Overview

Future Directions for Heterodox Economics showcases a range of contributions to contemporary economic theory and policy, bringing together essays that range from mathematical to philosophical, critical to positive, and pro-market to socialist, all while making innovative connectiosn between formerly separate theoretical traditions-Marxian, Austrian, feminist, ecological, Sraffian, institutionalist, and post-Keynesian. This original volume shows the surprising extent to which pluralism is engendering controversy, critical dialogue, and innovative new directions within twenty-first-century heterodox economics.
