 The conference held in Turkey/Kocaeli (nearby İstanbul) is the first annual conference of the series of conferences to be organised under the general heading of *International Congress of Political Economy*. Next year's conference might  be on Keynes, Marx and crisis. This is not definit yet. (please see:

Unfortunately Michael Lebowitz will not be able to attend the conference due to his other commitments (publications, conferences etc). He may come to our next year's conference. Neither Samir Amin will  probabily be able to attend the Conference. We have not heart from him for quit a while. So we do not know exactly whether he is going to attend or not. Most probabily not. Michael Perelman is asked to make the opening speech of the Conference on the challenges for political economy of the 21st century. He will be followed by Tülin Öngen (University of Ankara) who will be talking about 'Wich Political Economy?', and Vivienne Brown (International Adam Smith Society/Open University) on Adam Smith. Besides invited speakers, there are around 80 papers to be presented to the Conference. If anyone interested: together with Ismail Siriner I will be presenting a paper on *Adam Smith's Understanding of Human Conditions in the age of "Commercial Society" and UTOPİA*.

With regard to publications: selections of the papers presented to the Conference will probabliy be published in Research in Political Economy (English), in Turkish Journal of Political Economy (English and Turkish) and in Adam Sm
ith Review. The whole Conference papers will be published in a volume in Turkey/Ankara by Dipnot Kitapevi. There are also some international publishers interested in publishing a selection of papers. This stil need to be figured out.

Anybody on the list is very welcome to attend the Conference and some of you may be invited to the next year's Conference on the crisis.

We owe to our list a lot that this Conference was made possible though it may not be abvious at first sight.

Best wishes,

Subject: [OPE] Political Economy for the 21st Century

I was asked to give an opening talk to a conference in Turkey. Michael
Lebowitz, of 21st Century Socialism, will be attending, so I hope that
he will appreciate the title assigned to me. I have dashed off the
beginnings, before I get to Marx. I would appreciate any comments that
you might have.
