The Elgar Companion to Post Keynesian Economics, Second Edition

2nd edition

Edited by J.E. King, Emeritus Professor, La Trobe University, Australia and Honorary Professor, Federation University Australia

This thoroughly revised and updated second edition provides a comprehensive guide to Post Keynesian methodology, theory and policy prescriptions.

‘The effort that has been put for the publication of this book is highly meritorious and it can be considered a complete encyclopedia of the current status of the scientific research in the tradition of Keynes. . . Many of the issues contained in this book provide an interesting re-reading of authors of the past and, in this sense, it is recommendable also for historians of political economy.’
– Guglielmo Forges Davanzati, Oeconomia

‘The Elgar Companion to Post Keynesian Economics is a comprehensive guide to economic analyses in the tradition of Keynes and the so-called Cambridge (UK) school of economics. The coverage of themes and different theoretical orientations within Post Keynesianism is remarkable and the quality of the various entries is impressive. John King’s invisible hand is responsible for a minimum of overlaps and an optimum in quality and comprehensibility. This book has already proved to be of interest to a wide range of economists and can be expected to continue to do so for a long time to come.’
– Heinz D. Kurz, University of Graz, Austria
