are commercially supplied, is caring turned into just another commodity? Many, believing that economies are cold and heartless systems that operate outside human control, would answer yes. But in this impassioned and perceptive work, Julie A. Nelson debunks theories that teach us that our economic lives are somehow separate from our moral values and our human relationships. Nothing less than a manifesto, Economics for Humans will both invigorate and inspire readers to rethink the way they view the economy, its possibilities, and their place within it.
“A stunning rebuke of conventional assumptions that describe our economic system...Everyone who...cares about social science—should read this book.”
-- Nancy Folbre, author of The Invisible Heart: Economics and Family Values
“Julie Nelson...helps point the way to a richer, more descriptive way of thinking about economic life.”
-- Robert H. Frank, author of Luxury Fever: Money and Happiness in an Era of Excess

Marxism and Ecological Economics
Toward a Red and Green Political Economy

Paul Burkett

• March 2006
• ISBN 90 04 14810 8
• Hardback (x, 358 pp.)
• List price EUR 69.- / US$ 89.-
• Historical Materialism Book Series, 11

This book undertakes the first general assessment of ecological economics from a Marxist point of view, and shows how Marxist political economy can make a substantial contribution to ecological economics. The analysis is developed in terms of four basic issues: (1) nature and economic value; (2) the treatment of nature as capital; (3) the significance of the entropy law for economic systems; (4) the concept of sustainable development. In each case, it is shown that Marxism can help ecological economics fulfill its commitments to multi-disciplinarity, methodological pluralism, and historical openness. In this way, a foundation is constructed for a substantive dialogue between Marxists and ecological economists.

Paul Burkett, Ph.D. (1984) in Economics, Syracuse University, is Professor of Economics at Indiana State University, Terre Haute. His publications on Marxism and ecology include Marx and Nature: A Red and Green Perspective (St. Martin's Press, 1999) and many articles in scholarly journals.

A Marxist Philosophy of Language

Jean-Jacques Lecercle. Translated by Gregory Elliott

• August 2006
• ISBN 90 04 14751 9
• Hardback (210 pp.)
• List price EUR 109.- / US$ 147.-
• Historical Materialism Book Series, 12

The purpose of this book is to give a precise meaning to the formula: English is the language of imperialism. Understanding that statement involves a critique of the dominant views of language, both in the field of linguistics (the book has a chapter criticising Chomsky’s research programme) and of the philosophy of language (the book has a chapter assessing Habermas’s philosophy of communicative action).
The book aims at constructing a Marxist philosophy of language, embodying a view of language as a social, historical, material and political phenomenon. Since there has never been a strong tradition of thinking about language in Marxism, the book provides an overview of the question of Marxism in language (from Stalin’s pamphlet to Voloshinov's book, taking in an essay by Pasolini), and it seeks to construct a number of concepts for a Marxist philosophy of language.
The book belongs to the tradition of Marxist critique of dominant ideologies. It should be particularly useful to those who, in the fields of language study, literature and communication studies, have decided that language is not merely an instrument of communication.

Jean-Jacques Lecercle was educated at the Ecole Normale Supérieure in Paris. From 1999 to 2002 he was Research Professor in the English department at the University of Cardiff, and he is currently Professor of English at the University of Nanterre. He is the author of Interpretation as Pragmatics (Macmillan 1999), Deleuze and Language (Palgrave 2002) and The Force of Language (with Denise Riley, Macmillan 2004).

Althusser- The Detour of Theory

Gregory Elliott

• August 2006
• ISBN 90 04 15337 3
• Hardback (xxiv + 425 pp.)
• List price EUR 89.- / US$ 116.-
• Historical Materialism Book Series, 13 [beeld 24041]

First published in 1987, Althusser, The Detour of Theory was widely received as the fullest account of its subject to date. Drawing on a wide range of hitherto untranslated material, it examined the political and intellectual contexts of Althusser’s ‘return to Marx’ in the mid-1960s; analysed the novel character of the Marxism developed in his major works; charted their author’s subsequent evolution, from his self-criticism to the proclamation of a ‘crisis of Marxism’; and concluded with a balance-sheet of Althusser’s contribution to historical materialism.
For this second edition, Gregory Elliott has added a substantial postscript in which he surveys the posthumous edition of the French philosopher’s work published in the 1990s, from the early writings of the 1940s through to the late texts of the 1980s, relating the unknown Althusser revealed by them to the familiar figure of For Marx and Reading Capital, together with a comprehensive bibliography of Althusser’s oeuvre.

Gregory Elliott was educated at Balliol College, Oxford, where he completed his D.Phil. on Louis Althusser in 1985. An independent translator and writer, his books include Perry Anderson: The Merciless Laboratory of History (1998). His most recent translation is Luc Boltanski and Eve Chiapello’s The New Spirit of Capitalism(2006).

Exploring Marx's Capital: Philosophical, Economic and Political Dimensions Philosophical, Economic and Political Dimensions

Jacques Bidet. Translated by David Fernbach. Preface to the English Edition by Alex Callinicos

• January 2007
• ISBN 90 04 14937 6
• Hardback (400)
• List price EUR 129.- / US$ 168.-
• Historical Materialism Book Series, 14

This book, originally published in French under the title Que faire du Capital?, offers a new interpretation of Marx’s great work. It shows how the novelty and lasting interest of Marx’s theory arises from the fact that, as against the project of a ‘pure’ economics, it is formulated in concepts that have simultaneously an economic and a political aspect, neither of these being separable from the other.

Jacques Bidet conducts an unprecedented investigation of Marx’s work in the spirit of the history of science, exploring it as a process of theoretical development. Traditional exegesis reads the successive drafts of Capital as if they were complementary and mutually illuminated one another. In actual fact, like any scientist, Marx only wrote a new version in order to correct the previous one. He started from ideas borrowed from Ricardo and Hegel, and between one draft and the next it is possible to see these being eliminated and restructured. This labour, moreover, was never fully completed.

The author thus re-assesses Marx’s entire system in its set of constitutive categories: value, market, labour-power, classes, working class, exploitation, production, fetishism, ideology. He seeks to pin down the difficulties that these encountered, and the analytical and critical value they still have today.

Bidet attaches the greatest importance to Marx’s order of exposition, which assigns each concept its place in the overall system, and makes the validity of the construction depend on the pertinence of its initial presuppositions. This is particularly the case with the relationship between market mechanism and capitalism – and thus also between the market and socialism.

Jacques Bidet is Professor at the University of Paris-X, holding the chair of Political Philosophy and Theories of Society. His other publications include Théorie de la modernité (1990), John Rawls et la théorie de la justice (1995), Théorie générale, Théorie du droit, de l’économie et de la politique (1999) and (with Jean-Marc Lachaud) Habermas: Une politique délibérative (1998).

Impersonal Power. History and Theory of the Bourgeois State History and Theory of the Bourgeois State

Heide Gerstenberger. Translated by David Fernbach

• March 2007
• ISBN 90 04 13027 6
• Hardback (904)
• List price EUR 154.- / US$ 199.-
• Historical Materialism Book Series, 15

The point of departure of Heide Gerstenberger’s path-breaking work is a critique of structural-functionalist theory of the state, in both its modernisation theory and materialist variants. Prof. Gerstenberger opposes to these a historical-theoretical explanation that proceeds from the long-term structuring effect of concrete social practice. This is elucidated by detailed investigation of the development of bourgeois state power in the two key examples of England and France. The different complexions that the bourgeois state assumed are presented as the results of processes of social and cultural formation, and thus irreducible to a simple function of capitalism. This approach culminates in the thesis that the bourgeois form of capitalist state power arose only where capitalist societies developed out of already rationalised structures of the Ancien Régime type.

Prof. Heide Gerstenberger has held since 1974 the chair of ‘Theory of the Bourgeois State and Society’ at the University of Bremen. Her publications include Der revolutionäre Konservatismus and Zur politischen Ökonomie der bürgerlichen Gesellschaft. Die historischen Bedingungen ihrer Konstitution in den USA.
