Many thanks to Howard Sherman, Bill Dugger, Janet Knoedler, and others for
getting AFEEMAIL back on to substantive discussion.
One brief thought before I get back to research work:
On the textbook front, I suggest we start small with 'modules'. Many
publishers are now putting out supplemental modules to go with introductory
textbooks. For example, if you use Schiller, you can get modules on social
justice, the history of economic thought and economic history, etc. Our
first step (prior to an entire Institutionalist textbook) could be to put
out a 30 page 'module' on Institutionalist Economics, or Heterodox Economics
if you want to introduce students to Marxism, Post-Keynesianism and Feminism
too. I can also envision modules on real world firms and their behavior,
technology, and other topics ignored by mainstream books.
Bill Brown: could sections of your book be edited to form a module on
Institutionalist Economics or Heterodox Economics? If so, I think many of
us would use it as a supplement to our current principles books. Sorry to
hear that your next edition has been cancelled.
