New Heterodox Books/Book Series
Fabio Petri, General Equilibrium, Capital and Macroeconomics. A key to recent controversies in equilibrium theory, Cheltenham, UK and Northampton, MA, USA: Edward Elgar, 2004 (available end August for UK, October for USA)
This book argues that the shift in general equilibrium theory, from its early long-period to the modern very-short-period versions, has had very important consequences which are insufficiently appreciated by large parts of the economic profession. This shift has produced new difficulties, and has undermined central tenets of neoclassical macroeconomic theory (such as the negative dependence of aggregate investment on the interest rate or the existence of a downward-sloping demand curve for labour) which had their basis in the long-period versions where capital was treated and had to be treated as a single factor.
According to the author, what makes it difficult to appreciate these consequences is the current imperfect grasp of the long-period method (an approach common to classical and to the first generations of neoclassical economists, but nowadays often confused with steady-growth analysis). The origins of this problem date back to the 1930s, and to this day still obscure the history and the logic of the neoclassical approach. The book explains the analytical differences between long-period, steady-growth, and short-period general equilibrium analyses, and proves that on this basis considerable clarification can be achieved, not only in many aspects of the history of economic theory, but also in fundamental issues in the theories of value, distribution, capital, investment, employment and money. For example, the reasons for the disagreements in the 'Cambridge controversies' over capital theory become very apparent. The fruitfulness is then shown of a return to the long-period method, coupled with a return to the classical approach to wages combined with Keynes's principle of effective demand purged of its neoclassical residues.

SEARCHING FOR PANEL MEMBERS
I am looking for Heterodox economists to participate in the following panels (open to all views) at the Eastern Economics Association Meetings 4-6 March 2005 in New York City.
-Fisher's theory of interest rate and the notion of real interest rate: Do real values matter?
(Open to both views: those who like the notion of real rate and those who do not. I will personally argue against.)
-Monetary Policy in a Post Keynesian Framework: (I will do something about asset prices and monetary policy, but everything is possible again)
-Money: History, Nature, Role: (I will defend the chartalist approach and will look at its implication in terms of liquidity preference and economic history. Again it is open to the chartalist and non-chartalist economists.)
If you are interested, please e-mail me at: firstname.lastname@example.org.

University of Oslo, P.O Box 1108 Blindern, 0317 Oslo, Norway.
Two new, externally financed researcher positions will be established at
Centre for Technology, Innovation and Culture (TIK).
Women are particularly invited to apply. The overall goal of TIKâ€™s
research strategy is to explore the production of knowledge, the interplay
between science and technology, entrepreneurship and innovation, based on
interdisciplinary linkages between social sciences and the humanities
(sciences of art). TIK has a total staff of around 50 employees including
the permanent scientific positions, professor II, PhD candidates,
postdoctoral research fellows, and administration. TIK has its own program
(PhD and postdoc) for research training within the doctoral programme of
the Faculty of Social Sciences. The Centre is responsible for the
Norwegian part of an international MA programme on science, technology and
society (ESST), and a project oriented BA subject within the field of
organization and leadership. A new programme is being developed. TIKâ€™s
research is organized in four research groups within and across three main
research areas related to production of knowledge: 1) Science and
technology, nature and culture; 2) Economic culture and organization; and
3) Innovation, growth and development in a global economy. The applicants
must have qualifications within one of the three research areas and
experience with research integrating these problems and perspectives. The
candidate must have a Ph.d.-degree or other relevant qualifications.
Scientific production and international publishing over the last few years
and potential for future research will be emphasized. The chosen
researcher must contribute to long term development of the research areas
and research environment at the Centre. She/he must have competence which
can be used in different types of projects and in accordance with TIKâ€™s
priorities. (The TIK centre is to a considerable degree based on external
financing. We are thus looking for persons with considerable engagement in
research and who will enjoy work in a dynamic environment). Those who are
successful in obtaining a position will initiate and lead research
projects. They should therefore have proven experience in acquiring
research funding. The successful candidate will also to some extent take
part in teaching courses and supervising students, PhD and MA. Relevant
experience will therefore be an advantage. Ability to cooperate, to build
and take part in networks and some experience in research administration
will be emphasized. In evaluating the applicants and in accordance with
the usual academic norms, particular emphasis will be put on the submitted
scientific publications. In ranking those applicants who are found
qualified by the commission, emphasis will be put on documented ability to
acquire research funding, dissemination of research, teaching experience
and pedagogical qualifications, general dissemination, and other
qualifications including from other activities.
Applicants must enclose 4 copies of the application letter together with
complete overview on educational background, previous positions held, and
other experience. In addition a complete list of scientific works with
information on publisher and project funding (plan) must be enclosed.
Applicants must indicate which of the scientific works that is to be
considered important for this application. The number of these should not
exceed 10. Documentation on pedagogical qualifications must be enclosed
and summarized. Applicants must enclose 4 complete sets of (published or
unpublished) scientific work that are to be considered.
The application is to be sent to: Centre for Technology, Innovation and
Culture (TIK), University of Oslo, P.O.Box 1108 Blindern, 0317 Oslo,
Norway. Interviews are part of the application process, and applicants
may be demanded to held trial lectures.

Free Trade and the Environment: Mexico, NAFTA, and Beyond
by Kevin P. Gallagher
(Stanford University Press, 2004; $42.50 Cloth; $16.95 paper)
Free Trade and the Environment examines the impact economic integration
has on the environment, focusing on Mexico, which transformed itself
from one of the world's most closed economies to one of the most open.
Mexico's experience offers a cautionary tale for governments and
policy-makers considering the hotly debated relationship between
globalization and the environment.
This volume investigates two commonly held and opposing beliefs in the
policy community about the impact of free trade on the environment.
While some argue that free trade will raise incomes in developing
countries, thus encouraging governments to protect the environment,
others argue that free trade simply provides an incentive for
heavily-polluting firms to move to developing countries with lax
environmental regulations. This volume shows that for Mexico neither
position is correct, and concludes with a set of concrete
recommendations for policies that couple environmental protection with
