The third issue of the fifteenth volume of this journal again offers the established combination of forum contributions, articles and book reviews.
Still, it is a very special one to us. It is with great sadness that we inform you of the passing of Fernando José Cardim de Carvalho on 16 May 2018. He was an outstanding member of the editorial board and a long-standing supporter of this journal. We feel honoured to be able to include one of his papers in this issue which was accepted for publication last year. The issue also includes an obituary by Fernando Ferrari Filho which reminds us of the influential post-Keynesian scholar and outstanding personality Fernando José Cardim de Carvalho was.
