Compromised in Crisis: A Greek tragedy or real politik?

Taking a “fallow” period

by Adam David Morton on August 5, 2015

In September, Progress in Political Economy will be one-year old!

Prior to celebrating that anniversary and thanking our readership, we are taking a break for the rest of the month of August from our regularly twice or three-times a week blog posts.

The PPE site will carry events notices throughout this month, notably in relation to the seminar series run within the Department of Political Economy, but a break is always good for the writers and readers as we plan some fresh and novel copy for the final quarter of the year.

In September there will be a number of features that we will be running on PPE.

These will include in and beyond September:

  • a digital audio recording of Erik Olin Wright’s 8th Annual Wheelwright Lecture;
  • a forum on Samuel Knafo’s book The Making of Modern Finance, flowing out of the Past & Present reading group but including wider international contributions too;
  • a translation of an article by Karl Polanyi on issues of emigration;
  • a feature on Nicos Poulantzas’ book State, Power, Socialism;
  • additional contributions from the Marxism Reading Group and its fellows within the Centre for the Study of Social and Global Justice; and
  • much more besides!

So we look forward to celebrating that one-year anniversary, establishing further contacts with and contributions from islands of political economy heterodoxy, and kicking on as successfully into the second year of building Progress in Political Economy!
