  1. Beyond Positivism - June 28, 2015

    Since its publication in 1982, Beyond Positivism has become established as one of the definitive statements on economic methodology. The book’s rejection of positivism and its advocacy of pluralism were to have a profound influence in the flowering of work methodology that has taken place in economics in the decade since its publication. This edition contains a new preface outlining the major developments in the area since the book’s first appearance. 

  2. New Research: The State and Business in the Major Powers

    This book provides, for the first time, an integrated economic history of these state /business relations in the major powers in the period 1815-1939, and offers a completely new perspective on the links between tariff policies, state enterprise in manufacturing, the treatment of the peasantry, regulation of railways, taxation of the business sector, policies on cartels, trusts and competition.

  4. Less than Nothing - How are negative interest rates possible? By James Nolt

    This article is all about how bonds with negative interest rates can exist in our economy.  This is the equivalent of paying someone to take your money.  James Nolt examines the global "savings glut", the Chinese realestate and export market, and more!

    Notl's blog, Polarizing Political Economy, is hosted by WorldPolicy.org.  

  5. The Japan Society of Political Economy - Routledge Book Prize

    The JSPE and Routledge are happy to announce the creation of the JSPE - Routledge Book Prize. The Prize is open to its member and non-member colleagues all over the world. The JSPE wishes to play a more active role in promoting political economy and heterodox economics internationally. The prize encourages members of the JSPE to publish their work in English and to challenge the growing dominance of orthodox neo-liberal economics among economists and policy-makers. It also promotes studies in heterodox economics all over the world. We hope this prize in political economy will become equivalent to other great international economic prizes, such as the Nobel Memorial Prize in Economic Sciences, which are given only to mainstream economists.

  7. New Major Work: Financial Derivatives

    Financial derivatives continue to play a major role in modern, market-based economies across the globe. The necessity to comprehend the economic rationales behind financial derivatives, as well as the purposes for which they were designed, has never been greater. This new four-volume collection from Routledge answers that need. David H. Goldenberg, a leading scholar in the field, has brought together the foundational and the very best cutting-edge contributions. The collection maps the existing body of thinking and helps users to make sense of the continuing explosion in scholarly output.

    Furnished with a comprehensive introduction, newly written by the editors, which places the assembled materials in their historical and intellectual context, International Trade is an essential collection and is certain to be recognized as a vital one-stop resource. 

  9. Degrowth: A Vocabulary for a New Era

    This book is one of the most thorough and insightful presentations and discussion of economic theory and practice in the field of de-growth economics, a revolutionary attempt to understand the economy as if humans and Nature matter.

  10. What Every Economics Student Needs to Know and Doesn’t Get in the Usual Principles Text

    "John Komlos provides an important complement to--and corrective for--the standard Economics 101 textbook. This book clearly explains why free markets are far from perfect and, indeed, do not exist in the vast majority of the modern economy. Instead of fetishizing economic efficiency, Komlos explains why economics should focus on creating a better society and helping all of us live more fulfilling lives."

    James Kwak, University of Connecticut, co-author of 13 Bankers: The Wall Street Takeover and the Next Financial Meltdown
