This three-day summer school introduces Post Keynesian Economics. Post Keynesian theory is part of a broader Political Economy approach which highlights the social conflict and power relations between classes such as labour, capital and finance and social groups stratified along the lines of gender and ethnicity. Economic analysis should thus be rooted in a historic and institutional setting.
Post Keynesian Economics emphasises the role of fundamental uncertainty about the future, the central role for ‘animal spirits’ in the determination of investment decisions; inflation as the result of unresolved distributional conflicts; money as an endogenous creation of the private banking system; unemployment as determined by effective demand on the goods markets; and financial markets prone to periodic boom-bust cycles.
The summer school is aimed at advanced undergraduate students of economics and social sciences. As the aim of Post Keynesian Economics and Political Economy ultimately is to provide the foundation for progressive economic policies, it may be of interest for a broader audience.
