Toward A Gendered Post Keynesianism: Subjectivity And Time In A Nonmodernist Framework


  • Colin Danby


The heterodox “Post Keynesian” school, which emphasizes fundamental uncertainty and the time structure of economic activity, overlaps feminist economics in its treatment of subjectivity and its understanding of the relation between micro and macro phenomena. Why, then, is the intersection of the two fields in the published literature so small? This paper argues that Post Keynesians have adopted a number of additional institutional assumptions that have the effect of excluding gender from their analytical frame. These assumptions can be jettisoned without impairing fundamental Post Keynesian analytics.
