Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"The Oxford Handbook of Post-Keynesian Economics, edited by Geoff Harcourt and Peter Kriesler—prominent members of the 'post-Keynesian' school—contains everything about the development of this field, up to the present day, that anyone could think to ask. There are contributions from across the spectrum of self-identified post-Keynesians, including many very well-known scholars in addition to younger, up-and-coming writers. A central theme is the correct place of post-Keynesianism within the broader tradition of economic thought, going back to the classics. Keynes thought that with the publication of his General Theory 'the Ricardian foundations of Marxism will be swept away,' but they don't seem to have been so far."—John Smithin, Professor of Economics, Department of Economics and the Schulich School of Business, York University, Toronto

"This Handbook is a timely reminder that there are other approaches in economics to the mainstream. The Post-Keynesian tradition has built upon many of the insights that Keynes developed in response to the Great Depression and which have subsequently been lost to mainstream economics. These insights have always mattered, but never more than now. This is neither a time of 'business as usual' for the economy and nor should it be for the discipline. We need to think outside the mainstream and this volume is a very handy guide as to how that might be done."—Shaun Hargreaves-Heap, Professor of Economics, King's College London

"This new handbook is a valuable addition to the series of collections of otherwise unpublished research papers, often based on conferences, that have been produced in English by the post-Keynesian community since 1981. ELit represents good value for money as a library purchase (approximately one-third of the price per article) and a particularly useful resource for historians of economic thought." — Journal of the History of Economic Thought
