First World Keynes Conference – June 2013

Call for papers: 1st World Keynes Conference
Attacking the Citadel: Making Economics Fit for Purpose
Izmir University of Economics, Izmir/Turkey – 26-29 June 2013

Economics as a science ought to be in disarray. Its vastly dominant mainstream models and policy recommendations based on rational representative agents for example should have suffered a devastating blow in response to the recent world financial crisis and even be seen as part of its cause. Whilst initiatives such as the Institute for New Economic Thinking or the foundation of the outspokenly pluralist World Economic Association demonstrate that there is now more room for dissenting views among economists and in the general public, it is still uncertain whether a more open and fruitful economics will prevail within the discipline. What can be learned from the past, including the experience of the Keynesian revolution, is that a major crisis can indeed challenge outdated theories, although it is salutary to bear in mind that the stagflation of the 1970s ultimately underpinned the emergence of the new classical economics. Its mark remains heavy on the discipline even where its extreme postures are rejected.

.

Against this background, the 1st World Keynes Conference will bring together economists and other social scientists from around the world to discuss alternatives to prevailing conventional wisdom from a variety of heterodox’ approaches and theoretical perspectives, including:

– Post Keynesianism
– Marxism, the Regulation School and the Social Structure of Accumulation Approach
– Institutionalism
– Neoricardianism
– Schumpeterianism and Evolutionary Economics
– Social Economics
– Behavioural Economics
– Feminist Economics

The 1st World Keynes Conference attempts to take up all issues that are of interest to heterodox economists’ ranging over microeconomics, macroeconomics, political economy and policy issues. Particular emphasis will be on:

– Methodological issues
– Issues of the history of economic analysis
– Issues related to economic pluralism
– Issued related to the comparison and complementarity of different paradigms
– Issues related to the Professional and Intellectual Ethics and Practices of economists
– Issues related to Keynes, the Arts and the public role in culture

The stance taken by the organizers of the 1.World Keynes Conference is one of inclusion, not of exclusion.
