Toward a Post-Keynesian Political Economy for the 21st Century
General Reflections and Considerations on an Era Ripe for Change
The global economy is in trouble. Indeed, the era of global neoliberalism, while still supreme, is fraught with serious problems and contradictions, as evidenced by both the recent global financial crisis and the inability of advanced economies to maintain steady growth and improve the condition of citizens. Global neoliberalism suppresses wages, increases inequality, and destroys the social fabric. It is a socioeconomic system in dire need of a replacement—and the responsibility falls clearly on progressive economics to chart a full-fledged alternative course.
