Blurb

A critical and surprisingly novel collection, by an outstanding group of contributors, that explores the nature of, and prospects for, heterodoxy from numerous angles. It is not always the case that an edited collection yields a set of contributions that cohere around the intended theme. This one does. – Tony Lawson, Emeritus Professor of Economics and Philosophy, Faculty of Economics, University of Cambridge (UK)

The unravelling of the predominant neoliberal model provides a timely opportunity to freshly examine the current state of heterodox economic alternatives. With original and sagely crafted papers, this new edited volume of scholarship from senior and junior scholars covers economic history, theory, ideology, methodology, interdisciplinarity, and relevance of and limits to pluralism, and will assuredly energize heterodox economist practitioners, as intended. – Deborah M. Figart, Distinguished Professor Emerita of Economics, Stockton University (USA)

Comment from our editors:

This is an important contribution that defends the importance of heterodox economics. It discusses what constitutes heterodox economics as an intellectual, social, and political project, with a range of contributions from leading heterodox thinkers coming from a diversity of theoretical vantage points. Some of the key identifying aspects of heterodox economics that are identified are its interdisciplinarity, openness, relevance for understanding the real world, pluralism, and social concerns. The purpose of the edited collection is to provide a constructive account of the future of heterodox economics, and it does so in a way that will be intriguing for many readers, including those less familiar with heterodox economics.
