Financial Keynesianism And Market Instability

 The Economic Legacy of Hyman Minsky,
 Volume I

 Edited by Riccardo Bellofiore, Professor of
 Economics and Piero Ferri, Professor of
 Economics, University of Bergamo, Italy

 During his lifetime Hyman Minsky made a seminal contribution to the
development of
 financial Keynesianism. In this book, leading academics celebrate his work
and explore his
 economic legacy.

 Special attention is paid to his work on contemporary economic method, the
Great
 Depression, the European single currency and the global financial system
and recent
 banking and financial crises - in particular the crisis in Asia. An
attempt is made to
 categorise Minsky's brand of post Keynesianism and to compare his work
with the
 Keynesian and Marxian traditions.

Financial Fragility And Investment In The Capitalist Economy

 The Economic Legacy of Hyman Minsky,
 Volume II

 Edited by Riccardo Bellofiore, Professor of
 Economics and Piero Ferri, Professor of
 Economics, University of Bergamo, Italy

 Hyman Minsky is renowned for his theoretical and empirical investigation
of the capitalist
 economy. In this book, a distinguished list of contributors provides an
authoritative account
 of his contribution to the analysis of capitalism and, more particularly,
to the fields of
 monetary and post Keynesian economics.

 The authors first provide an introduction to Hyman Minsky's economic
legacy before going
 on to discuss his role in analysing the macroeconomy, monetary policy and
instability. In
 detail, they consider the structural instability of a sophisticated market
economy, the
 NAIRU, Minsky's financial fragility hypothesis, his business cycle theory,
his investment
 theory and debt inflation.
