  • Alternative interpretations of a stateless currency crisis
    • Authors: Cesaratto S.
      Pages: 977 - 998
      Abstract: A number of economists warned that a political union was a prerequisite for a viable currency union. This paper disputes the feasibility of such a political union. A fully fledged federal union, which would likely please peripheral Europe, is impracticable since it implies a degree of fiscal solidarity that does not exist. A Hayekian minimal federal state, which would appeal to core Europe, would be refused by peripheral members, since residual fiscal sovereignty would be surrendered without any clear positive economic and social return. Even an intermediate solution based on coordinated Keynesian policies would be unfeasible, since it would be at odds with German ‘monetary mercantilism’. The euro area is thus trapped between equally unfeasible political perspectives. In this bleak context, austerity policies are mainly explained by the necessity to readdress the euro area balance-of-payments crisis. This crisis presents striking similarities to traditional financial crises in emerging economies associated with fixed exchange regimes. Therefore, the delayed response of the European Central Bank (ECB) to the sovereign debt crisis cannot be seen as the culprit of the euro area crisis. The ECB’s monetary refinancing mechanisms, Target 2 and the ECB’s belated Outright Monetary Transactions intervention impeded a blow-up of the currency union, but could not solve its deep causes. The current combination of austerity policies and moderate ECB intervention aims to rebalance intra-eurozone foreign accounts and to force competitive deflation strategy.

  • Is the end of fiscal austerity feasible in Spain' An alternative plan
           to the current Stability Programme (2015–2018)
    • Authors: Uxó J; Álvarez I.
      Pages: 999 - 1020
      Abstract: The Spanish authorities have implemented strongly restrictive fiscal policies with a negative impact on GDP and employment, especially during the recession of 2011–2013. This paper shows that the end of fiscal austerity is feasible for Spain. Adopting a ‘functional finance’ approach to fiscal policy and making a (partial) use of the idea of Balanced Budget Expansion, we present an alternative fiscal policy for the years 2016–2018 which is not focused on deficit reduction, but on employment creation and on the development of social and structural policies aimed at a real transformation of the Spanish economy. The two main components of this plan are a progressive fiscal reform to increase public revenue over GDP, and a simultaneous increase in the ratio of public expenditure over GDP. With the aid of a three-equation model, this paper proves that an alternative plan to austerity can be not only expansionary but also fully compatible with fiscal sustainability. The choice, then, lies between prioritising either the rate at which unemployment is reduced or at which public deficit is reduced.

  • The price of an apology: justice, compensation and rectification
    • Authors: O’Neill J.
      Pages: 1043 - 1059
      Abstract: Questions about monetary compensation for environmental damage have been at the centre of debates on the defensibility of the monetary valuation of environmental goods. In conflicts about environmental justice, offers of monetary compensations for environmental damage can elicit apparently inconsistent responses. On the one hand, offers of monetary compensation for future environmentally harmful activity are the object of protests by those affected who claim that the wrongs to be committed are not open to monetary compensation. On the other hand, failures of compensation for environmental harms done in the past are regarded as a major injustice. This paper argues that these two responses are consistent. It rejects a standard economic view that backward- and forward-looking cases should be treated symmetrically since in each case a level of compensation should be computed that leaves the well-being of actually or potentially affected agents at least as high with the adverse change as it would have been without it. It shows this understanding of compensation is mistaken in both backward- and forward-looking cases. Monetary damages in the legal context are quite consistent with scepticism about monetary valuation of environmental and social goods and harms.

      Abstract: The prevailing theories of the firm acknowledge the importance of trust and loyalty but neglect such behaviour in the substance of their analyses. The present paper unravels this paradox by drawing on Niklas Luhmann’s ground-breaking insight that the complexity-reducing function of social systems leads them to neglect their critical environmental dependencies, thereby compromising their own sustainability. If the firm is conceived as a social system, Luhmann’s theory implies that the neglect of social behaviour by the predominant theories of the firm can be explained as reflecting the neglect of society by actual firms. This argument promises to not only furnish the theory of the firm with a concern for sustainability, but also render it more amenable to unconventional institutions, such as cooperatives and non-profit organisations, that help compensate for the damage inflicted by conventional firms on the social environment.

  • Ubuntu and social capital: a strong relationship and a possible instrument
           of socio-economic development
    • Authors: Migheli M.
      Pages: 1213 - 1235
      Abstract: I examine the interrelationships between social capital and Ubuntu, an African social philosophy necessarily embedding the existence of an individual in that of the society. Social capital—the sum of the interpersonal links and civic participation of a person—has been proven to be essential in promoting both social and economic development. The strong link existing between Ubuntu and social capital shows the potential value of the former for the socio-economic development of the sub-Saharan populations. Indeed, the African governments should promote Ubuntu as a valuable instrument to fight poverty and conflicts.

  • Forecasting errors by the Troika in the economic adjustment programme for
           Portugal
    • Authors: do Amaral J; Lopes J.
      Pages: 1021 - 1041
      Abstract: This article presents an evaluation of the economic adjustment programme negotiated between the Portuguese government and the Troika (European Commission, ECB and IMF) in May 2011, using an assessment that is different from the usual studies. Instead of a comparison between the actual results and the proposed targets, an evaluation of the quality of the programme forecast is made, showing that errors could have been avoided if the productive (input–output) structure of the economy and also the unemployment rate/external deficit trade-off had been taken into account. The main conclusion of this assessment is that a large underestimation of the unemployment rate was made, amounting to about four percentage points, which illustrates the technical flaw of this adjustment programme and the huge economic and social costs it unnecessarily caused. The methodology used can easily be replicated for assessing other similar programmes, such those applied in Greece, Ireland and Cyprus.

  • Reviving demand-pull perspectives: The effect of demand uncertainty and
           stagnancy on R&D strategy
    • Authors: García-Quevedo J; Pellegrino G, Savona M.
      Pages: 1087 - 1122
      Abstract: This paper looks at the effects of demand uncertainty and stagnancy on firms’ decisions to engage in R&D activities and the amount of financial effort devoted to these. The paper provides a number of contributions to the innovation literature: first, it adds to the revived debate on demand-pull perspectives in innovation studies by examining demand-related (lack of) incentives to invest in innovation. Second, it complements the literature on barriers to innovation by focusing on demand-related obstacles rather than the more frequently explored financial barriers. Third, it analyses whether experiencing demand barriers is a sector-specific feature. Firms active in high- or low-tech manufacturing or in knowledge-intensive or low-tech services might be more or less dependent on demand conditions when deciding to perform R&D. We find that uncertain demand and lack of demand are perceived as two quite distinct barriers. While the perception of a lack of demand has a marked negative impact not only on the amount of investment in R&D but also the likelihood of firms to engage in R&D activities, demand uncertainty seems, on the contrary, to represent an incentive to spend more in R&D, although only in low-tech sectors. We interpret this evidence in terms of the specific phase of the innovation cycle in which decisions to invest in R&D are taken. Sectoral affiliation seems to be playing a role only for demand uncertainty, supporting the conjecture that positive expectations on the presence of adequate market demand are a necessary condition to invest in R&D.

  • Towards an economics of well-being
    • Authors: McGregor J; Pouw N.
      Pages: 1123 - 1142
      Abstract: There is growing concern that presently dominant frameworks in economics no longer provide a way of adequately addressing and analysing the problems of today’s globalising and rapidly changing world. This article makes a number of fundamental proposals about how we might reframe economics to move it towards a clearer focus on human well-being. It develops arguments for a change in the basic ontological proposition and for the need to see ‘the economy’ as an instituted process of resource allocation. From this viewpoint, economics is then the study of resource allocation decisions and processes and the forces that guide these: from a human perspective it is about understanding who gets what, under what conditions and why' The paper argues that a pluralist approach to understanding the economy is necessary for political, analytical and technical reasons. Drawing on a range of contributions to heterodox economics, the paper argues that if we are to understand current crises and challenges, then our understanding of resource allocation in society must have a broader scope than is present in mainstream economics; it proposes a rethinking of economic agency and provides a critique of rational behaviour that is founded in shifting the emphasis from a narrow conception of welfare to well-being. Acknowledging human well-being as a multidimensional concept, the relationship between the well-being of the person and the collective is reconsidered and the methodological implications for the issue of aggregation are discussed. The article seeks to serve as a point of departure for formulating new research questions, exploring the relationships between human well-being and economic development and analysing economic behaviour and interactions in such a way as to bring us closer to peoples’ realities on the ground.

  • Karl Popper and the methodologists of economics
    • Authors: Thomas R.
      Pages: 1143 - 1160
      Abstract: This article chronicles the difficulties that methodologists of economics have had in introducing Karl Popper’s philosophy to their fellow economists. It presents some general reasons for the problem before specifically examining the proposition that a sound appreciation of Popper’s doctrines cannot be attained from simply studying the doctrines themselves. What it also requires is an understanding of the problem situation that the doctrines sought to address. This is illustrated through an examination of the way methodologists have grasped, or failed to grasp, the development of Popper’s own thought about the problem of demarcating empirical science from non-science and the related problem of whether the limits of empirical science coincide with the limits of arguability. The article demonstrates that a neglect of these considerations has produced confusion in the literature, both in the way that Popper’s philosophy has been presented and in the way in which its contemporary relevance has been assessed.

  • Max Weber within the Methodenstreit
    • Authors: Maclachlan F.
      Pages: 1161 - 1175
      Abstract: Max Weber’s position with regard to the Methodenstreit, the dispute between the Austrians and the historical school over the status of axiomatic-deductive theory within economics, is investigated. I find that while there was much in Carl Menger’s economics with which Weber agreed, his achievement was to provide an improved foundation for the historicist approach. I discuss the important differences between Weber’s approach and the methodology advocated by Ludwig von Mises, the central figure in the later Austrian school. I argue that Weber broadened the scope for economics by integrating the empirical facts of history and the contemporary world, while Mises narrowed it by attempting to establish an economics purified of contingent empirical reality. Finally, I discuss Mises’ influence on Lionel Robbins and Robbins’ contribution to the eclipse of Weber’s methodological insights.

  • Scitovsky meets Sen: endogenising the dynamics of capability
    • Authors: Pugno M.
      Pages: 1177 - 1196
      Abstract: Sen’s ‘capability approach’ is especially focused on human development as freedom from deprivations, while Scitovsky’s The Joyless Economy is focused on how people can expand their internal capability endogenously by enjoying learning as a socially embedded process. This paper uses the complementarity between the two authors to build a comprehensive dynamic approach to people’s ‘functionings and capabilities’. Different groups of ‘functionings’ are thus characterised by their different patterns of development in interaction with the resources available and the social context. As a result, Sen’s problems of evaluating ‘functionings’ and measuring ‘capability’ can be alleviated; harmful functionings can be predicted; children’s welfare can be better evaluated; and Sen’s definitions of ‘capability’, ‘agency’ and ‘well-being’ can be refined.

  • Market sociality: Mirowski, Shiller and the tension between mimetic and
           anti-mimetic market features
    • Authors: Borch C; Lange A.
      Pages: 1197 - 1212
      Abstract: This article presents a critical systematic discussion of Shiller’s writings from the late 1970s to the present, as well as an examination of the social-psychological assumptions on which his work is built. We argue that Shiller’s work displays a tension between mimetic and anti-mimetic tendencies, i.e. between understanding financial markets as captured by fads and fashions (mimesis), and at the same time understanding such markets on the basis of a notion of homo economicus (an essentially anti-mimetic figure). Identifying that tension not only sheds novel light on Shiller’s work, but also allows us to critically discuss Mirowski’s negative appraisal of Shiller’s behavioural finance programme. Further, we argue that the mimetic/anti-mimetic tension in Shiller’s work can equally be identified in a broader range of theories about financial markets, and that attending to it therefore opens up new lines of inquiry beyond behavioural finance.

  • Wealth and capital: a critique of Piketty’s conceptualisation of
           return on capital
    • Authors: Mihalyi P; Szelényi I.
      Pages: 1237 - 1247
      Abstract: The paper is focused on the importance of a precise theoretical differentiation between wealth and capital on the one hand, and profits and rents on the other. The work is inspired by our partial agreement with and partial criticism of Thomas Piketty’s Capital in the Twenty-First Century. We agree with him that inequalities are growing and we share his view that this is a major threat to the legitimacy of the liberal order both at the national and the international level. At the same time, we are deeply sceptical about his central explanation, namely that excessive growth of profits (r) is the main reason for inequalities which in turn slow growth (g) and generate popular dissatisfaction in the long run. We show that the confusion of profit and rent, capital and wealth, prevents Piketty to prove the r > g formula, because his computed values for r are statistical artefacts.
