The Fifth “Dijon” Post-Keynesian Conference

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 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
