Post Keynesian Economics Study Group (PKSG) is organizing its 7th Annual PhD Student Conference on 28 May 2015, 9am-7pm. The presenters will be PhD students, who are currently enrolled in a PhD programme, and are working on topics relevant to Post Keynesian economics and political economy. The aim is to give an opportunity to the students to present a draft paper out of their PhD dissertation, and receive feedback from the senior researchers as well as other students.

PhD lecture series in advanced macroeconomics in Post-Keynesian, institutionalist, and Marxian political economy

March - June 2015

University of Greenwich and Kingston University are jointly organizing a series of lectures in advanced macroeconomics based on a political economy approach combining institutionalist, Keynesian and Marxist traditions. The lecture series builds on the research expertise of staff in political economy at both universities, and is designed originally for our PhD students; however we welcome PhD students from other universities or Masters students, who wish to explore more advanced topics. The lectures assume knowledge of core concepts in macroeconomics at the Masters level. Each day has two lectures. A brief description of each lecture and an indicative reading list can be found in the link to each lecture below. The location of the lectures alternate between the two universities.

Summer School: Introduction to Post Keynesian Economics and Political Economy

12-14 July 2015, Kingston University

The Global Financial Crisis has demonstrated the limitations of mainstream economic theory and neoliberal economic policy. This three-day workshop will introduce two of the main alternatives to orthodoxy - Post Keynesian Economics and Marxist Political Economy.

The workshop is aimed at students of economics and social sciences. As the aim of Post Keynesian Economics and Political Economy ultimately is to provide the foundation for progressive economic policies, it may of interest for a broader audience.
