The pressing need for alternative approaches in economics that is evident in the wake of the global pandemic, has also signalled an opening of space for the ideas and prescriptions of heterodox economics. This timely volume interrogates the rich diversity of the legacy of the heterodox economics, the institutional context and constraints that determine its influence, while addressing important questions about appropriate and desirable strategies and practices for fostering a vibrant constructive heterodox tradition . . .”

“On the heels of a second crisis in just over a decade, this book could not be more timely … This book is a must-read for every student in economics.”
The advent of the global Covid-19 crisis created new challenges for businesses, workers, and policymakers.

The Covid-19 twin economic and health crises call for a deep reflection on the forces that will shape the future of the global economy.
It’s measurement and metric
A new book by Edward Fullbrook
“In a deep re-think, this ground-breaking study teaches new lessons about the very foundations of economics. It is a book for philosophers and economists alike and for anyone concerned with the very core of assumptions on which economics is founded.”

A new ebook from the WEA
Two things seem generally agreed about Donald Trump’s election as President of the United States: it is, for good or for bad, potentially a major historical turning point and its most important determinant was the economic reality experienced today by the majority of Americans.
“This is a great book. Against the background of the dogmatism of much of modern economics, Edward Fullbrook has produced an innovative and wide-ranging argument for narrative pluralism. The timely book is beautifully written, accessible to all, provocative, extraordinarily insightful, and extremely compelling.”
Tony Lawson, Cambridge University, UK
“Essential reading for anyone opposed to planetary suicide. Capitalism is waging a war against nature. And until this becomes obvious to masses of people, we will be limited to reformist projects that can only slow the drive to oblivion, but not stop it. As Smith reminds us, ‘It is no exaggeration to say that this is the most critical moment in human history.'”
