This volume of essays is not only a tribute to a distinguished scholar, it is also a specifically planned assessment of the six most important lines of enquiry of Luigi Pasinetti's research programme. The book attempts to evaluate and give new insights into Pasinetti's contributions. The volume also provides a general assessment of the significance of a number of key issues of the "pure" post-Keynesian school of economic thought which had, and still has a strong hold in the University of Cambridge, and to which Luigi Pasinetti has become the "senior heir" since the deaths of the founding members: Piero Sraffa, Joan Robinson, Nicholas Kaldor and Richard Kahn, in the 1980s. Mauro Baranzini has also edited "Advances in Economic Theory", "Foundations of Economics" (with R. Scazzieri) and "The Economic Theory of Structure and Change" (with R. Scazzieri), and is the author of "A Theory of Wealth Accumulation and Distribution". G.C. Harcourt is the author of "Keynes and his Contemporaries", "Controversies in Political Economy", "International Monetary Problems and Supply-side Economics", "On Political Economists and Modern Political Economy" and "Post-Keynesian Essays in Biography".
