Changing definitions: a comment on Davidson's critique of King's history of Post Keynesianism
In a review of John King's book, Paul Davidson has argued that King had been in error when including Sraffians and Kaleckians in his Post Keynesian classification. Davidson seems to believe that Post Keynesianism should be restricted to Fundamental Keynesianism. It is shown that King followed the taxonomy proposed by Davidson in the 1970s and early 1980s. Hence, Davidson cannot blame King for using these definitions. The paper concludes by claiming that despite their idiosyncrasies, heterodox theories contain a large amount of commonalities that ought to be underlined.
