Heterodox Economics Newsletter

Issue 223 December 18, 2017 web pdf Heterodox Economics Directory

This year's final issue of the Heterodox Economics Newsletter comes with a huge set of Calls for Papers dedicated to conferences taking place and special issues to be published in the upcoming year. Be sure to take note closely as some of the suggested deadlines are rather hasty and might surprise if you go through them after your holidays, while, on the other hand, studying them to closely might ruin the latter beforehand. Finding the right balance between ambition and restraint seems to be crucial in this context ;-)

Another thing I always do at the end of the year, is to have a look at the heterodox part of the ASSA program. You can access the program here and filter events by selecting some associations dedicated to heterodox economics or related issues. I already peeked into the program and saw some nice contributions - if available, you can also download the associated working papers. My schedule also tells me that I will send the next Newsletter from the ASSAs; last time I managed to write a short conference report - let's see what I can achieve this time.

Finally, and most importantly, I wanted to spell out a big "thank you" to both, Fadhel Kaboub (Denison University) and Erik Dean (Portland Community College). Fadhel has been doing a wonderful job as the book review editor of the Heterodox Economics Newsletter and has decided to step down after many years of ambitious service. Erik, on the other hand, is the one who dared to step into Fadhel's footsteps and will continue to regularly supply the Newsletter with selected book reviews, starting this issue, with a review on Anwar Shaikh's Opus Magnum, Capitalism: Competition, Conflict, Crises. Many thanks to you both, and keep up the good work!

All the best,

Jakob
