The Economics and Finance Department at SUNY Buﬀalo State invites papers and participants for the 2017 Cross-Border Post Keynesian Conference, to be held on June 19-20. Following the tradition of the Conference, which has previously been held in Vermont, Ottawa, Montreal, Buffalo, and Toronto we are encouraging Post Keynesian scholarship. The general theme of the Conference is “Populism, Heterodoxy, and Globalization.” The Conference is also open to all heterodox economic perspectives and topics. The purpose of the conference is to bring academics, financial, business, political and community leaders together to focus on how to make the economy work better for working-class families.
The keynote speaker is Professor John F. Henry, the recipient of the 2017 Veblen-Commons Award from the Association for Evolutionary Economics, Senior Scholar at the Levy Economics Institute, and Professor Emeritus at California State University, Sacramento. Other distinguished participants include: Jan Kregel (Levy Institute, US), L. Randall Wray (Levy Institute, US), Mario Seccareccia (University of Ottawa, Canada), John Smithin (York University, Canada), and Robert Dimand (Brock University, Canada).
