Subject: [AFEEMAIL] Growth Theory


I had a question from a Levy associate that I could not readily answer. Perhaps some of you can come to my assistance. Does anyone know of any heterodox types who work on non-neoclassical theories of growth from which long-term predictions can be generated? Most of the literature I know of in this area is either old or deals with sustainability. But, the issue addressed is to develop a reasonable counter to conventional theory(ies) that appears both more reasonable and also usable in forecasting.

Any takers? Many thanks in advance.
