Issue 45: June 21, 2007

From the Editor

Activities for and by heterodox economists continued unabated, as evident of the many new calls for papers and the many conferences and seminars that are taking place this summer. In addition, in the Journals and Newsletters section you will find a new journal listed—The Journal of Philosophical Economics; in the Heterodox Websites section there are two new web sites listed; and in the FYI section you might want to take a look at the data se for global citizenship.

It appears that everyone who attended the ICAPE Conference in Utah had a great time (except for the organizers who were working themselves to death). Such phrases as VERY IMPRESSIVE, EXCELLENT CONFERENCE, GREATLY STIMULATING AND HEARTWARMING CONFERENCE, INTELLECTUALLY STIMULATING TO A HIGH DEGREE, MET LOTS OF VERY INTERESTING PEOPLE, and THE UTAH SETTING WAS SUBLIME seem to spring from everybody’s lips. Moreover because Rob Garnett and his committee worked very hard at fund raising, many graduate students and young professors/lecturers were able to attend the conference. Finally if you want to take advantage of the Conference discount to get some Routledge and University of Michigan Press books, check out the Heterodox Books section in the Newsletter. The next ICAPE conference will be 2010.

One last point. If you found the ‘Hip Heterodoxy’ in the last Newsletter interesting, you will find the TPMCAFE Book Club commentary in the Heterodox Conference section interesting as well.

Association for Institutional Thought [AFIT]

The annual meeting of AFIT will be held
April 23-26, 2008
Denver, Colorado
Hyatt Regency Hotel 800 233 1234
In conjunction with the Western Social Science Association (WSSA) 50th Annual Conference

Theme for the 2008 Conference:
New Directions in Economics: The Emerging Conversation within Heterodox Economics

With recognition of the role of culture in organizing economic activity, institutional work draws its inspiration from messy reality-- the overlap of disciplinary boundaries, the interaction between diverse intellectual traditions, and the conflict and cooperation between social classes and other social groups within and between societies. Possible themes for papers and/or panels could include the influence of other social science traditions on institutional economics, the application of interdisciplinary work in pragmatic policy analysis, the connection or overlap between diverse elements within heterodox economic theory, and the relevance of cultural norms and cross cultural conflict in the study of economic systems.

In addition to the above topics, AFIT welcomes papers reflecting the tradition and analytical perspective of institutional economics and applications of institutional analysis to current policy issues. Submissions from economists of other heterodox schools of thought are also welcome.

AFIT encourages proposals from graduate students, and it is anticipated that at least one and possibly more panels of graduate student papers will be included in the program this year. This year AFIT will sponsor its third annual student scholar competition with a cash prize for outstanding student papers. Faculty are encouraged to nominate students and assist them in submitting their papers. Details will be provided in an additional announcement.

AFIT hopes to continue the tradition of having one or more roundtables on ideas, experiences, and materials helpful for incorporating institutionalism and heterodox economics into our teaching. Geoff Schneider of Bucknell University will coordinate these sessions; please email Geoff at as well as Vice President Chris Niggle if you are interested in participating in the teaching roundtables. Participants in these roundtables are encouraged to submit their materials for posting on the AFIT web site.

Anyone interested in attending the AFIT Conference or in finding out more about the organization may visit the AFIT web site at  The WSSA web site can be found at

Forum for Social Economics


Guest Editor: Geoffrey E. Schneider, Bucknell University
Guest Associate Editors: Daniel A. Underwood, Peninsula College; Janet T. Knoedler, Bucknell University

The Forum for Social Economics is seeking papers of various types related to Teaching Social Economics. Papers can be short (1000-2000 word) descriptions of classroom exercises or the application of particular pedagogies (e.g., service learning, active learning, web based interactive exercises) to teach social economics. Submissions can also be longer in depth articles (up to 7500 words) which explore a particular pedagogical issue, assess student learning outcomes, or teaching issues related to social economics. Articles should clearly stress a heterodox economic tradition (e.g., social economics, institutional economics, post-Keynesian economics, Marxian economics, Feminist economics, etc.) with an emphasis on how that tradition can advance economic education.

Manuscript submissions should be sent in electronic form as an e-mail attachment in Microsoft Word format to Geoff Schneider ( The deadline for manuscript submission is May 1, 2008. Articles must be in final form by September 1, 2008.

Papers will pass a double-blind referee process supervised and subject to the final approval of John Marangos, Editor of the Forum for Social Economics.

The Forum for Social Economics is an international journal, along with the Review of Social Economy, sponsored by the Association for Social Economics. For 35 years the Forum has published high quality peer-reviewed papers. The Forum is a pluralistic journal publishing work that addresses economic issues within wider ethical, cultural or natural environmental contexts, and is sympathetic to papers that transcend established disciplinary boundaries.

The journal welcomes stimulating original articles that are clearly written and draw upon contemporary policy-related research. Preference is given to non-technical articles of topical and historical interest that will appeal to a wide range of readers. For this special issue, the journal is particularly interested in serving as an avenue for issues regarding teaching economics, in particular teaching approaches to social and heterodox economics.

Instructions: Authors should place name, address, phone, fax, and e-mail address on a separate cover sheet and remove identifying information from the title page and body of the manuscript. They should also include an abstract of no more than 150 words and a brief biographical statement of no more than 125 words about each author should be supplied. In addition a list of up to 5 key words, suitable for indexing and abstracting services, should follow the abstract. Authors should not submit articles that have been previously published or that are under review for publication elsewhere. Manuscripts should not exceed 7,500 words in length, including notes and references. Include the article and all tables and figures in the same electronic file. American rather than British spellings should be used.

The Irish Society of New Economists

The Irish Society of New Economists will host its fourth annual conference at the UCD Geary Institute on the 7th September 2007. The conference is intended to provide a forum for new economists (in post-graduate research programs or private/public sectors) to present papers from any area of economics.

A call for papers has been made, with a closing date set at July 27th.

Association for Heterodox Economics Conference 13-15 July, 2007

Introduction       Call for Papers        Registration       Conference Program
Pluralism in Action
The Association for Heterodox Economics is a learned society which promotes economics and economists from so-called heterodox schools of thought. The conference provides a forum for economists of a pluralist view to explore areas of interest to them in a sympathetic environment.
Past conferences of the Association have focused on particular themes and more recently the dominant concern has been with promoting pluralism. This year's conference appealed for contributions which display pluralism in action. By that is meant a number of different possibilities. Papers may be pluralist in themselves; or sessions may be, promoting debate between or within theoretical perspectives on specific areas of interest.
The conference will comprise sessions which present papers that demonstrate the conference theme plus two small streams on other specialist topics. All sessions are 90 minutes long and most comprise two papers. This design means that in contrast to many conferences, speakers get extended time to present their work.
Confirmed speakers:
Professor Sam Cameron, University of Bradford
Professor Barbara Harris-White, Professor of Development Studies, Oxford University
Professor Chris Niggle, University of Redlands, California
Professor Eric Reinert, Tallinn University of Technology, Estonia and Norwegian Institute for Strategic Studies
Dr. Pritam Singh, Oxford Brookes University

Capital accumulation and economic growth in open economies

Stephen Turnovsky, Castor Professor of Economics, University of Washington at Seattle will deliver three lectures on "Capital accumulation and economic growth in open economies" in Lucca (Italy), Palazzo Bernardini
Admission is free but registration is needed. For detailed information: Stephen Turnovsky.doc

L'ADEK Conférences

L'ADEK vous signale les conférences suivantes :

(1) Eric Berr de l'ADEK organise 2 conférences exceptionnelles d'Ignacy Sachs les 14 et 15 juin prochain.

Le professeur Ignacy Sachs interviendra deux fois:

jeudi 14 juin (14h30-16h30): Penser le développement au 21ème siècle vendredi 15 juin (10h-12h): Kalecki et le développement

Ignacy Sachs est né en 1927 à Varsovie. Il quitte avec sa famille son pays natal lorsque les lois anti-juives nazies y sont appliquées et se retrouve au Brésil, où il séjourne quatorze années. Jeune marié – à une polonaise qui deviendra professeur de littérature nord- américaine à l’université de Paris VIII – il s’installe en Pologne et fait carrière comme économiste, spécialiste de la planification.
Proche de Kalecki, il le suit en Inde, de 1957 à 1960. Victime d’un odieux complot le présentant comme « sioniste », en 1968, il est contraint à l’exil et se rend en France, où l’Ecole des Hautes Etudes en Sciences Sociales l’accueille, plus particulièrement Jacques Le Goff et Fenand Braudel. Membre de nombreuses instances d’organisations internationales, Ignacy Sachs propose une autre idée du développement, dont, en 1972, celle d’écodéveloppement. Cette approche environnementale du développement rompt avec l’économicisme et propose une économie anthropologique qui s’inscrit dans la voie ouverte par Karl Polanyi. Il est l’auteur ou le directeur d’une quarantaine d’ouvrages traduits en plusieurs langues. Lui-même parle et écrit indifféremment en quatre langues (polonais, anglais, brésilien et français). Parmi cette importante production intellectuelle, citons : La Découverte du tiers monde (Flammarion,
1971) ; Stratégies de l’écodéveloppement (Edittions ouvrières,
1980) ; L’Ecodéveloppement : stratégies de transition vers le XXI siècle (Syros, 1993) ; Quelles villes pour quel développement ? (Puf,

The Journal of Philosophical Economics (JPE)
An academic, peer-reviewed, online and paper journal
in the field of economics and the philosophy of science
This Journal is devoted to ideas that question the methodological premises of economics as science. Scholars from all fields of scientific concern about inquiry of economical phenomena, but especially from disciplines such as political economy, sociology, political science, statistics and mathematics, philosophy of science, and history, are invited to submit their contributions.

The Editorial Board takes a liberal stance in leaving a fair chance for contributors to provide the readers with a systematic, honest, and thoroughly researched account of an idea deemed fundamental for the advancement of the method of economic inquiry.

The Editorial Board refrains from suggesting possible topics or advising contributors on a certain conduct of their investigation. It lies at the core of this endeavour to have this Journal's audience challenged from innumerable sparkles of minds provided that they remain faithful to genuine scientific effort. Multum in parvo is more than anything else sought after in due respect for the irremediable passage of time.

The Journal is divided into three parts: "Articles", "Reviews" and "Comments", which equally concur in developing a process of cumulative knowledge. Understanding causation relative to evolutions of the humankind's economic progress is meant to represent the philosophical foundation of economics.
The Journal of Philosophical Economics is currently considering articles for its Spring 2008 issue.

Labor Studies Journal

June 2007 issue now available online!
The Labor Studies Journal is the official journal of the United Association for Labor Education (UALE). It is a multi-disciplinary journal covering issues related to work, workers, labor organizations, and labor studies and worker education in the US and internationally, including union organizing strategies; labor movement revitalization; new forms of worker representation (labor centers, etc.); race, gender and "identity" issues and labor; immigration and labor; globalization and labor; labor and political trends; international labor movements; labor education practices and approaches; and labor and the evolving economy.

O Comunneiro

Issue no 4 of web-magazine 'O Comunneiro' is now online: .
'O Comuneiro' is published twice a year, in the portuguese language. It participates in the worldwide movement of renewal of classical marxism and aims to be a laboratory of ideas for the anti-capitalist cause.


Issue 2/2006 – the fourth volume – of our German-English journal „INTERVENTION. Journal of Economics“ has just been published.
INTERVENTION sees itself as a forum for heterodox approaches in economic theory and policy. The aims are mutual exchange and the discussion of different perspectives from different economic schools off the economic mainstream. The journal comes out on a half-yearly basis in mid-April and mid-November, respectively.
The “Articles” section of the current issue features peer-reviewed contributions by Phillip Anthony O’Hara, Heinz-Peter Spahn, Ute Klammer, and Wolfgang Strengmann-Kuhn.
For the “Forum” section we asked our scientific board and authors of previous volumes how they assess the influence of heterodox thinking on economic theory construction and economic policy advice. Additionally, the “Forum” includes contributions on family policy as well as on taxation in Germany, on the relevance of the state as employer in Scandinavia, on economic policy trends in Latin America, on female pioneers of economics in Austria, and, finally, on financial speculation, unemployment and public debt.
The next two issues of INTERVENTION will each be dedicated to a thematic focus. Issue 2/2007 will focus on „How to Cope with Divergences in an Enlarging EU?“, issue 1/2008 – with the title „Inequality on the Rise?“ – will focus on theoretical, empirical and policy aspects of distribution.
The article by Gerd Groezinger “Hochsteuerland Deutschland?“ (high tax country Germany?) may be downloaded for free at There you can also find further information on the journal as well as subscription information.
We would be very grateful if you would consider supporting INTERVENTION by starting a subscription – in case you are not already a subscriber. We also would like to invite you to submit papers for the peer-reviewed part of the journal. Please tell friends and colleagues about our journal, and suggest a subscription to a librarian at your institution.
With kind regards,

Rethinking Marxism

The aim of RETHINKING MARXISM is to stimulate interest in and debate over the explanatory power and political consequences of Marxian economic, cultural, and social analysis. To that end, we publish studies that seek to discuss, elaborate, and/or extend Marxian theory. Our concerns include theoretical and philosophical matters as well as more concrete empirical analyses—all work that leads to the further
development of distinctively Marxian discourses. We encourage contributions from people in many disciplines and from a wide range of perspectives. We are also interested in expanding the diversity of styles for producing and presenting Marxian critiques.

Heterodox Books, Book Series, and Book Reviews


Routledge is making its ICAPE Conference 20% discount available for another couple of weeks—see the two links: one of which is the order form and the other is the list of titles available at the ICAPE Conference which are available with the special discount.

Routledge has recently introduced a new programme called Paperbacks Direct which features new and cheaper paperback editions of books previously available only in hardback, such as Phil O’Hara’s “Global Political Economy and the Wealth of Nations”. [Further information on this programme can be found here:

Earlier this year Routledge brought out "Contributions to Social Ontology", edited by Clive Lawson, John Latsis, and Nuno Martins (including chapters by Margaret Archer, Roy Bhaskar and numerous others), based on papers delivered at an IACR conference held in Cambridge a couple of years ago. Unfortunately the book appeared earlier this year only in hardback. The good news is that it has just been released in paperback. A flyer is attached that allows cheap copies to be bought straight from Routledge . You can also down load the flyer from:

Introducing Economics: A Critical Guide for Teaching

The Global Development and Environment Institute at Tufts University is pleased to announce the June 30, 2007 publication of:
Introducing Economics: A Critical Guide for Teaching
by Mark H. Maier and Julie A. Nelson
(M.E. Sharpe,
$24.00 Paper, $68.95 Cloth)

“Introducing Economics is a pedagogical gadfly prodding our economics thinking by its critical stance while serving as the teacher's best friend through its clear writing, smart teaching ideas, and robust suggested resources. It should be on the shelf of all social studies teachers and teacher educators.”
— Bob Bain, University of Michigan

This guide for teachers is designed to help instructors counter the narrowness (and, often, right-wing bias) of many high school economics curriculum materials. Following the outline of a typical high school textbook, it gives a broader view of arguments on topics including consumption, labor, corporations, the environment, and globalization. In addition, the volume includes a history of the development of high school economics, a description of the competing schools of economics, critical commentary on each of the Voluntary National Content Standards for economics, and an annotated guide to the major organizations involved in high school economics teaching.

“Extraordinarily clear and thoughtful, this guide to economic ideas is certain to become a landmark resource, useful for anyone wishing to cultivate a critical understanding of economics today.”
Myra H. Strober, Professor, School of Education and Graduate School of Business, Stanford University

“Where was this book when I started to teach economics?  Giving insight and perspective on economic principles and how they are taught, this text is a keeper—a  wonderful resource for the new or veteran high school teacher.”
Elizabeth A. Porter, Teacher, Westminster High School, Curriculum Coordinator for Social Studies, Westford Public Schools

Order from M.E. Sharpe

Cloth ISBN: 978-0-7656-1675-3
Paper ISBN: 978-0-7656-1676-0

Additional resources related to teaching economics at the high school level can be found at the authors' website, Introducing Economics.  For educational materials for the university-level teaching, see GDAE Educational Materials.

BISA International Political Economy Group (IPEG)

IPEG, short for International Political Economy Group, was formed in 1971 on the initiative of Susan Strange, then with the Royal Institute of International Affairs at Chatham House. It received a limited amount of funding from the Economic and Social Research Council of the UK in 1974, and became affiliated with the British International Studies Association (BISA) after that organisation was founded in 1974. IPEG has functioned continuously since 1971 except for a brief interval in the late 1980s , and counts among its past Convenors the likes of Susan Strange, Fred Hirsch, Roger Tooze, Geoffrey Underhill, Randall Germain, Rorden Wilkinson, and Nicola Phillips. Paul Langley has been Convenor since June 2005.

The Minnesota Population Center

The Minnesota Population Center is pleased to announce the latest expansion of the IPUMS-International data series. In early June 2007 we added 17 new samples for Argentina, Hungary, Israel, the Palestinian Territories, Portugal, and Rwanda. The data series now contains 202 million person records from 80 censuses in 26 countries.

In addition to adding more samples, we have constructed location-of-spouse data for all samples in the data series. The spouse locator identifies the record number within the household of each person's spouse.

You can read more about the expanded data series at  As always, if you discover problems with the system or have suggestions for improving it, we welcome your feedback.

We are also eager to hear about the results of research using these data. Please email us citations to any books, journal articles, conference presentations, or working papers you have authored. You can also enter the bibliographic information yourself at

Data Set for Global Citizenship

Charles Léopold Mayer Foundation for the Progress of Humankind has created an international data set of experiences that you may find of interest.

In order to meet the challenges of the XXIst century, new forms of citizen’s participation are developing. What is at stake is also the ability to consider the complexity of global problems using innovative approaches and methods of exchange, enhancement, analysis and vulgarisation of information in order to reinforce citizens’ initiatives that contribute to building global democracy. In today’s world of Internet communication, the challenge of democracy is less that of gaining access to information than that of sorting through the vast quantities of available data to select that which is reliable and relevant, and how to structure it in an intelligent manner, which is the central question.

It is with this in mind that the Charles Léopold Mayer Foundation for the Progress of Humankind and Ritimo have created an international data base of experiences dph, which is now up and running in four languages.

We are happy to indicate the on-line address : 
In dph you can find:
- an enriched data base of over 7000 experience sheets, analysis, write-ups
- thematic files linked to partner resource sites
- a directory of some 400 authors and structures who have contributed to dph
- a section of tools and methods that describe the philosophy of exchange of experience and tools to structure and enhance information on a resource site
- a call for contributions that this year concerns two files
* Governance of water: the urgent need to change attitudes and practice
* Achieving sustainability via industrial sectors: from production to consumers
The aim of dph is to create collective intelligence in order to build international citizenship, and we hope you will contribute by sending us your experience sheets or files

dph sheets are communicated using the means defined in our editorial Charter which is available on line and may be reproduced, on condition that the source and dph logo are used.

We hope that you will find this tool of use, and that it will inspire you to participate in the political project of organising a global democratic citizen’s scene, by exchanging experience, structuring information and jointly developing knowledge and citizen’s alliances and developing alternative proposals to build a XXIst century of solidarity and responsibility.

We look forward to hearing from you, and send you all our best wishes

Pour relever les défis du XXIème siècle, de nouvelles formes de participation citoyenne se mettent en action. L’enjeu repose également sur la capacité à aborder la complexité des problèmes planétaires avec des approches innovantes et des méthodes d’échange, de valorisation, d’analyse et de vulgarisation de l’information pour renforcer les initiatives citoyennes qui participent de la construction d’une démocratie mondiale. Aujourd'hui à l'heure du Web, le défi de la démocratie est moins d’accéder à l’information que de trier au sein d’une masse gigantesque d’informations celle qui est fiable et pertinente, la question de la structuration intelligente de l'information demeure une question centrale.

C'est dans cet esprit que la Fondation Charles Léopold Mayer pour le progrès de l'homme et Ritimo ont créé une base de données internationale d'expériences dph qui se concrétise aujourd'hui dans un site ressources en 4 langues.

Nous sommes heureux de vous annoncer sa mise en ligne à l'adresse suivante : 
Vous y découvrirez :
- Une base de données de plus de 7000 fiches d'expériences, d'analyses, de lectures
- Des dossiers thématiques en lien avec des sites ressources partenaires
- Un annuaire des quelques 400 auteurs et organismes qui ont contribué à dph
- Une rubrique « Outils et méthodes » qui décrit la philosophie de l'échange d'expériences et les outils pour structurer et valoriser l'information sur un site ressources.
- Un appel à contributions qui concerne cette année deux dossiers :
* Gouvernance de l'eau : l'urgence de changer de regard et de pratiques
* Atteindre la durabilité par les filières : de la production à la consommation
L’ambition de dph étant de créer une intelligence collective pour construire une citoyenneté internationale, vous pouvez y contribuer en nous envoyant des fiches d'expériences ou des dossiers.

Les fiches dph sont diffusées selon les modalités définies par la Charte éditoriale qui est disponible en ligne, et sont reproductibles, avec mention impérative des sources et du logo dph.

Nous espérons que cet outil vous sera directement utile et qu’il vous donnera envie de participer au projet politique d’organiser une scène démocratique citoyenne mondiale, en échangeant des expériences, en structurant son information, en élaborant en commun des savoirs, en mettant en place des alliances citoyennes et en élaborant des propositions alternatives pour construire un XXIème siècle solidaire et responsable.

Dans l’attente de vos nouvelles, recevez, Madame, Monsieur, nos cordiales salutations.

Equipe Ritimo/dph 

Para estabelecer os desafios do século 21, novas formas de participação cidadã se organizam. A questão está baseada na capacidade de abordar a complexidade dos problemas planetários com abordagens inovantes e métodos de intercâmbio, de valorização, de análise e de vulgarização da informação para reforçar as iniciativas cidadãs que participam à construção de uma democrácia mundial. Atualmente, no momento da internet, a questão da estruturação inteligente da informação é central. O desafio da democracia está concentrado mais na seleção da informação do que no acesso a esta - no meio de uma quantidade gigantesca de dados - o desafio é encontrar a informação que é confiável e pertinente.

E’ com este espírito que a Fundação Charles Léopold Mayer para o progresso do homem e a associação Ritimo criaram uma base de dados internacional de experiências dph, que se concretiza hoje em um site-fonte em 4 línguas (francês, inglês, espanhol e português), o qual temos o prazer de apresentar e informar que ele já está em linha : 
Você poderá descobrir :
- Uma base de dados de mais de 7 mil fichas de experiência, de leitura e de análises
- Dossiês temáticos com links para os sites-fontes parceiros
- Um anuário de mais de 400 autores e organismos que contribuiram com dph
- Uma rúbrica « Ferramentas e métodos » que descreve a filosofia de intercâmbio de experiências e de ferramentas para estruturar e valorizar a informação nos sites-fontes
- Uma chamada para contribuição, que este ano se refere a dois dossiês :
* Monitoramento da água: a urgência de mudar o olhar e as práticas
* Atingir a sustentabilidade pelas filiais: da produção ao consumo
Como a ambição de dph é criar uma inteligência coletiva para construir uma cidadania internacional, você pode contribuir com este projeto nos enviando fichas de experiências ou dossiês. As fichas dph podem ser divulgadas segundo as modalidades já definidas pela Carta editorial, que está disponível em linha e podem ser reproduzidas mencionando a fonte e a logomarca dph.
Esperamos que esta ferramenta seja útil e que você tenha vontade de participar deste projeto político, que tem como objetivo organizar o cenário democrático cidadão mundial através do intercâmbio de experiências, estruturando a informação, criando alianças cidadãs e elaborando em comum saberes e propostas alternativas para construir um século 21 solidário e responsável.
Esperamos poder contar com suas propostas, cordialmente
