There is a powerful and enduring economic tradition which holds that a paramount concern for economists should be the promotion of social justice. This book collects essays by many of the best known contemporary economists, in memory of Fausto Vicarelli, a leading figure in Keynesian economics. The contributors discuss the role of economic theory in tackling poverty and unemployment in both the developed and developing world and in promoting a new international economic order. The outstanding international team of contributors includes Anthony. B. Atkinson, Paul Davidson, Jan Kregel, James Tobin and Hyman P. Mynsky.
