A sequel t Alfred S. Eichner's seminal 198 volume, A Guide to Post Keynesian Economics, this edited volume provides a comprehensive introduction to the Post Keynesian position on key issues confronting economists and public policy makers.
The New Guide reflects the changes that have occurred in post Keynesian thought as well as developments that have taken place in the world economy since the 1970s. Covering such areas as methodology, uncertainty and expectations, distribution, pricing, tax incidence, macro dynamics, inflation, labour and unemployment, theory of the state and international trade, this book provides an outstanding introduction for undergraduate and graduate students to the post keynesian view on how today's economy works and how to improve economic performance.
* Each chapter is written clearly and will be accessible to both undergraduate and graduate students
* Mathematical equations and technical material are kept to a bare minimum
* Each chapter discusses the post Keynesian view on one particular topic and contrasts that view with the orthodox perspective on that topic
* All chapters conclude with a discussion of the policy implications of Post Keynesian analysis.
