Are there any faculty who I could suggest as supervisors for this guy.

Dr. Cockshott,

Last semester I started the process of trying to apply to graduate school
in the United States for a mathematics Ph.D. I haven't been accepted to
any schools yet and it's looking more and more likely that I'm not going
to be. So I'm trying to prepare myself for going through the whole thing
again this coming fall. The problem is that I've found little in my
undergraduate maths study that I found really interesting or compelling,
other than the application of math to economic planning, like in your
work. So I thought that I might try to apply to Ph.D programs for
economics instead. Since my interests lie well outside mainstream
economics, I'm not sure where to begin looking for advisors. Do you know
of anyone else who works academically in heterodox economics in the U.S.?
I'd really be interested in someone who entirely rejects marginalism and
works from classical theory, like the labor theory of value.
