Essays in Memory of Athanasios Asimakopulos. Edited by Geoffrey Harcourt et al.
The essays in this volume were written by colleagues and friends of the late Athanasios (Tom) Asimakopulos. They relate to those areas to which he contributed so much in his teaching and his writings. Most of the essays are concerned with interpretations and extensions, both theoretical and empirical, of the work of Keynes, Kalecki, and Sraffa, and with the relationships among these three authors. Many take as their starting point Asimakopulos’s own interpretations and extensions of the work, of these authors. There is also an essay on public pensions, which was a long-standing interest of Asimakopulos and of his first mentor, the late J. C. Weldon. The essays reflect the belief that guided Asimakopulos’s work: that economic research plays a decisive role in the development of a civilized, humane society. The volume includes essays and comments by Louis Ascah, Paul Davidson, Gilles Dostaler, Terri Gigantes, Geoffrey Harcourt, Jan A. Kregel, Heinz Kurz, Dimitri B. Papadimitriou, Sergio Parrinello, Alessandro Roncaglia, Robin Rowley, Neri Salvadori, Claudio Sardoni, and Bertram Schefold.
