The IIPPE Financialisation Working Group is pleased to announce four more additions to their series of Financialisation Working Papers by Ivan Lesay, Avgitidou Athina, G.C. Harcourt and Jan Toporowski.
The IIPPE Financialisation Working Papers series offers PhD students and young researchers the opportunity to have their papers reviewed by two academics who are working in their field of research. This process gives young researchers the chance to gain valuable feedback on their work and offers the possibility of making their work visible to a wider audience and helping to prepare it for publication. Avgitidou and Ivan's papers on Financial crisis: The myth of free market ideology and current regulatory reforms and How Fit For Development Is The European Investment Bank Development Economics Discourse Analysis were reviewed by one junior and one senior academic and recommended for publication as working papers.
Despite the focus on promoting and supporting young researchers’ work, we are particularly happy to also announce the publication of G.C. Harcourt’s valedictory lecture The Crisis in Mainstream Economics. The lecture, which was given on the 12th of May at the School of Oriental and African Studies (SOAS), is also available as a Audio File on the IIPPE Financialisation Working Group Web Site. Last but not least, Jan Toporowski has submitted his provocative paper on Marx’s Grundrisse And The Monetary Business Cycle, which was presented at the 1st IIPPE conference in Crete in September 2010.
If you are interested in submitting your work for review and publication as an IIPPE Financialisation Working Paper please send your paper to firstname.lastname@example.org and email@example.com. We particularly encourage submission from PHD students and young researchers who are preparing their work for an academic publication and are interested in feedback and advice from academics in their fields. If you have a preference for a potential reviewer please indicate so. A list of current reviewers can be found on the IIPPE Financialisation Working Group web-site. Alternatively, if you are aware of an academic within IIPPE who you feel would be more suitable to referee your paper, please indicate this as well and we will try to accommodate.
In a similar vein, we would also appreciate any academics within and outside IIPPE, who have some interest in financial topics and who would be interested in acting as referees to get in contact with us. The workload is minimal (maximum a paper a year), but a greater pool of referees would allow us to match the paper with the best expertise in the area and would be a great support to young researchers.
