Interview with Ha-Joon Chang

An interesting interview with Ha-Joon Chang on his book 23 Things They Don't Tell You about Capitalism (Penguin, London, 2011).


  1. I enjoyed the book being discussed here.

    On a different topic entirely... Would you be willing to post here a bibliography for this post of mine?

    1. "Would you be willing to post here a bibliography for this post of mine?"

      I am not familiar with the unpublished work of Paolo Sylos Labini you refer to in the post, but I suppose my starting point would be King's History of Post Keynesian Economics since 1936, pp. 203-220.

      There's a whole chapter there called "Keynes, Kalecki: Sraffa: coherence?", which looks at the place of Sraffianism within Post Keynesianism, the compatibility of it with Kalecki and the Cambridge and American Post Keynesians, along with criticism of Sraffa.

      The bibliography King provides is pretty extensive, I think, though I am not sure if it is exactly what you need.

      I could write up a post with basic bibliography, since, funnily enough, I was planning something along these lines at some stage!

  2. There are some articles by Fred Lee on the topic. Fred Lee is actually a staunch Sraffian. At least, that was the impression I got when I talked with him.
