In the interview, Robert Skidelsky discusses the emergence of political influence of a certain school of economic thought and how the success of an economic theory depends on the power relations in the society. He introduces the historical example of Keynesian economics and its replacement by liberal economic theory and policy in the aftermath of the Great Depression, and transfers this historical case to the dominant paradigm of austerity policies in the Europe as response to rising public debts caused by the Financial Crisis. He contrasts austerity policies with a Keynesian approach. Furthermore, he relates the targets of policy to the underlying power structures, for example when not the reduction of unemployment but the protection of financial capital is politically addressed.

Ce podcast présente l’incompatibilité entre notre modèle économique et l’exigence écologique. « Comment affronter sérieusement les désordres de la planète si l’on s’évertue à réanimer un modèle économique qui en est la cause » ? s’est exclamé Gaël Giraud (chef économiste de l’Agence Française de Développement). La question de l'équation entre les impératifs économiques de court terme (croissance, emploi) et les exigences planétaires de long terme (l'avenir de notre monde) semble toujours irrésolue.

L'Observatoire régional de l'environnement (ORE) expose les instruments économiques que nous avons à disposition pour faire face à la gravité des problèmes environnementaux (réchauffement climatique, stress hydrique, pollution des eaux continentales et marines, érosion de la biodiversité). On apprend quels sont les enjeux à mettre un prix à la nature (pollution, biodiversité...) et quels sont les avantages et inconvénients de chaque mesure mise en place par l'État pour agir pour une transition écologique durable. Enfin, il propose différentes méthodes qui pourraient améliorer notre approche à inclure notre environnement dans notre système économique en prenant des cas concrets (eau potable, prix du carbone...)

Here we look at the effect of the 2008 Climate Change Act passed in Parliament in the United Kingdom as an effort to curb emissions in all sectors. The Act aside from setting goals to become a low-carbon economy sets up an independent committee on Climate Change to ensure the implementation of policies to comply with the ultimate goal of 80% reduction in total emissions in 2050. I make use of the Synthetic Control Method (SCM) to create a comparative case study in which the creation of a synthetic UK serves as a counterfactual where the treatment never occurred (Cunningham, 2018).

In spite of the manifold critique about the state of economics in the aftermath of the financial crisis, an even increasing presence of economists and economic experts can be observed in the public sphere during the last years. On the one hand this reflects the still dominant position of economics in the social sciences as well as the sometimes ignorant attitude of economists towards findings of other social sciences. On the other hand this paper shows that the public debate on politico-economic issues among economists is dominated by a specific subgroup of economists, tightly connected to an institutional network of “German neoliberalism”. This group of “public economists” (i) is dominant in public debates even after the financial crisis, (ii) reproduces the formative German economic imaginary of the Social Market Economy in a German neoliberal interpretation and (iii) has a good access to German economic policymaking, rooted in a long history of economic policy advice.

How did the industrialized nations of North America and Europe come to be seen as the appropriate models for post-World War II societies in Asia, Africa, and Latin America? How did the postwar discourse on development actually create the so-called Third World? And what will happen when development ideology collapses? To answer these questions, Arturo Escobar shows how development policies became mechanisms of control that were just as pervasive and effective as their colonial counterparts.

One hundred years ago the idea of 'the economy' didn't exist. Now, improving the economy has come to be seen as perhaps the most important task facing modern societies.

Finance at the Threshold offers a unique perspective from an English economic and monetary historian. In it the author asks: Why did the banks stop lending to one another, and why now?
