From the Editor

This Newsletter has lots of new stuff—new conferences & call for papers being announced, new job postings for heterodox economists from around the world, new journals, and a website in Spanish for heterodox economists.  The 3rd Australian Society of Heterodox Economists Conference has just ended and apparently it went very well.  Information about the abstracts of the papers given at the Conference can be found in the Newsletter; and the actual papers given will be posted soon as well.  However, if you want pictures go to; there you will see all the usual suspects as well as new ones.  Personally it was nice to see Geoff Harcourt, John King, Jerry Courvisanos, Steve Keen, Peter Kriesler, and others all enjoying themselves in summer-like attire-- as it is getting bloody cold here in Kansas City as the depths of winter approaches.  The Fourth Australian SHE Conference will be held 12-13 December 2005 at the University of New South Wales.    A few weeks ago I was at the University Autonomous of Sinaloa in Culiacan, Mexico giving lectures on heterodox microeconomics to students and faculty.  The lectures seem to go well and the students/faculty seemed to find the material interesting—and I certainly enjoyed giving the lectures.  Hopefully further interests in heterodox economics will develop there.  Finally, as the end of semester and holiday season is upon many of us, I wish you a relaxing time in the company of family and friends.  The next Heterodox Newsletter will not emerge on your computer screen until late January 2005.

Tenth 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 and livelihood
• 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
economic activity

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

Deadline for submissions is December 15, 2004.

Abstracts (approximately 200 words) and brief CV’s may be sent by mail to:

Association for Heterodox Economics 7th Annual Conference

Call for Papers 

Pluralism in Economics 

15 – 17 July, 2005

City 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. 

 The 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  

    examine issues or deploy approaches neglected by the current orthodoxy;

  develop the critique of the neoclassical orthodoxy, or even – since we advocate pluralism – proposea defence of neoclassicism against heterodox critics;

    assess the contribution of one or more heterodox approaches towards opening up economics;

  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.

 Deadline for submission:

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 (, AND the AHE coordinator, Andrew Mearman (,by 28 January 2005. Text, HTML, Word and PDF format email attachments are acceptable.  

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 pressures.

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 alternatives;

•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 organiser.

Abstracts of papers relating to these issues are invited for consideration for the conference and should be sent to Andrew Sayer at the address below by January 14th 2005

Conference organiser: Andrew Sayer, Professor of Social Theory and Political Economy, Department of Sociology, Lancaster University, U.K. Conference secretary: Pennie Drinkall:

26-28 May 2005- Deadline for Abstracts Monday 24 January 2005

The Centre for Global Political Economy invites participation in this major international and interdisciplinary conference.   At present invited speakers who have confirmed their participation include Professors  Michel Aglietta (CEPII, Paris), Gerard Dumenil (CEPREMAP-CNRS, Paris), Robert Wade (LSE), and  Donald Mackenzie (Edinburgh University).

 Financial instability 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 amplify them.

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:

  • Financial Crises
  • Regulation and Finance
  • Poverty and Social Risk
  • The New Economy
  • Offshore Finance and Tax Havens
  • Accountancy
  • The Sociology of Finance
  • The Lineage of Global finance
  • Gender and Finance
  • Finance, Culture and Society
  • Ethical Finance
  • The Geography of Finance

 Abstracts should be no longer than 250 words and should be sent direct to Libby Assassi, at the address below or after the 24 November 2004, can be submitted through the CGPE website.

Econ Journal Watch
The new issue of Econ Journal Watch is online at
EJW is a peer-reviewed journal for scholarly commentary. The Advisory Council includes Ronald Coase, Douglass North, James Buchanan, Vernon Smith, Robert Mundell, Thomas Schelling, Gordon Tullock, Israel Kirzner, Sam Peltzman, Deepak Lal, Robert Higgs, Leland Yeager and Timur Kuran, and many other prominent researchers.
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 responds.
• Jih Y. Chang and Rati Ram conclude their exchange with Jeffrey Edwards and Anya McGuirk over economic growth, level of development, and income inequality.
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.
Character Issues:
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 reformation.
Investigating the Apparatus:
Randall Holcombe dissects the National Research Council’s rankings of economics departments, and reflects on the impact on economic research.
Correspondence: Letters on statistical significance by Thomas Schelling and Robert Gelfond. Stephen Ziliak and Deirdre McCloskey reply.

Information about Econ Journal Watch, including a call for papers, is available at We warmly welcome inquiries and submissions from sociologists, political scientists, historians, policy analysts, etc., as well as economists.

Heterodox Micro Website

Professor 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 mechanics.


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 provided:


the portal to Reynold’s entire web site;


and the index of to the pdf electronic texts and other materials



The materials are free and anyone is welcome to use them.  You can contact Professor Reynold at




Heterodox Queries


By Peter Kriesler, University of New South Wales

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 important.

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 sector.
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 for Review

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 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.
