From the Editor

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 [] 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 statistical skills.
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.

XVI ISA World Congress of Sociology 2006RC-40: Sociology of Agriculture and Food

Deadline for submission of abstracts is August 31, 2005.

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 (regulated-unregulated, rural-urban).

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 workplaces?
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 groupings?

Association for Institutional Thought [AFIT]

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 Economics?
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.

2005 USSEE Conference

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.
Click here for more information about the USSEE conference and click here for the Conference Program.

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
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.

Heterodox Conference Papers, Reports and Working Papers

 Association for Heterodox Economics
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 psychologists.

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 psychology.

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 attachment to:

Heterodox Books and Book Series

David R. Howell, ed., Fighting Unemployment: The Limits of Free Market Orthodoxy (with a preface by Richard Freeman)

Keywords: flexibility, unemployment, inequality, wages, earnings, labor markets, labor market regulation, deregulation, labor market institutions, welfare state, free markets

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.

Heterodox Graduate Program and PhD Scholarships

National University of Ireland, Galway

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 page

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!!
