Post Keynesians and Others
I begin by considering four alternative positions on the correct relationship between Post Keynesians and mainstream economics: opposition, cooperation, neglect and stealth; I argue that sustained opposition is the only viable strategy. Next I discuss the appropriate relationship between Post Keynesians and mainstream dissenters, concluding that relatively little can be expected to come from it. I then assess the link between Post Keynesians and other schools of heterodox economics, which I consider to be one of friendly pluralism rather than fundamental unity. I conclude that Post Keynesians should remain open to ideas from other heterodox traditions, and might also benefit from becoming more inter-disciplinary.
