History of Economic Ideas


copertina
Aim & Scope

History of Economic Ideas is a new international series of Quaderni di storia dell'economia politica, a journal founded in 1983 to promote collaboration between scholars who share an historical approach to the major issues, the various "revolutions" which have left their mark on economics and the spread of economic ideas beyond the narrow circle of specialists.

History of Economic Ideas rejects the dichotomy between "analysis" and "culture": both aspects are of equal importance for a wider understanding of the subject. In a period such as our own, where paradigms which once seemed unshakeable are now being challenged, a multidisciplinary analysis of the historical development of economics might contribute to shedding light on the issues at the root of current debate.

Besides essays and critical surveys, the journal includes archive material and reviews of new books on history of economics.
History of Economic Ideas is double-blind peer reviewed.

    "A Great Depression, Again?", edited by Jonathan Kirshner, Jan Kregel and Roberto Marchionatti (HEI 3/2014).
    The issue collects papers presented at the international conference "A Great Depression, Again? Rethinking World Relationships", held at the Fondazione Luigi Einaudi, Torino, in October 2013. Its main aim is contribute to deepen the understanding of the current crisis in both the global economy and in economic theory, by focusing on the antecedent of the Great Crisis and depression of the 1930s. Adopting an explicitly transdisciplinary perspective, the issue brings together economic history, financial history and international political economy, as well as history of economic thought and economic methodology, with special concern for Keynes and Minsky. A section is devoted to the representation, through the cinema, of the hard times of the American Great Depression, a unique moment of history that resonates again today amid the new social troubles of these years.
    Contributors: Giaime Alonge, Anna Carabelli, Giulia Carluccio, Mario Cedrini, Luca Einaudi, Luca Fantacci, Leonardo Gandini, Jonathan Kirshner, Jan Kregel, Andrea Mattacheo.
