Call for Papers
International Karl Polanyi Conference
The theme of the Tenth International Karl
Polanyi Conference convened to meet in Istanbul on October 13-16, 2005
will be “Protecting Society and Nature from the Commodity Fiction”.
In The Great Transformation, Karl Polanyi presents a powerful discussion
of the disastrous implications of the commodification of land, labour
and money for human society. Knowledge has recently joined Polanyi’s
fictitious commodities. The privatisation of this socially created
resource of increasing economic importance is rendering scientific,
cultural and artistic activity subservient to business interests. The
need to protect the human and natural substance of society is today more
pressing than it was through the nineteenth century expansion of the
self-regulating market system explored in The Great Transformation. Life
and livelihood for hundreds of millions of people have become more
insecure and the dimensions of environmental degradation are alarming.
In the context of the contemporary transformations of the world economy,
social policy and related questions of responsibility and agency acquire
a novel significance. Questions pertaining to the realization of social
rights call for a reexamination of the role of the state.
With these observations in mind, we invite papers that address issues
such as the ones grouped under the six sub-themes listed below. We
welcome contributions that explore parallel themes in historical
analysis and history of ideas.
Sub-theme I: Work, Poverty and Social Exclusion
• patterns of employment and unemployment
• working poor and insecurity of livelihood
• varieties of labour market informality
• unions in the contemporary world of labour
• gender dimension of labour problems and poverty
• cross border flows of labour
Sub-theme II: Land and Nature as Fictitious Commodities
• ecological implications of the commodification of nature
• transnational corporations and food security
• the future of the peasantry and social movements in the rural setting
• alternative policy approaches agriculture and natural resources
Sub-theme III: Knowledge as a Fictitious Commodity
• implications of trade-related intellectual property rights for life
• scientific research, artistic activity and business interest
• corporate control of the media
Sub-theme IV: Entitlements for Social Participation
• social security and income support policies
• access to education, health, transportation and other public services
• training of labour, microcredit, and local community development
programs for facilitating engagement in
Sub-theme V: Responsibility, Agency and the Future of Social Policy
• declining state capacity
• demographic changes and socio-economic pressures on the family
• the role of civil society associations in welfare provisioning
• international organizations and global solidarity networks
Sub-Theme VI: Contributions on the work of Karl Polanyi

Heterodox Economics 7th Annual Conference
Call for Papers
Pluralism in Economics
15 – 17
University, London, UK
The raison d'être of the AHE is the belief that
institutions of the discipline of economics systematically discriminate
against those economists working in non-mainstream modes: those writing
from a heterodox standpoint or active in minority areas. For this reason
we argue for pluralism in economics, in opposition to the dead
hand of the currently hegemonic neoclassical mainstream.
Seventh Annual Conference will continue this tradition and build on the
success of the previous conferences, held at various locations in the
British Isles, including London, Dublin, Leeds and Nottingham. Papers
from a plurality of perspectives and topic areas are encouraged. These
conferences provide a forum for advancing new ideas on how to take
heterodox political economy forward in theoretical and policy debates,
and demonstrate the continuing relevance of heterodox political economy
to those within and without modern economics.
In particular, we encourage the submission of abstracts
of papers, or proposals for a session or stream of sessions, which
issues or deploy approaches neglected by the current orthodoxy;
critique of the neoclassical orthodoxy, or even – since we advocate
pluralism – proposea defence of neoclassicism against heterodox
– assess the
contribution of one or more heterodox approaches towards opening up
– open up a
dialogue between economics and related social sciences by going beyond
the traditional, narrow academic boundaries that define social science
disciplines today; or
– make a
contribution to the scholarship of teaching and learning in economics
from a heterodox or pluralist perspective.
The AHE proposes to publish a selection of the best
papers presented at the conference in a special volume of the book
series Advances in Heterodox Economics, edited by Professor
Frederic S. Lee.
The conference will have both a thematic part and an open
part. The AHE is happy to consider papers of both types; however,
priority will be given to papers addressing the conference theme,
“Pluralism in Economics”.
For single papers,
please send an abstract of up to 500 words by email only to the
local organiser, Andy Denis (firstname.lastname@example.org),
AND the AHE coordinator, Andrew Mearman (email@example.com),by
28 January 2005.
Text, HTML, Word and PDF format email attachments are
For proposals for sessions and streams,
please e-mail Andy Denis and Andrew Mearman. Please indicate exactly
what you are proposing, give the names and email addresses of the
proposed speakers, and attach the abstracts (not more than 500 words
each) for their papers. Parallel sessions will be 90 minutes long and
will consist of two papers. Sessions may have a discussant for
each paper. The conference is to be conducted in English.
All abstracts will be considered by the AHE Committee

Perspectives on Moral Economy:
International Conference- Lancaster University, U.K.
25-27th August 2005
All economies are moral economies, in the sense that all economic
relations and practices have moral/ethical preconditions and
implications. ‘Moral economy’ might be defined as a kind of inquiry
focusing on how economic activities of all kinds are influenced and
structured by moral sentiments, values and norms, and how in turn those
are reinforced, compromised, or overridden by political economic
How are economic practices influenced and structured by moral or
moral-political norms? How do economic pressures and political economic
power affect those norms? How defensible are such norms? How do economic
institutions define responsibilities for or towards others? How do
economic practices shape life prospects? The focus will be not only on
achieving a better understanding of such institutions and practices but
on feasible and desirable possibilities for change. Such a study might
range from the philosophical, for example, concerning concepts of value
and flourishing, to the practical, for example the specific rights and
responsibilities associated with particular economic practices.
The conference will be post-disciplinary, bringing together researchers
with interests in these matters from politics, sociology, philosophy,
economics and allied areas.
The aims of the conference are:
•To further understanding of moral economy;
•To broaden and deepen the critical standpoints from which economic
activities can be assessed, thereby helping in the search for
•To bridge the divide between those who work on political economic
studies of practice and policy and theorists and philosophers who work
on the normative bases of economic life.
Plenary Speakers include Erik Olin Wright and Sylvia Walby. The
conference is organised as part of an ESRC fellowship held by the

and the social risks associated with it are rising rapidly to the top of
the agenda. The speed with which financial crises hit the regions of
Asia, Latin America and Russia is disconcerting. Paradoxically, however,
these crises appear to have reinforced two diametrically opposing
opinions: a pessimistic sense of impending doom looming over the entire
world economy, and an optimistic assessment of the remarkable resilience
of global financial markets. Uncertainties and risks, however, appear to
spread beyond the frames of traditional business credit or exogenous
macroeconomic shocks. Today the less understood effects of the
unprecedented expansion in consumer credit and impending pension crises
Taking the theme of crisis and
instability liberally, this conference seeks to reflect on changes in
finance within the broader complex of the interrelations between social,
cultural and economic dynamics with the worlds of finance. In
particular, we invite contributions from and seek to facilitate a
dialogue between academic and non-academic experts on the themes of
Finance, Risk and Society; Crisis and Debt, and Looking Forward to the
Financial System in the 21st Century from a variety of disciplines
concerned with the following issues:
Regulation and Finance
Poverty and Social Risk
The New Economy
Offshore Finance and Tax Havens

In the December 2004 issue:
• Peter Minowitz argues William Grampp mishandled Adam Smith in his
article appearing in the JPE.
• James Forder suggests that Alan Blinder’s survey treating
“credibility” (appearing in the AER) neglects particular ways central
bankers and academic economists might understand that term differently.
• Fabio Rojas examines how George Akerlof and Rachel Kranton, writing in
the JEL, apply identity and politics to school reform.
• Philip Coelho, Daniel Klein, and James McClure explore Wolfgang
Pesendorfer’s model of fashion cycles in the AER. Wolfgang Pesendorfer
• Jih Y. Chang and Rati Ram conclude their exchange with Jeffrey Edwards
and Anya McGuirk over economic growth, level of development, and income
Economics in Practice:
By studying the indices of leading textbooks, Dan Johansson shows that
core Ph.D. theory is devoid of entrepreneurship, institutions, property
rights, and economic freedom. He reflects on a profession that is like
Hamlet without the Danish prince.
Drawing on religious history and rival doctrines, Robert H. Nelson
distinguishes two ways of economic enlightenment: scholasticism and
pietism. He suggests that the scholastic church of academic economics
should give way to more pietistic movements, and shows that leading
figures writing in the EJ’s centennial issue provide support for such a

Randall Holcombe dissects the National Research Council’s rankings of

Heterodox Micro Website
Larry Reynolds of Boise State University has a web site. On
the site he has posted 6 chapters of an alternative view of
microeconomics. Since he is an institutionalist, heterodox
economists who are teaching micro might be able to use these
chapters to provide some social context to neoclassical
Basically he is trying to undermine
the publishers by providing fee e-books and materials. I think
that there are lots of us (hetrodox economists) who are quite
capable of desk top publishing. there are two links that are

PREPARING A GOOD POSTER FOR A
POSTER SESSION AT A ECONOMICS CONFERENCE
By Peter Kriesler, University of New South
A poster consists of text and other graphic material mounted on a piece
of size A1 cardboard (i.e. the size of eight A4 sheets). We will provide
facilities to hang your poster on partitions (drawing pins or similar).
Your poster can outline your research project as a whole, or a
particular question you are grappling with. It is absolutely OK to
present the questions you are working on, you do not need to present
complete answers. Posters are aimed at generating interesting
discussions with other conference participants that are rewarding for
you and your research.
When preparing a poster it is a good idea to first identify the key
concepts, ideas and questions you want the audience to understand, and
what the logical relationships between these concepts, ideas and
questions are. The next step in the preparation of a successful poster
then focuses on how to visualise these relationships.
As a poster is intended to give the viewer an overview over the research
in question, it is important to limit the basic structure of the poster
to the most important issues and to use key words in large letters to
denote them. It is perfectly OK to have these key words written by hand,
preferably with large markers or big crayons. Keep in mind that the
viewers will get a first impression of the logic of your research when
standing a few meters away from your poster. This is when you want to
catch their interest, so colours and graphical presentation are
You can then use some smaller typed text to elaborate on particular
points which you would like to discuss with others or on which you would
like to receive feedback. You can stick such text onto the cardboard
next to the relevant keywords. Make sure that the difference in size
clearly indicates that this is the more detailed information you would
like the viewer to consider once they have an overview and their
attention has been captured.
Peter Alexander EGOM
I do research and publish books on how
money is used and could be used to distribute work and its rewards,
social and material, among the members of any society.
Thus I have learnt to distinguish between that concept of money which
enables an economy to distribute social and material care amply and
evenly among its members and that concept of money which prevents an
economy from distributing social and material care evenly and amply
among its members.
The consequence of this line of thinking is that I have come to realize
that there is an economic theory of index numbers which has practical
life in the ethical space which public sector deficit financing wedges
between the commodity and monetarist concept of equal opportunity money
and the debt and fiscalist concept of unequal opportunity money
.What is more, once we get a hang on how the phenomenon of interest
comes about and is sustained in an economy through public sector deficit
financing, then it becomes quite clear that variants of the commodity
and debt payments standards as well as the purchasing power parity,
interest parity, and import parity pricing, theorems witness variously
to the specific degrees to which the periodic total savings of an
economy is dedicated to financing the borrowing needs of its public
Thus, variants of payments standards and macro-economic pricing theorems
have specific batches and stretches of numerical expression on the true
and general economic index of value and distribution.
This is decidedly not the language of orthodox and scientistic economics
which I have found cannot help us in Africa and elsewhere in the global
South to grow jobs, goods and services in abundance. In fact, Autistic
Economics cannot even grow any of the economies of the global North
today because it does not have a general theory of economic value and
distribution. It is that simple.
I would like to contact with scholars who are not only
interested in bringing economics back to its social and ethical moorings
but also in constructing a general and standard economic performance
gauge for measuring the past and present readiness of any economy of the
globe to produce its members into social and material plenty.

Review of Political Economy- Books
The Review of Political Economy has received
review copies of the following books. If you are interested in reviewing
one or more of them for us, please get in touch with me via e-mail at
email@example.com. We regard book reviews as an important mechanism
for the transmission of information in our discipline. A review should
give a clear idea what the book is about, a sense of its relevance, and
an assessment of its strengths and weaknesses. As in the past, if I
don’t know you, please include a bit of information about yourself and
your qualifications for reviewing the books you selected. I’ll take a
couple of weeks to sort through competing requests and then get back to
you. It’s usually a good idea to indicate alternate selections. Finally,
you may want to visit publishers’ websites to find out more about a book
before requesting it, to be sure whether it’s in your line. I look
forward to hearing from many of you.
Many thanks in advance.
