The 12th annual PKES summer school on post-Keynesian Economics and Political Economy is back with a renewed focus. Spend three days discussing topics in heterodox economics with leading economists and a group of peers with likeminded research interests. This year’s summer school offers a topics-based introduction to post-Keynesian economics and Political Economy, including: growth and distribution, fiscal policy and austerity, ecological and environmental macroeconomics, money and finance, development, feminist economics, income distribution, and current debates around inflation and the cost of living crisis.
