Gender Development and Globalization is the leading primer on global feminist economics and development. Gender is a development issue because social considerations are not easily incorporated into institutions such as policies, regulations, markets and organizations. This process is often referred to as the mainstreaming of gender in development institutions.

"Specialise!" is the advice often given by career advisers, school teachers and the like. David Epstein takes the opposite position: In an ever more specialised, highly complex world, it pays to have good old-fashioned broad common knowledge in as many areas as you take interest in, both in terms of intellectual curiosity and professional success. To have a decent grasp of various aspects of life means to be able to discern the links between them, thus developing a better understanding of how our world works and what drives events as they unfold.

Due to the economic crisis of 2008/2009, households faced drastic decreases in their incomes, the availability of jobs. Additionally, the structure of the labour market changed, while austerity measures and public spending cuts left households with less support and safeguards provided by the state. How have these developments affected the burden of unpaid labour and what influence did this have on gender relations?

Wolfram Elsner stellt in dieser Vorlesung die Charakteristika und grundlegende Konzepte der evolutionären institutionelle Ökonomik dar und kontrastiert dieser immer wieder mit denen der Neoklassik (u.a. im Bezug auf Märkte oder offene Systeme). Hierbei präsentiert er insbesondere die Beiträge Thorstein Veblens. Elsner skizziert evolutionäre Prozesse und stellt die Frage, welche Rolle Institutionen hierbei zukommt. Diese Ausführungen schmückt er mit zahlreichen Anekdoten.

John K. Galbraith tells the economic history of a couple of economies (mostly UK, US and to a lesser extent Germany) from the end of the first world war until the Bretton Woods conference. He also provides a biography of John M. Keynes and outlines some central ideas of Keynes such as the possibility of an underemployment equilibrium. Galbraith complements the historical remarks by the biographical experiences he made in economic management (and in engaging with Keynes) serving as deputy head of the Office for Price administration during the second world war.

Es ist immer noch zweifelhaft, ob Ökonom*innen mit ihrem Instrumentarium die nächste Wirtschaftskrise vorhersagen können. Als erster Grund ist dafür der nicht-systemische Status von Krisen in Mainstream-Theorien zu nennen. Zweifelsohne entwickeln empirisch arbeitende Makroökonomen Warn-Indikatoren für Finanzkrisen (Schularick und Taylor 2012), es gibt auch makroökonomsiche Modelle, die Krisendynamiken aufgreifen (Kumhof et al. 2015) und Debatten im Mainstream der VWL über den richtigen Umgang mit der Mathematik (Romer ABC).

In this essay, the author takes a critical perspective on the pursuit of growth as the solution for providing for environmental sustainability and economic stability in the countries of Central and Eastern Europe. Drawing from the framework of dependency theory and presenting brief insights into European core-periphery relations the author then argues for the implementation of an alternative strategy to development that is built around the concept of self-reliance.

The article is a formal response to the debate between the economists Diane Coyle and Howard Reed, whose articles were published online by Prospect magazine in 2018. Then, it was taken by Rethinking Economics as representative for the vision of the global network which advocates for changing economics curricula. In fact, it clearly solves some issues within the debate around pluralism by explaining its common misunderstandings among academics and its true - often mislead - meaning.

In der Diskussion um ein bedingungsloses Grundeinkommen (bGE) erscheint es als Idee „ohne Ideologie“, das über unterschiedliche politische Lager hinweg befürwortet wird. Das täuscht. Wenn wir nicht anfangen, unter der Vielzahl an Vorschlägen zu unterscheiden und nur über die abstrakte „Idee“ diskutieren, spielen wir neoliberalem Denken in die Hände, das Grundeinkommen für die Erhaltung sozialer Ungerechtigkeit instrumentalisiert. Die jüngste Debatte um ein „solidarisches Grundeinkommen“ zeigt: Der positiv belegte Begriff ist längst gekapert – wo „Grundeinkommen“ drauf steht, kann inzwischen alles mögliche drin sein.

"Bank Underground" is the staff blog of the Bank of England, founded to publish the views and insights of the people working for one of the world's oldest central banks. The blog covers a wide range of macroeconomic topics, mostly linked to the effects of monetary policy, of course, but not all the time. It provides timely, relevant analysis of contemporary challenges in economic policy and is thus often a perfect primer.

Zunehmend wird die ökonomische Standardbildung für ihre Weltfremdheit, Einseitigkeit und Unreflektiertheit kritisiert. Die Autorin fragt nach den möglichen Wirkungen und gesellschaftlichen Bedeutungen dieses kritisierten Zustandes: Vermag er einer blinden Marktgläubigkeit Vorschub zu leisten, die selbst wiederum als wesentlich für die öffentliche Meinungsbildung in den letzten Jahrzehnten anzusehen ist? Welche Kriterien spielen hierfür eine Rolle? Der Artikel geht diesen Fragen nach, indem er in historischer Perspektive wesentliche Zusammenhänge zwischen Strategien der Beeinflussung der „öffentlichen Meinung“ einerseits sowie der Wissenschaft und Lehre andererseits herausarbeitet, wie sie am Neoliberalismus und seinen Protagonisten Walter Lippmann und Friedrich A. Hayek beobachtet werden können. Zudem wird eine Skizze einer grundlegend alternativen Bildungsform, einer Bildung für ökonomische Mündigkeit, entworfen.

This paper investigates how the concept of public purpose is used in Modern Monetary Theory (MMT). As a common denominator among political scientists, the idea of public purpose is that economic actions should aim at benefiting the majority of the society. However, the concept is to be considered as an ideal of a vague nature, which is highly dependent on societal context and, hence, subject to change over time. MMT stresses that government spending plans should be designed to pursue a certain socio-economic mandate and not to meet any particular financial outcome. The concept of public purpose is heavily used in this theoretical body of thought and often referred to in the context of policy proposals as the ideas of universal job guarantee and banking reform proposals show. MMT scholars use the concept as a pragmatic benchmark against which policies can be assessed. With regards to the definition of public propose, MMT scholars agree that it is dependent on the social-cultural context. Nevertheless, MMT scholars view universal access to material means of survival as universally applicable and in that sense as the lowest possible common denominator.

Dieser Beitrag zeigt auf Basis einer Diskurs- und Metaphernanalyse des öffentlichen Diskurses von ÖkonomInnen zur Finanzkrise, dass hier Krankheitsmetaphern eine zentrale Bedeutung zukommen. Die Metapher der Krankheit impliziert die Vorstellung eines gesunden Normalzustandes der Wirtschaft, der als erstrebenswert bzw. wiederherstellenswürdig erscheint. Die Suggestion, dass die Krise von außen verursacht (eine “Infektion”) sei, ist eine spezifische Interpretation der Krise, die grundsätzlichen Zweifel am bestehenden (Finanz-)Kapitalismus kategorisch ausschließt. Krankheitsmetaphern können vielmehr als implizite politische Forderung interpretiert werden, wirksame Korrekturmaßnahmen zu suchen, um diese Störungen oder Infektionen rasch los zu werden bzw. heilen zu können, um dann schnell wieder zum "Normalzustand" funktionierender Marktmechanismen zurückkehren zu können.

Since the 1980s, the financial sector and its role have increased significantly. This development is often referred to as financialization. Authors working in the heterodox tradition have raised the question whether the changing role of finance manifests a new era in the history of capitalism. The present article first provides some general discussion on the term financialization and presents some stylized facts which highlight the rise of finance. Then, it proceeds by briefly reviewing the main arguments in the Marxian framework that proposedly lead to crisis. Next, two schools of thought in the Marxian tradition are reviewed which consider financialization as the latest stage of capitalism. They highlight the contradictions imposed by financialization that disrupt the growth process and also stress the fragilities imposed by the new growth regime. The two approaches introduced here are the Social Structure of Accumulation Theory and Monthly Review School. The subsequent part proceeds with the Post-Keynesian theory, first introducing potential destabilizing factors before discussing financialization and the finance-led growth regime. The last section provides a comparative summary. While the basic narrative in all approaches considered here is quite similar, major differences stem from the relationship between neoliberalism and financialization and, moreover, from the question of whether financialization can be considered cause or effect.

The article compares market fundamentalism and right-wing populism on the basis of its core patterns of thinking and reasoning. Based on an analysis of important texts in both fields we find many similarities of these two concepts in their "inner images". Thus, we develop a scheme of the similar dual social worlds of right-wing-populism and market fundamentalism and offer some recent examples of market fundamentalism and right-wing populism mutually reinforcing each other or serving as a gateway for each other. We then apply our scheme for the analysis of the recent political developments and its ideological roots in the US under Donald Trump.

In this essay the authors argue for a wider concept of care work that includes community building, civic engagement and environmental activism. On the basis of the case of Cargonomia, a grassroot initiative in Budapest, they show that such a wider concept of care work could allow for different narratives that promote sustainable lifestyles with a milder environmental and social impact on the planet and its communities.
