About the Author

J.E. King, Emeritus Professor, La Trobe University, Australia and Honorary Professor, Federation University Australia


'Post Keynesianism offers an appealing alternative to the mainstream approach to economics, which makes this volume particularly welcome. John King draws on his expertise to provide a clear, accessible and cohesive overview. He explains how Post Keynesian economics is different from other schools of thought, including other 'Keynesianisms', emphasising its distinctive methodology. King explores the nature and evolution of Post Keynesian ideas and spells out their relevance for current economic analysis and policy-making, using the crisis as a case study.'- Sheila Dow University of Stirling, UK and University of Victoria, Canada; 'Advanced Introduction to Post-Keynesian Economics is vintage John King. Written with his usual clarity, thoroughness and hard-headedness, he takes his readers systematically through the structure of post-Keynesian economics, its approach to the central issues and problems that face the modern inter-related world economy and the implication for policy. King places post-Keynesianism in historical and analytical context, compares and contrasts its characteristics with other heterodox approaches, as well as to that of the mainstream. He sets out honestly limitations and assesses realistically its likely future and influence. The volume is a tour de force, as is to be expected of an author who has made fundamental contributions to many different areas over his long and productive working life.'- G.C. Harcourt, Emeritus Reader in The History of Economic Theory, Cambridge 1998; Professor Emeritus, Adelaide 1988; Visiting Professorial Fellow, UNSW 2010-2016
