Edited by Philip Arestis, University Director of Research, Cambridge Centre for Economic and Public Policy, Department of Land Economy, University of Cambridge and Fellow, Wolfson College, UK and Yiannis Kitromilides, Associate Member, Cambridge Centre for Economic and Public Policy, Department of Land Economy, University of Cambridge, UK
Publication Date: January 1989 ISBN: 978 1 85278 205 4 Extent: 328 pp
This important book presents a thematic selections of essays by leading post Keynesian economists from Europe and North America.

It focuses on a major feature of post Keynesian economics namely the interrelationships between pricing, distribution and growth. It is no accident that these aspects were emphasised in the work of the founding fathers particularly Kalecki and Keynes. Included in the present volume are essays by scholars who have made significant contributions to our understanding of these relationships. Lying behind them is the emphasis on the role of time and uncertainty that initially comes from the works of Keynes, Kalecki and Kaldor.

The book offers a thorough coverage of both pricing and distribution as well as the related issue of growth which has, hitherto, been comparatively neglected. It also provides a critical appraisal of certain aspects of main stream economics.

Critical Acclaim
‘This is a pleasing set of highly readable papers, stimulating both in themselves and for the pointers which they give to further relevant developments under the broad rubric of post Keynesian economics.’
