I have included as an in-message file and as an HTML attachment, the
Call for Papers for the Boston meetings in January 2000.  The call can
be found at:

TO: Members of AFEE

FROM: Yngve Ramstad, President-Elect

DATE: January 29, 1999

                              CALL FOR PAPERS FOR THE ANNUAL MEETING

The next annual meeting of the Association for Evolutionary Economics
will be held in conjunction with meetings of the Allied
Social Sciences Association (ASSA) on January 7, 8, and 9, 2000 in

There will be no general theme for the meeting. However, I want
especially to encourage papers that utilize heterodox modes of
analysis to examine vital continuing and emerging economic developments
and policy issues. Among such "developments and
issues" are: the accelerating consolidation of the global industrial
order; labor market consequences of globalization; the continuing
global financial crisis and the wake of misery it is leaving behind;
continuing "transition difficulties" in the former Soviet Union and
other Eastern European nations; the dangers of (U.S,? world?) deflation;
European (and global) adjustment to the Euro; the
growing health care crisis in the U.S.; "saving" social security; the
continuing fall out from welfare reform; and the unfolding
consequences of deregulation. These topic are only suggestive, and
others will be given equal consideration.

Since 2000 marks the fifty-year anniversary of K. William Kapp's
pioneering study, The Social Costs of Private Enterprise, I also
invite papers examining the degree to which, after fifty additional
years, the system of private enterprise--capitalism--has managed
to ameliorate the problems enumerated by Kapp.

Finally, as always, papers addressing fundamental issues concerning
institutional theory or methodology are also encouraged.

Proposals for complete panels (5 papers) on topics falling within these
categories will be given special consideration. Those who
wish to propose a complete panel should have each potential participant
submit their own abstract as detailed below. Please do not
hesitate to contact me by email at [log in to unmask]  or by telephone at
(401) 874-4113 if you have questions in regard to
developing a panel proposal.

Papers that conform to the requirements specified below and are in final
written form at the time they are presented at the AFEE
meetings in January will be considered for publication in the
proceedings issue of the Journal of Economic Issues. The final
decision on publication of individual papers resides with the Editor of
the JEI. To be considered, papers must be limited to less
that 2,750 words (about ten double-spaced pages of text). In addition,
there must be no more than two pages of charts or tables,
and no more than two pages of double-spaced endnotes. The paper should
be written in a style appropriate for printed publication.
Comments for oral delivery may be ad-libbed as necessary. For additional
manuscript preparation specifications, consult the
"Instructions for Authors" section contained in back issues of the JEI.

Update on AFEE Session Cuts:

Many members will already know that ASSA imposed cuts in the number of
sessions allocated to AFEE for the 1999 meeting.
You will be happy to know that ASSA has decided to hold off on a second
round of cuts. Accordingly, AFEE will able to maintain
the same number of sessions in Boston as this past year.

Essay Prize Award:

In addition to arranging a program for the annual meeting, the
President-Elect also has the task of chairing the Essay Prize
Committee. A copy of the flyer  describing the essay prize contest is
enclosed. Please post it and bring it to the attention of
students. If you need additional copies, please request them from the
Office of the Secretary-Treasurer. The same flyer will be
distributed to economics department graduate advisors in this country
and abroad.


You recently received a membership brochure as part of a membership
renewal mailing. I encourage you to use the brochure to
recruit new members. If you need them, more copies are available from
the Office of the Secretary-Treasurer. The text of the
brochure is also on the AFEE web page: If AFEE is to thrive, all of us
should be as active as
possible in recruiting new members.
