At the EAEPE 2005 Conference there will
be a one-day job market on Friday 11 November. A large room has been
reserved for interviews. Contact Wolfram Elsner at [firstname.lastname@example.org]
for more information. If you are planning to interview for positions
at the Conference, please send me the job advert in whatever
language is appropriate and I will distribute it via the Newsletter.
In my last newsletter I invited statements about where heterodox
economists get jobs and what they are like. I have received a few
replies such as the following two:
I know quite a few heteros in U.S. federal and state government. It
is of course not entirely stable since it depends somewhat on which
party is in charge, but for the most part there is little change at
the level at which most economists operate. In government, it
doesn't seem to matter all that much whether you are hetero or not
because you just need to have the analytical skills and to be able
to do public policy analysis. Heteros seem to do very well in
government because most of them can form complete sentences and
aren't mathematical autistics-- but they do need to have the
I also know of several heteros employed in non-profit enterprises
(advocacy groups or funding organizations). In many environmental,
labor and health organizations they need people to do and contract
for analysis and to interpret studies for executives.
I myself worked for a labor research organization for 5 years , then
in State government for 6 years and have recently gotten a tenure
track job with St. Martin's University in Washington State.
Just an impression and probably totally biased, but there actually
does seem to be some limited interest among some business schools
for those versed in institutional industrial organization/ business
theory. I think this might (?) be because some of the
Wisconsin-schooled are retiring. Just a total guess on my part.
I consider myself an heterodox economist in Argentina. As economists
of this country, we have got a lot of experience in political
economy as a result of the various plans that were taken up in the
last two decades, all of them trying to solve different situations:
hyperinflation, deflation, unemployment, balance of payment crisis,
etc. Regarding to your question about heterodox economists´ jobs,
since my graduation I have been working in public jobs, first only
as professor in the public University and later also at the Ministry
of Economy and in the Secretariat of Tourism. Currently I am working
at the Ministry of Economy of Argentina in public investment,
specifically in project evaluation.
If I get some more comments like the above, I will put them together
into a ‘report’ and post it in an upcoming Newsletter.

Decent Work, Livelihood Strategies, and the Environment
The concept of decent work can be usefully applied to the fuzzy
frontiers between sectors, occupations, social networks, and locations,
and then tied to the realities of people’s lives and the spaces they
live and work in. Countervailing laws and conditions (such as labour,
commodity, and environmental regulations, available technologies, and
resource scarcity) affect how livelihood strategies are carried out. In
turn, the strategies often have environmental impacts. The session
considers how work strategies for men and women are played out in a
range of arenas (formal-informal, rural-urban), sectors (agriculture,
business and trade, wage labour), and environments
The primary and specific focus of this session will be rural and urban
livelihoods in the informal and formal sectors in the 21st millennium.
How can we envisage 'decent' work in the workplace and outside
How has liberalisation affected the 'on the ground' conditions of work
and prospects for decent work?
How might conditions of 'decent work' differ for men and women in
particular societies, and/or for different class and racialised

The annual meeting of AFIT will be held April 19-22, 2006 at Wyndham
Hotel Phoenix, Arizona in conjunction with the Western Social Science
Association (WSSA) 48th Annual Conference
Theme for the 2006 Conference:
What’s Right with Institutional Economics; What’s Wrong with
Institutional economists have long promoted a far-ranging program,
addressing theoretical, methodological, and policy issues. As with any
enterprise, it is necessary from time to time to take stock of the body
of knowledge that has accumulated over the decades, and to make an
estimate as to what has been accomplished and what is required if
further progress is to be achieved. Is there consensus on the main
theoretical corpus of institutional economics? What should be the
institutionalist stance on major policy issues? Is a single, unified
approach to issues possible? Is this desirable? It is hoped that this
conference brings out differences on these and other matters,
encouraging good debate and attempts at resolution.

The US Society's Biennial meetings provide a national forum to focus on
the latest issues and share the latest developments in Ecological
Economics. Our conference shall bring together experts, government
officials, environmental and business leaders to address pressing issues
that beset their programs and provide solutions through a
trans-disciplinary approach. The conference will be held July 20-23 at
the Tacoma Convention Center in Washington State.

The United States Society for Ecological Economics was officially
founded in the spring of 2000 and currently has about 300 members
nationwide. These members represent academia, government agencies,
businesses, non-profit organizations, grass-roots organizations, elected
government officials and concerned individuals. Our mission is to
provide a national organization that will allow this diverse membership
to easily communicate with and learn from each other on a regular basis.
We believe this will better enable members of the USSEE to develop
solutions to our most pressing economic, social and environmental
problems. The USSEE seeks to create a holistic and strong community of
ecological economists in the United States, and is affiliated with the
International Society for Ecological Economics (ISEE).
Ecological economics is a transdisciplinary field of inquiry that
facilitates understanding between economists, ecologists and many others
interested in real solutions to environmental problems and the
integration of new ideas to create a sustainable world. It includes a
preanalytic vision of the economy as a part of the relevant whole, i.e.
planet Earth, which is a thermodynamically closed and non-materially
growing system.. Consequently the field addresses the optimal scale of
the economy, efficiency in the allocation of resources (goods &
services), and the equitable distribution of this resource flow among
alternative people, and between humans & other species.

Association for Heterodox
Seventh Annual Conference, 15-17 July 2005, City University London
The Seventh Annual conference of the Association for Heterodox Economics
was held on 15 – 17 July in City University London’s new Social Science
Building. The theme of the conference was ‘Pluralism in Economics’. Over
100 people took part and 74 papers were presented, 33 from the UK, and
the rest from 18 other countries. Economists from various strands of
Neoclassical, Post Keynesian, Marxian, Austrian, Institutionalist,
Feminist, and Behavioural economics took part. Academic economists and
graduate students were joined by practitioners and journalists in
economics, and by participants from other disciplines, notably several
Participants expressed considerable satisfaction and enjoyment at the
design, structure, and organisation of the conference, and many
commented on the conference’s spirit of openness and friendship. The
conference was pluralist in name and in deed. This was symbolised by a
special presentation of ‘economics art’ by senior Department of Health
policy adviser, Stephen Dunn. In his series of paintings entitled
Market: Works, Stephen explored links between themes in the history of
economic thought and the history of art by means of images of the
Marshallian supply and demand diagram. The exhibition of paintings will
remain on display in the Social Science Atrium for a further month.
A major stream of sessions was devoted to the conference theme of
‘pluralism in economics’. Several highlights are worth mentioning. Alan
Freeman and Andrew Kliman argued that heterodoxy is not necessarily
synonymous with pluralism, and that rules of engagement are necessary.
Other papers explored the boundaries of pluralism: Andy Denis, for
example, argued that Austrian and Marxian economists share a dialectical
approach. Several papers argued that various areas of economic theory
and practice displayed some degree of pluralism: development economics,
central banking, Sen’s capability approach, critical realism, teaching
economics, public ownership and policy, and value theory were all
examined pluralistically. Papers in several sessions explored work at
the borders of economics and literary studies, and economics and
Two excellent plenary sessions explored the nature of dialogue within
economics, particularly between heterodox economics and the orthodoxy.
Geoff Harcourt and Roger Backhouse, in a panel discussion of Edward
Fullbrook’s new edited volume, A Guide to What’s Wrong with Economics,
agreed that the book correctly diagnosed many of the problems of
economics. Backhouse, however, was concerned that the tone of the
critique was an obstacle to engagement with thoughtful neoclassical
economists. In a second plenary session, on “Franco Modigliani and the
Keynesian Legacy”, Gary Mongiovi, editor of the Review of Political
Economy, reopened the debate on the ‘meaning of Keynes’, IS-LM, and the
emergence of Post Keynesianism. He suggested that until the 1970s there
was considerable consensus between neoclassical Keynesians and those
later identified as Post Keynesians. His discussant, Victoria Chick,
instead stressed what she considered fundamental differences between the
neoclassical interpretation and Keynes’s own position.
A well-attended and enthusiastic Annual General Meeting of the AHE, held
on the second day of the conference, agreed unanimously to confer
Honorary Life Membership of the Association on Professor Frederic Lee,
of the University of Missouri-Kansas City, for his outstanding
contribution over many years to the cause of heterodox economics. The
meeting also agreed to hold the Eighth Annual Conference at the LSE,
where the Centre for Philosophy of Natural and Social Science had
offered to host it, in July 2006.

Review of Social Economy
Call for Papers for a Special Issue with the Theme:
“Living Standards and Social Well-Being”
Guest Editors: John Marangos and Deborah M. Figart
The Review of Social Economy would devote a special issue with the theme
“Living Standards and Social Well-Being,” with papers that will
explicitly deal with these issues from a social economics perspective.
The special issue would consist of a collection of papers primarily
recruited from the ASE sessions at the 2006 ASSA Annual Meeting in
Boston, Massachusetts, USA. Unsolicited papers would also be considered.
The special issue would examine how economies across the globe come to
understand what constitutes a living and how we can improve living
standards and social well-being, including balancing paid work with
family life and civic responsibility. The focus may be, but is not
restricted to: an evaluation of the work of John A. Ryan and other
social economists who address living standards; improved quantitative
and qualitative measures of socioeconomic status and well-being; the
role of public and private sectors in improving living standards; and
policy proposals to reduce work time, improve earnings, reduce
inequality and discrimination, provide food and health security, enrich
work life, alleviate underunemployment, reconcile work and family, etc.
Papers will pass a double-blind referee process supervised by the Guest
Editors subject to the final approval of the Review of Social Economy
Co-Editors. The special issue would include one Graduate Student
Research Paper. The editors of the special issue would invite graduate
students to submit research papers. Proof of graduate student status
should be provided with the submission. While the students’ papers will
go through the regular review process and be held to the same standards
for acceptance as other submissions, the panel of reviewers will serve a
mentoring role to advise the student to strengthen the paper. The best
student paper will be published.
Completed papers should be submitted by March 1, 2006 as an email

Much of Europe remains plagued by high levels of unemployment. Fighting
Unemployment critically assesses the widely accepted view that the
culprit is excessive labor market regulation and overly generous welfare
state benefits. The chapters include both cross-country statistical
analyses and country case studies and are authored by economists from
seven North American and European countries. They challenge the standard
free market prescription that lower wages for less skilled workers,
weaker labor unions, greater decentralization in bargaining, less
generous unemployment benefits, and much less job security are necessary
for good employment performance. The larger message of this book is that
fundamentally different labor market models are compatible with low
unemployment, ranging from the free market ‘American Model’ to the much
more regulated and coordinated Scandinavian systems.
For detailed information:
There is the opportunity for a graduate student to complete a Ph.D in
the area of stages of capitalism and globalization. Several students
within the economics and management departments at the National
University of Ireland, Galway are currently working within the overall
framework of social structures of accumulation/early regulation
theory/long waves of capitalist development. The question for
investigation is whether neoliberal globalization forms the
basis for a new stage of capitalism.
Generally a master’s degree in economics, management or a cognate field
is required. The ability to self-finance would be helpful though there
may be the possibility of fellowship and teaching assistance support. A
September/October or January start are both possible.

URPE's new Social Security web
Please take a look at URPE's new Social Security web page:
This page features URPE members: their books, articles, government
testimony, descriptions of talks and even some music. It points you in
the direction of URPE-related websites, and it also includes some
writings and websites of people who are not in URPE but have made a
significant contribution to the fight to preserve Social Security.
Here's what we need from you:
If you are willing to give talks on Social Security, please let us know.
Send your name, address, phones, email, and a description of the aspects
of the Social Security situation you are able to speak about. We will
add your name to our growing list. If you are not already a member of
Economy Connection, please consider joining, and include a description
of the other areas of economics in which you specialize.
If you have written books or articles on Social Security, you may find
that your are already listed on our page! If not, please send a link,
pdf, or word file of what you have written.
If you have a favorite website or article produced by someone else,
please pass that along, too.
As you can see from the web page and URPE Newsletter descriptions of
talks, URPE people have been making an impressive contribution to the
effort to keep Social Security around. NYC-area Economy Connection
members have given a number of talks on Social Security this year, and
many URPE people throughout the US have given talks independently, and
written articles. This fall Social Security may be debated in Congress,
and people will be calling Economy Connection with requests for speakers
and background information. And even if nothing much happens this year,
we all know these proposals to privatize or shrink Social Security will
be back another year.
So sign up to speak, and send your articles!!
