Eichner's classic A Guide to Post-Keynesian Economics (1978) is still seen as the definitive staging post for those wishing to familiarise themselves with the Post-Keynesian School. This book brings the story up-to-date. Of all the subgroups within heterodox economics, Post-Keynesianism has provided the most convincing alternative to mainstream theory. The main representatives of the Post-Keynesianism from both sides of the Atlantic are represented here, including Paul Davidson, Geoff Harcourt and Sheila Dow.The distribution of income has also been a central focus of Post Keynesian economics. ... At a theoretical level we still have much to do in order to understand how individual decision makers and the system itself respond to the uncertain environment. ... John King follows on from Eileen Appelbauma#39;s (1979) excellent chapter on the labor market in the first Guide, with an essay on labor and unemployment.
