focus on some main lines of development of post-Keynesian macroeconomics since the mid 1990s and review some major contributions, several, but not all, having been presented at the FMM conferences. The selection of topics to be covered is somewhat subjective and biased, and I do not claim to be comprehensive in a broader sense. Readers who are interested in the current state of post-Keynesian economics in general and the broad range of topics and approaches covered by this research programme might want to take a look at the latest books by King (2015) and Lavoie

10.  Mega-urban developments on the Arabian Peninsula for a post-oil future Burkay Pasin and Asli Ceylan Oner INTRODUCTION The European Association of National Metrology Institutes defines mega-cities as ‘metropolitan agglomerations which concentrate more than 10 million inhabitants’ (EURAMET, 2013, p. 1). In order to give a comprehensive picture of the current and future needs of ‘mega-cities’ in terms of energy and environment, the association addresses 40 existing most populated cities in the world, including capitals such as London, Paris, Tokyo, New York

This book offers a timely and critical evaluation of the Chicago School approach to antitrust law. Recent judgements by the United States Supreme Court (in cases such as Kodak) and the debate surrounding the Microsoft monopoly have led to the view that antitrust has entered the post-Chicago era, in which previous immoderations are tempered, and more refined and accurate analyses take precedence. This claim is made at a time when European competition policy is gradually embracing an economics-based approach. The authors discuss the economic foundations of competition policy and the different ways in which both American and European competition law does – or does not – take account of economic insights. Although the book makes no claim to provide a definitive answer to the host of questions arising from the complexities of antitrust, it does offer an important contribution to a better understanding of the many ‘interfaces’ between economic thinking and sound legal policy.

19 Religion and post-disaster development* Ismet Fanany and Rebecca Fanany INTRODUCTION This chapter explores the role religion and religious organizations can play in development in a post-disaster context. Special attention will be given to the development efforts in Aceh, Indonesia, following the 2004 Indian Ocean tsunami. This province of Indonesia was disproportionately affected by the disaster, both in terms of loss of life and physical destruction. This chapter begins with an overview of the place of religion in development and how scholars and

Hungary’s post-communist development in comparative perspective Béla Greskovits INTRODUCTION1 ‘Transition to what?’ This major puzzle of the transformation studies appears to be solved in Hungary. In 1999 Hungary’s social system can be described as democratic capitalism. Viewed in the perspective of Hungary’s own past, this outcome is a successful one. The decade between 1989 and 1999 is the longest democratic period of this country’s post-World War I history. Furthermore, at the end of the 1990s Hungary’s economy

2.  Welfare state development in the post-communist transition This chapter highlights the circumstances and the socio-political framework within which welfare state transformation in the post- ommunist countries c has taken place in the past two decades. Starting from a firm, yet country- wise varying institutional setting of a “state- ocialist” welfare state, all CEE s countries were obliged to implement fundamental reforms in the social policy sector in order to respond to the challenges posed by the transition period. The context for welfare policy

1 The development of post-war Chicago price theory J. Daniel Hammond Introduction Within a short time after the end of the Second World War the University of Chicago economics faculty was transformed. Jacob Viner, who along with Frank H. Knight personified Chicago price theory from the 1920s through the war years, decamped for Princeton. Though Knight remained at Chicago, he was less involved in the department’s graduate program than he had been before the war. Henry Schultz, who brought his pioneering work on empirical estimation of demand to Chicago in 1926

effort to think about such challenges from a Post-Keynesian perspective. The chapter builds on Victoria Chick’s insights about the relation between institutional development and Keynes’s investment finance theory. We claim that her approach provides a bridge with authors of different orientation, and particularly with Schumpeter’s view of banks as critical actors in fostering transformational investment, or ‘creative destruction’. And this bridge, we submit, may be an extremely useful framework to discuss policies to promote sustainable infrastructure investment
