Marx, Veblen, and Contemporary Institutional Political Economy

Principles and Unstable Dynamics of Capitalism
New Horizons in Institutional and Evolutionary Economics series

This book uses an institutional–evolutionary approach to analyse economic problems associated with developments in capitalism during the second half of the twentieth century. It argues that economics should centre on institutions – the durable fabric of the economy over time. Drawing on the foundations of Marxist and institutional political economy, the book traces the lineages of institutional themes, as well as considering feminist, post-Keynesian, holistic economics and Schumpeterian perspectives. The nature of institutions in the growth and instability of capitalism is then explored with reference to social structures of accumulation.
