Workshop

Summer School: Keynesian Macroeconomics and European Economic Policies

Veranstalter: Hans-Böckler-Stiftung, Research Network Macroeconomic Policies

Ort: Berlin, IG Metall-Bildungsstätte Berlin-Pichelssee

vom: 27.07.2008

bis: 03.08.2008

Post-Keynesian economics is a thriving economic approach which highlights issues of effective demand, income distribution, employment and growth in a monetary production economy. Most of the features of a monetary production economy are usually neglected in mainstream economics and its "free market”-orientation. During the recent decades, economic policies based on this mainstream approach have contributed to high unemployment, worsening income distribution and increasing economic imbalances. Developing alternative policy proposals will therefore need a firm theoretical foundation. The summer school aims at providing an introduction to Post-Keynesian economics and to the problems of European economic policies as well as presenting some ongoing research to interested graduate students (MA and PhD) and junior researchers

The summer school will feature leading international researchers in the area, like Marc Lavoie (Canada), Amitava Dutt, James Crotty, David Howell (all USA), and Philip Arestis (UK). Issues of monetary economics, the theory of growth and distribution, and the relation of Post-Keynesian Economics to other heterodox traditions, but also to the now prevalent New Keynesian approach, will be covered as well as applications of Keynesian theory to issues of unemployment, monetary policy and macroeconomic policy coordination in the EU.

The summer school aims at providing an introduction to Post-Keynesian economics and to the problems of European economic policies as well as presenting some ongoing research to interested graduate students and junior researchers (i.e. MA and PhD students).
