Microeconomics: A Critical Companion offers students a clear and concise exposition of mainstream microeconomics from a heterodox perspective. Covering topics from consumer and producer theory to general equilibrium to perfect competition, it sets the emergence and evolution of microeconomics in both its historical and interdisciplinary context.
Macroeconomics is fundamental to our understanding of how the world functions today. But too often our understanding is based on orthodox, dogmatic analysis. This distinctive book draws upon years of critical questioning and teaching and exposes how macroeconomic theory has evolved from its origins to its current impoverished and extreme state.
The Greek economy is in crisis for the seventh consecutive year. Since its beginning in 2009, it has already curried the brunt of two Economic Adjustment Programmes (popularly called Memoranda) organised by the EU-ECB-IMF troika and agreed by the Greek political and economic establishment that led to a cumulative depression of approximately 27% of the initial GDP, a skyrocketing unemployment around 27% and mounting immiserisation of the working class and the middle strata. The SYRIZA government betrayed its declarations of rejecting the Memoranda policy, capitulated unconditionally to the directives and demands of the troika and signed a new 3rd Economic Adjustment Programme. The new programme follows the lines of the previous ones and dictates more austerity for the country and immiserisation for the popular classes.
