Summary Vol. 27, No. 2 | April 2018

Summary Spring 2018

This issue of the Summary opens with a policy note regarding the predictions of an impending Chinese “Minsky moment” and the far more likely prospect of another crisis in the United States. It also presents the results of a research project investigating the macroeconomic impact of a one-time cancellation of existing US student loan debt.
 
Working papers included in this issue examine Hyman Minsky’s and Abba Lerner’s writings on the functional finance approach to fiscal policy; the forces underlying the gender pay gap in the countries of the former Soviet Union; and the impact of corporate taxes on capital and labor in a modern, open economy. The issue closes with a look at the newest book in the Levy Institute Book Series, a compilation of essays dedicated to classical political economist, Alessandro Roncaglia.
