When three great economists meet to discuss the current state and future outlook of heterodox economics, this is what ensues: A fascinating debate about the current state and future outlook of the interaction of multiple schools of economic thought, and what they have to offer in meeting the pressing tasks of our day.
All these three are pall-bearers of some kind of meta-approach to economic thought, i.e. of analysing the modi operandi, the linguistical concepts and sociological framework adopted by researchers in economics.
Deirdre McCloskey is one of the most eminent feminist and philosophical economists in the science. Anwar Shaikh is a prominent scholar of classical political economy in general and Marxist political economy in particular. And Stephanie Kelton is one of the most outspoken proponents of Modern Monetary Theory.
Small wonder, then, that a discussion between the three of them bears rich intellectual fruit.
