Hi Dave Z:
True=2C but these topics also tend to be pitched at a pretty high level of =
Compared to=2C let's say=2C the 1970s you can see less research and debates=
 on international
political economy (including theories of trade and imperialism) and the sta=
te (including
theories of public finance - although there wasn't much writing on that in =
 the 70s either).
OTOH=2C there is more writing and research on monetary theory and policy - =
and that's a=20
good thing given what had been a traditional 'productivist' emphasis by man=
y Marxists which
downplayed the role of money. There has also been Marxian research on polit=
ical economy
in other disciplines than economics and that should be recognized=2C e.g. g=
and accounting.
