13-14th of May 2011 | Université de Bourgogne, Roskilde and Aalborg University
On the 75th year anniversary of The General Theory, this year’s conference themes are:
1. The (Macro) economic Consequences of:
• European Monetary System
• European banks and financial institutions
• European labor markets: unemployment, employment and income distribution
• European fiscal policies: Employment, income distribution and budget deficits
• European Environment and economic growth
2. The General Theory after 75 years:
• Keynes’ methodology
• Keynes’s macroeconomic theory as different from mainstream economics in all areas of relevance
3. Teaching Keynes’s macroeconomics:
• How to teach Keynes’s macroeconomics?
• What to do when textbooks are lacking?
Proposals for a full session and/or for individual papers within these topics are especially welcome.
They could either have a mainly political perspective related to the actual crises in Europe or they might focus on theoretical dimension, how to make a macroeconomic analysis in the spirit of the General Theory. Within the latter category we think that a special session commemorating the original contributions by the late Wynne Godley would be timely.
Submission should be send to professor Jesper Jespersen firstname.lastname@example.org not later than 1st February 2011.
The organizing committee consists of:
Jesper Jespersen, Roskilde Universitet
Mogens Ove Madsen, Aalborg Universitet
Louis-Philippe Rochon, Laurentian University
Claude Gnos, Université de Bourgogne, Dijon
