History of Economic Thought Elisabeth Allgoewer (University Hamburg) To the documentation: http://www.boeckler.de/veranstaltung_... Twenty years ago, the Research Network Macroeconomics and Macroeconomic Policies (FMM) was founded as a platform for analysis, research and discussion of macroeconomic issues. At the time macroeconomic theory and policy were dominated by neoclassical approaches. In contrast, the network was established to promote alternative, heterodox concepts of macroeconomic theory and refocus economic policy on the goals of high employment, environmentally sustainable growth, price stability, reduced inequality and poverty. At our 20th conference, we will assess the current state of macroeconomics. What has changed in the two decades since the foundation of the network? Is there greater pluralism in theoretical approaches? What are the improvements in modelling the economy in orthodox and heterodox approaches? What is the explanatory power and empirical content of macroeconomics today?

This Development studies Seminar titled “Demolishing Neoliberal Development Myths” was given by Professor Jayati Ghosh, Professor Erik S. Reinert, Professor Rainer Kattel at SOAS University of London on 17 January 2017 You can find out more about this event at https://goo.gl/Njoz2F Find out more about Development Studies at SOAS at https://www.soas.ac.uk/development/ The editors of the Handbook of Alternative Theories of Economic Development attempt to cover a huge canvas, in both time and geography, in order to illustrate processes of economic development from many different angles, with authors of the different chapters hailing from all continents. We believe that in order to merit the title Alternative Theories of Economic Development, this volume should aim at the kind of objectivity that is best achieved by observing a phenomenon from as many angles as possible. If the reader asks ‘alternative to what?’, the reply is that this book has collected alternatives to the neoclassical economic tradition that started with David Ricardo (1817) and his theory of comparative advantage. For centuries, economics was at its very core an art, a practice and a science devoted to ‘economic development’, albeit under a variety of labels: from an idealistic promotion of ‘public happiness’ to the nationalistic creation of wealth and greatness of nations and rulers, and the winning of wars. In some sense, until about a hundred years ago, most economists were ‘development economists’. As we launch the publication of the Handbook, we try to reflect on a variety of these approaches in the history of economic thought and in contemporary analysis. Professor Jayati Ghosh is a distinguished development economist. She has written extensively on topics including international economics, employment, gender, finance and the Indian economy, authoring and co-editing several books and more than 120 scholarly articles. Described by the Guardian newspaper as one of the world’s leading economists, she has received awards from the ILO and UNDP for her research. She teaches at the Centre for Economic Studies and Planning, School of Social Sciences, Jawaharlal Nehru University, New Delhi, India and is the Executive Secretary of International Development Economics Associates (IDEAS), an international network of heterodox development economists. Erik S. Reinert, a Norwegian citizen, is Professor of Technology Governance and Development Strategies at Tallinn University of Technology. His research area is the theory of uneven growth, i.e. the factors which – contrary to the predictions of standard economic theory – cause world economic development to be such an uneven process. Reinert is also chairman of The Other Canon Foundation in Norway. Reinert holds a BA from Hochschule St. Gallen, Switzerland, an MBA from Harvard University, and a Ph.D. in economics from Cornell University. He has published a large number of articles on economic issues, and his work has taken him to more than 60 countries. Reinert’s book How Rich Countries got Rich and why Poor Countries Stay Poor (Constable & Robinson, 2007) has been published, or is under translation into, about 20 languages. In 2008 he received the Myrdal Prize from the European Association of Evolutionary Political Economy, and in 2016 World Economics Association placed his book on the shortlist of 50 from which the 10 most important economics books over the last 100 years were to be selected by vote. Professor Rainer Kattel holds the chair of Innovation Policy and Technology Governance at Ragnar Nurkse School of Innovation and Governance, Tallinn University of Technology, Estonia. He has published extensively on innovation policy, its governance and specific management issues. His research interests include also financial policy and financialization. His recent books include The Elgar Handbook of Alternative Theories of Economic Development edited with Erik Reinert and Jayati Ghosh (Elgar, 2016) and Financial Regulations in the European Union edited with Jan Kregel and Mario Tonveronachi (Routledge, 2016). In 2013, he received Estonia's National Science Award for his work on innovation policy.

The Department of English at ASU presents Professor Sir Jonathan Bate, playwright, biographer, scholar, and Provost of Worcester College, Oxford, in a lecture supported by the Office of the Provost. Bate, who has just published a much-heralded biography of British poet laureate Ted Hughes, presented the talk, "Ted Hughes: Eco-Warrior, or Eco-Worrier?" A well-known as a biographer, critic, broadcaster and scholar, Jonathan Bate is Provost of Worcester College and Professor of English Literature in the University of Oxford. He has wide-ranging research interests in Shakespeare and Renaissance Literature, Romanticism, biography and life-writing, ecocriticism, contemporary poetry and theatre history. He is a Fellow of the British Academy and the Royal Society of Literature, as well as an Honorary Fellow of St Catharine's College, Cambridge. Before moving to Oxford in 2011, he was a Fellow of Trinity Hall, Cambridge, then King Alfred Professor of English Literature at the University of Liverpool, and then Professor of Shakespeare and Renaissance Literature at the University of Warwick. He is a Governor of the Royal Shakespeare Company, broadcasts regularly for the BBC, writes for the Guardian, Times, TLS and Sunday Telegraph, and has held visiting posts at Yale and UCLA. In 2006 he was awarded a CBE in the Queen's 80th Birthday Honours for his services to higher education and in 2015 he was knighted in the New Year Honours for services to literary scholarship and higher education. Bate is renowned in the field of ecocriticism, having published what is considered “the first ecological reading of English literature”—his Song of the Earth (Picador/Harvard UP, 2000). Previously, in his Romantic Ecology (Routledge 1991), Bates articulated the conservationist influence of William Wordsworth’s poetry; the work has been enormously influential on later Romanticist work on literature and the environment. In his award-winning biography of John Clare (2003), Bates discussed the laborer-poet’s interest in environmental fragility and ecological change, calling him “an ecologist, before his time; a conservationist.” Bate is also an advocate for the importance of humanities education. In an interview published in British Academy Review (February 2014), he said “one of the reasons for studying the humanities is precisely that the humanities draw our attention to big, valuable, important things that cannot be contained or constrained within a model of economic benefit. Beauty, truth – these are difficult, abstract concepts, concepts that defy quantification.” Monday, Nov. 23, 2015 Arizona State University, Tempe campus

Murray Rothbard died before he could write the third volume of his famous History of Economic Thought, which would cover the birth and development of the Austrian School, through the Keynesian Revolution and Chicago School. With this six-lecture course, however, the History of Economic Thought is complete. 5. Mises and Austrian Economics The essence of Austrian economics is based on the analysis of individual action. In other words, it is about individuals doing things, having purposes and goals and pursuing them. Other schools of economics deal with aggregates, groups, classes, wholes of one sort or another, without focusing on the individual first and building up from there. Austrian economics builds on an earlier French and Italian tradition, really beginning with the Spanish scholastics in the 16th century, and then proceeding on in France with Cantillion and Turgot in the 18th century. Economics not only predated Smith by several centuries, but also was much better than Smith. It seems not to be an accident that labor value came from Scotland because Scotland was the classical home of Calvinism, and Calvinist doctrine is that labor is a key thing. Everybody is doomed to work and consumer enjoyment is evil. Three fallacies are embedded in the British classical school: labor theory of value, aggregate class struggle of shares of income, and a focus on nonexistent, unreal, long-run equilibrium. Additionally, Ricardo totally divided macro from a micro sphere. There is no talk about entrepreneurs. Subjective value theory, individuals making their valuations in marginal units, preferences are ordinal (by ranking), and economics is more a philosophic subject, not mathematical, are four Austrian issues. Capital takes time. Interest is determined by a person’s time premium rate on present goods immediately available. The entrepreneur is the key figure in the profit and loss system. Mises healed the micro-macro split, by applying the marginal utility theory to money. The only thing an increase in the money supply does is to dilute the purchasing power of the money unit. First receivers of new money benefit to greater degrees than final recipients. Money must originate out of the free market, not by government edict. Fractional reserve banking is fraud. Mises created his Austrian theory of the business cycle. Increasing the central banking supply of money not only causes inflation, but also causes other disturbances. Mises singlehandedly stopped Austrian inflation in the 1920s, stopped it from becoming hyperinflation. He also warned about the Great Depression. Prices were being kept level, but they should fall in free markets due to increased productivity (as they do in computers). Mises became the uncompromising, hardcore laissez-faire capitalist. Human Action is the great work of the 20th century. The fifth in a series of six lectures on the History of Economic Thought.

In "Economic Thought Before Adam Smith," Murray N. Rothbard traces economic ideas from ancient sources to show that laissez-faire liberalism and economic thought itself began with the scholastics and early Roman, Greek, and canon law. He celebrates Aristotle and Democritus, for example, but loathes Plato and Diogenes. He is kind toward Taoism and Stoicism. He is no fan of Tertullian but very much likes St. Jerome, who defended the merchant class. Read by Jeff Riggenbach.

This project was created with Explain Everything ™ Interactive Whiteboard for iPhone. Transcript: In this video we will be looking at Theories of Income Distribution and why people are paid how they are paid. The Marginal Theory of Income Distribution states that the division of income among the economy’s factors of production is determined by each factors marginal revenue product at market equilibrium. Wage inequality is the idea that two people are paid different wages for their jobs. For example, how college graduates are paid more than high school graduates. This inequality can be attributed to factors that are consistent with Marginal Productivity Theory of Income Distribution. One possible explanation is Compensating Differentials. These are wage differences across jobs that reflect the fact that some jobs are less pleasant or more dangerous than others. Another possible explanation is Differences in talent- people who are more talented are more likely to produce higher quality products which are then in turn more desired. A final possible explanation which coincides with the Marginal Productivity Theory of Income Distribution is the differences in quantity of human capital. Human capital refers to the accumulated education, experience, and training possessed by an individual. More human capital usually results in more productivity, and thusly a greater wage. The Marginal Productivity Theory of Income Distribution is based on the assumption that factor markets are perfectly competitive. In such markets, we can expect workers to be paid the equilibrium value of their marginal product, regardless of who they are. However, thanks to unions, workers are paid an unequal amount as unions function to help raise the wage of their members. A second source of wage inequality is the phenomenon of efficiency wages, which is a wage paid when an employer pays above the competitive wage level as an incentive for workers to be more productive and reduce employee turnover. This works like a price floor in that it creates a surplus of workers who want an efficient wage. This causes those with jobs to work harder in order to keep them. Discrimination is something which has been often times attempted at being resolved, however there has been no concrete answer yet. The main insight economic analysis offers is that is that discrimination is not a natural consequence of market competition. Infact, market forces tend to work against discrimination. Although Marginal Productivity Theory of Income Distribution is a well established part of economic theory, it is a source of controversy. There are two main objections to this theory. The first is that in the real world, we see large disparities in income among workers, who in the eyes of some, should be receiving the same payment. The best example of this would be the differences in average wages between genders and races. The second is that many people wrongly believe that the Marginal Productivity Theory of Income Distribution gives a moral justification for the distribution of income, implying that the existing distribution is fair and appropriate. This often leads people who believe that the current distribution is unfair to reject this theory.

Since the 1980s, Pierre Bourdieu’s influence in sociology has increased markedly, including on the study of consumption and economic life (Sallaz and Zavisca 2007). Bourdieu’s formulation of multiple types of capital (economic, cultural and social) and their role in producing and reproducing durable inequality has been highly productive in a variety of contexts. However, while scholars have examined practices of distinction, the structure of particular fields, and the role of specific capitals in social reproduction, there has been less attention to economic exchanges at a micro, interactional level (King 2000). In this paper, we use a Bourdieusian approach to study new kinds of exchanges in the “sharing economy” and the ways in which distinction and inequality operate within them. To do this, we extend Bourdieu by bringing in conceptual tools from relational economic sociology. This literature, pioneered by Viviana Zelizer (2010, 2005b, 2012), emphasizes the importance of meaning, the role of culture in structuring economic activity, and the idea that economic exchanges require ongoing interpersonal negotiations. We use relational analysis to study how people deploy, convert, and use their capital. In particular, we show how cultural capital is used to establish superior position in the context of various types of exchanges. Thus, our contribution is an investigation into how Bourdieusian inequality is reproduced via interpersonal relations in the context of exchange.

This lecture titled "Contentious Empowerment?: Women as Agents of Change in Bangladesh" was given by Sohela Nazneen (Fellow, Institute of Development Studies) at the SOAS South Asia Institute, SOAS University of London on 7 March 2019. Find out more at http://bit.ly/2UuGVLD Bangladesh presents an interesting paradox when it comes to women’s political and economic empowerment. Bangladesh has achieved remarkable progress on some fronts, which include a rapid decline gender disparities in education (school enrolment), a rising female labour force participation, a significant reduction in maternal mortality, and a strong numerical presence of women in parliament and local government. However, gender inequalities in some areas remain persistent- apparent in the high levels of malnutrition among women and girls, child marriage, and violence against women. Community and social norms still restrict women’s access to resources and women exercising choice and voice. I highlight the unevenness of progress when it comes to women’s empowerment. Applying a historical lens, I explore the role played by women themselves in making changes happen and women’s movement have negotiated with the Bangladeshi state and national and international actors to secure gender equality outcomes. I also reflect on the national and international factors that created opportunities to promote women’s empowerment, how national and regional economic and political shifts may positively or adversely influence the choices and pathways for Bangladeshi women to advance their interests and change the future. Biography Sohela Nazneen is a fellow based at the Institute of Development Studies (IDS), University of Sussex. Before joining to IDS in 2016, Sohela was based at the University of Dhaka, Bangladesh.

Climate Change and the ‘New Green Revolution’ in India was a seminar given by Marcus Taylor (Queen’s University, Canada) at the Department of Development Studies, SOAS University of London on 26 February 2019. Find out more at http://bit.ly/2TmZZWN Rural India is repeatedly argued to be in the midst of a social crisis as manifested in indicators of household indebtedness, farmer suicides, poor nutrition and food insecurity. Such issues are amplified in the context of stark environmental challenges, including groundwater depletion, land degradation and climate change-induced droughts and floods. While mass protests have led the national government to promise a doubling of farmer incomes by 2023, the primary means to address this goal has been to reaffirm technology-based solutions. These are aimed to promote a ‘New Green Revolution’ that can raise yields and increase incomes while building 'climate resilience'. Based on fieldwork conducted on three new agricultural technologies across three distinct regions of south India, this talk discusses both the possibilities and limits to such a strategy. It highlights why technology-centred responses to rural distress, while undoubtedly benefiting some social classes, frequently reinforce the very social polarisation that they are meant to resolve. Marcus Taylor is an Associate Professor in the Department of Global Development Studies and School of Environmental Studies at Queen’s University, Kingston, Canada. He researches and teaches on the political ecology of development, with a focus on agriculture, labour and livelihoods. His recent books include The Political Ecology of Climate Change Adaptation (Routledge, 2015) and Global Labour Studies (with Sébastien Rioux, Polity Press, 2018). He is currently completing a manuscript entitled Climate-smart Agriculture: A Critical Introduction (Routledge).

Venue: IIHS Bangalore City Campus Date & Time: 15th June, 2018 at 6.30pm Cities in the cinemas of South India | Representation of Bengaluru in Kannada Cinema | Masterclass by MK Raghavendra A large amount of research on Indian cinema has focused on Hindi films. The objective of this series of lectures is to delve deeper into the cinemas of South India - specifically the role, position and trajectories of cities in these films. Representation of Bengaluru in Kannada cinema: The first Masterclass by MK Raghavendra, will touch upon the representation of space in Indian popular cinema and the city as an emblem, focusing on the representation of Bengaluru in Kannada cinema. Kannada cinema has traditionally not been a pan-Kannadiga cinema but largely confined to former Princely Mysore. Bengaluru has a specific meaning in Kannada cinema because of its historical role under the British in relation to Princely Mysore and subsequently as a site for central government investment. Bengaluru has been viewed ambivalently by Kannada cinema. The talk will primarily be about the changing meaning of Bengaluru to Kannada cinema and its constituency and whether this can have any bearing on our understanding of how Karnataka's political class views Bengaluru. MK Raghavendra: MK Raghavendra, who got a master’s degree in science and worked in the financial sector for over twenty-five years, is a writer on culture and politics, much of his writing focused on cinema. His chosen approach is textual analysis with an emphasis on political discourse. He received the National Award for Best Film Critic in 1997 and was awarded a Homi Bhabha Fellowship in 2000-01. He has authored three volumes of academic film criticism – Seduced by the Familiar: Narration and Meaning in Indian Popular Cinema (Oxford, 2008), Bipolar Identity: Region, Nation and the Kannada Language Film (Oxford, 2011) and The Politics of Hindi Cinema in the New Millennium: Bollywood and the Anglophone Indian Nation (Oxford, 2014). He has also written two books on cinema for the general reader 50 Indian Film Classics (Collins, 2009) and Director’s Cut: 50 Film-makers of the Modern Era (Collins, 2013). His essays on Indian cinema find a place in Indian and international anthologies. He has also published extensively in Indian newspapers, periodicals and journals like The Indian Review of Books, Caravan, Economic and Political Weekly, Frontline, The Book Review and Biblio: A Review of Books. His book The Oxford Short Introduction to Bollywood was published in 2016 and an anthology edited by him Beyond Bollywood: The cinemas of South-India (HarperCollins) in 2017. His academic writings have been anthologized in books published by Oxford University Press, Sage, Routledge, BFI (British Film Institute). His writing has been translated into French and Polish.

Overview: 1:17 I think, politically, Erdoğan does not have an easy role ahead of him. The results were not a massive approval of his policy, which is, at the present time, to change the constitution. The fortcoming election will be more crucial. Probably, he needs a mandate from this election to go ahead with radical constitutional changes. 2:15 Turkish economoy stabilised under Erdoğan. The crisis of 2001 was effectively solved by his administration. He also managed to form what Gramsci would call a 'new historic bloc' in Turkey in terms of supporting specific Anatolian small and medium-sized enterprises and a new entrepreneurial class emerged that is linked to Islam and his political and religious views. That's the bloc that supports Erdoğan's policy. 4:00 The bulk of Anatolia supported Erdoğan, where Erdoğan's economic policies had an important effect because his policies cut absolute poverty out of a large population of Anatolian peasants. We should not forget that if we want to have a class analysis of the vote in Turkey. 4:43 It [economic relationship between Turkey and the European Union] is an interactive relationship. Turkey needs European markets and European economies -big exporters- need Turkey, which is a bigger market than the entire of the Balkans. 5:05 The talk about autorinationism and human rights is a smoke screen. They [global markets] can use it if they want to penalise Turkey or they can say 'this is fine and Turkey is a democracy'. 6:43 Turkey is already an energy hub. Turkey has to make a major decision [about] whether to strike a permanent deal with Russia or continue to be part of the Western system of defence and security and geopolitical arrangements, which primarily include oil and gas pipelines projects. This is a crucial issue for Turkey and I don't think they have a policy yet on that. 7:15 I think one of Erdoğan's biggest mistakes domestically is his involvement in Syria and his confrontational attitute to the Kurdish question. This - not human rights [issues] or autoritarinism - may bring him down. Erdoğan will be forced down domestically from Turkish political and social forces because of his outrageous policies in Syria and Southeastern Turkey. 8:10 Turkey's economy is overheating. It is a big economy and interests are pushing Turkey to go out to become a small emperialist in the region and they talk about Balkans, Asia and Cyprus to become a neo-Ottoman. This can be contained and this is not serious. He Erdoğan] should have been more careful about that. 8:39 In each co-operation with a state to become a hub around the region, Turkey is much bigger and much more useful for any great power in the region. So Turkey will always be the number one. But it cannot treat all these surrounding states in a confrontational manner.

From the Top 209 Eponymous Adjectives of Famous Figures as ranked by Google Ngram Viewer sources: Google Ngram Viewer Wikipedia, an aggregate of social actions “Weber’s The Protestant Ethic” on In Our Time with Melvyn Bragg, BBC Radio 4 http://www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/b03yqj31 “Weber and Durkheim: A Methodological Comparison” By Henrik Jensen (2012, Routledge; pp. 1-8) Max Weber – Ideal Types Debra Marshall https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rOCLTci_INE Sociological Thinker : Max Weber by Cec Ugc https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qZQueVk3ynE music: “Outburst” by Scott Sprankle https://www.youtube.com/user/Spranklemusic/ script: Max Weber was an intellectual titan in the last days of the generalist scholar. By the late 1800s, most academic disciplines had become more and more specialized, but you get the sense that Weber was resisting this trend. Initially a lawyer, he earned his PhD in law at age 25 before moving into history. He seems to have learned his native German, as well as ancient Roman, histories as a child, so now, as a young adult, he was studying more recent European history, which led him to focus on economics. With 3 books in three disciplines published before age 30, Weber was ready to actually challenge himself: he helped create the discipline of sociology. 100 years later, he still dominates it. Weber is responsible for 2 of the top 4 books of the 20th century, according to the International Sociological Association. It is probably The Protestant Ethic and the Spirit of Capitalism, however, that has had the biggest impact on academia in general. In this 1905 work, Weber argued that Protestant values were the most influential factor in developing capitalism. From the Weberian perspective, cultural forces, rather than economics or politics, can be the drivers of history. This is why Protestant England and the USA did very well as capitalism became the dominant economic regime after the industrial revolution, but India and China did not. The culture of Protestantism encouraged people to work hard and save their money, according to Weber. The argument is that society moves via the buildup of individual human factors. It is this bottom-up approach which makes sociology distinct from, say, politics, which is more top-down, or philosophy, which is more abstract and generalized. Compare it to psychology, where the question is often “How does society affect the individual?” A sociologist is more likely to ask “How does the individual affect society?” This style of analysis was developed as European nation-states were solidifying and capitalist powers were feeling the effects of the Second Industrial Revolution in the second half of the 1800s and beginning of the 1900s. It wasn’t just Weber, of course: in France there was Durkheim, in the US there was DuBois, and in England and Germany there was Marx. Naturally, not all these thinkers agreed with each other. The competing theory with which the Weberian is often compared is Marxist. The Marxist approach to history (and therefore Hegelian—you can’t escape Hegel!) is scientific, mechanical. Change occurs because economic or political pressure forces the situation to change. It is inevitable and therefore somewhat predictable. But history in the Weberian sense is messier, it can take dramatic turns based on the cultural values of the actors. For Weber, a fundamental principle of investigation is “social action,” but this is hard to identify on a large scale because any one person’s social action will change depending on context—are they at work, at home, are they excited, or depressed…. So Weberian theory rejects the Marxist assertion that human society behaves mechanistically, like a part of the natural world. This debate on the nature of historical momentum rages on today. There is more to say, but one final concept offered here that continues to be influential is the Weberian model of bureaucracy. Weber noticed that efficient capitalist workplaces were becoming less personal and more standardized. As companies got larger, they couldn’t guarantee that every employee understood the goals or functions of the whole business. So workers were given specific tasks and were expected to become very good at that thing; it was the equivalent of the office taking on characteristics of the assembly line. This might seem normal to us today, but Weber the generalist scholar pointed out that there are multiple ways to organize a bureaucracy and we should be conscious about how we treat our workers, considering whether or not we’d prefer they retain their personal characteristics while at the workplace. So, when you hear of Weberian theory, or Weberian sociology, it basically means classical sociology in general, but more specifically it’s an attempt to describe the culture and organization of capitalist societies.
