    Edited by three very well known academics in the field and contributed to by John Smithin, Laurence Moss and G. C. Harcourt, this volume reflects the breath of the honouree’s interests and as such it covers a wide range of topics including political economy, labour economics, history of economic thought and macroeconomics.

Rima has made numerous contributions to the fields of labour economics, history of economic thought, and Post Keynesian economic theory and in this volume the editors and contributors recognize them.
