Money, Distribution and Economic Policy takes issue with the inappropriate treatment of money, effective demand and distribution issues in modern mainstream macroeconomics. It presents contributions which are critical of modern orthodoxy and which explore alternative approaches to macroeconomics and economic policy analysis. The contributors explore the following areas: • the development of heterodox theory • the role of money in macroeconomics • the relationship between distribution and aggregate demand • macroeconomic policy issues from a broader heterodox perspective. This study will appeal to scholars, researchers and postgraduate students of macroeconomics and economic policy, money and banking and Post-Keynesian economics.
