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. It will consist of overview lectures, a panel discussion, student study groups and academic papers and it will feature leading international researchers in the area, like Philip Arestis (UK), Robert Blecker (USA), Eckhard Hein (Germany), Marc Lavoie (Canada), and Engelbert Stockhammer (Austria). 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 the current financial market crisis, unemployment, monetary policy and macroeconomic policy coordination in the EU.
