About the conference

The aim of the conference was to bring together diverse perspectives on economic research, policy and theory. As the name suggests, the conference has a Post-Keynesian tradition, however, we welcome contributions from all paradigms and schools of thought. We strongly believe that it is only through a pluralist approach of challenging each of our predisposed perspectives in a constructive manner that we can develop sound, reliable and practicable understanding of the economic challenges we face.
