This collection of essays is designed to illustrate the variety, complexity, and power of non-neoclassical economic thinking. The essays define the fundamental questions differently, employ different analytical tools, and arrive at different conclusions. The two strands of non-neoclassical thinking that occupy most of the book are the neo-Keynesian and the neoMarxian. The bulk of the book is composed of essays on microeconomics, macroeconomics, trade, comparative systems, and welfare, with an unusual section on property rights and social hierarchy.

Industry Reviews

' ... excellent ... the contributions are competent, stimulating, and relevant ...' Journal of Economic Literature ' ... it is a very welcome book, and its blend of constructive and destructive criticism of the neoclassical view of capitalism is generally quite effective ...' The Economic Journal
