Credit, Money and Crises in Post-Keynesian Economics

Edited by Louis-Philippe Rochon and Hassan Bougrine

In this volume, Louis-Philippe Rochon and Hassan Bougrine bring together key post-Keynesian voices in an effort to push the boundaries of our understanding of banks, central banking, monetary policy and endogenous money. Issues such as interest rates, income distribution, stagnation and crises – both theoretical and empirical – are woven together and analysed by the many contributors to shed new light on them. The result is an alternative analysis of contemporary monetary economies, and the policies that are so needed to address the problems of today.

Chapter 13: Stagnation and crisis: understanding credit flows in Latin America from a circuitist perspective

Eugenia Correa and Wesley C. Marshall


Mario Seccareccia and Marc Lavoie have for decades proven to be careful and demanding researchers. Seccareccia is mostly known for his contributions to the theoretical debate on monetary policy, the theory of the monetary circuit and the history of economic thought, and has become a leading critical voice on the role of the state and banks in the evolution and current functioning of monetary economies of production. Seccareccia’s many years of dedication to the International Journal of Political Economy have exposed him to a great diversity of ideas, and his sound judgment has made him a reliable guide in a wide range of academic issues. In many of the major controversies that have at times divided the thinking of heterodox economists, Seccareccia has consistently been a voice of balanced reason, while at the same time offering staunch rebukes for misled macroeconomic policy. In particular, he took on essential issues such as austerity (Seccareccia, 1996), as well as its supporting economic methodology, particularly the use of the IS-LM model (Seccareccia and Lavoie, 2015) that has led mainstream economics down as a slippery path. Within Post-Keynesian debates, Seccareccia has nicely addressed the issue of ‘post-Keynesian fundism’ (Seccareccia, 1996), and the role of taxation in the monetary circuit, among others.
