A structured post-Keynesian reading list

This reading list provides introductory and advanced readings for those interested in post-Keynesian economics. The readings cover various topics and include journal articles, book chapters and books. The reading list is primarily intended for undergraduate and postgraduate students as well as for academics who wish to incorporate post-Keynesian economics into their teaching. The list has purposefully been kept short, but tries to give a broad overview of the richness of post-Keynesian economics. The reading list is structured by thematic headings and we suggest a few readings for each topic. The list is not comprehensive and unavoidably excludes some important readings. Additional valuable sources can be found in the reference lists of the suggested readings.

The reading list was last updated in July 2020.
