This contribution examines recent developments in post-Keynesian macroeconomics teaching through an analysis of five textbooks: Blecker and Setterfield (2019), Hein (2014; 2023), and Lavoie (2014; 2022). The focus is on Hein’s latest book, Macroeconomics after Kalecki and Keynes (2023), which aims to provide a comprehensive and teachable post-Keynesian macroeconomic model, by covering topics such as effective demand, policy coordination, distribution and growth, finance-dominated capitalism, and ecological constraints. The review discusses Hein’s textbook in a comparative way, highlighting points of strength and aspects that should be explored further, particularly (but not related to) the field of climate change and environmental constraints to growth. Overall, it is argued that Hein's book contributes to the literature on post-Keynesian economics and provides a valuable resource for undergraduate and graduate students in the field.

Abstract

This contribution examines recent developments in post-Keynesian macroeconomics teaching through an analysis of five textbooks: Blecker and Setterfield (2019), Hein (2014; 2023), and Lavoie (2014; 2022). The focus is on Hein’s latest book, Macroeconomics after Kalecki and Keynes (2023), which aims to provide a comprehensive and teachable post-Keynesian macroeconomic model, by covering topics such as effective demand, policy coordination, distribution and growth, finance-dominated capitalism, and ecological constraints. The review discusses Hein’s textbook in a comparative way, highlighting points of strength and aspects that should be explored further, particularly (but not related to) the field of climate change and environmental constraints to growth. Overall, it is argued that Hein's book contributes to the literature on post-Keynesian economics and provides a valuable resource for undergraduate and graduate students in the field.
