The impact of Kalecki's (1899-1970) ideas lagged behind Keynes's work, because Kalecki's writings were in Polish and he was little known outside of Poland in the 1930s; but the two overlapped and converged in many areas. In this two-volume set, edited and introduced by Sawyer (economics, U. of Leeds, UK), 55 articles dating from 1966 to 1997 -- a combination of Kalecki's own writings and papers that evaluate and extend his work -- are reprinted in (legible) facsimile. The first volume focuses on capitalist economies, notably the effective demand, pricing, and distributions of income based on the degree of monopoly, cycles and growth, and the political economy of full employment. The second volume emphasizes money, finance, and taxation, as well as Kalecki's work on socialist economies and developing economies. Indexed by name only.
