Essays in Honour of Sam Aaronovitch. Studi e Note di Economia15 3, pp Review of Keynesian Economics4 2, pp What made you choose to write a biography of Michal Kalecki? Revue d’economie financiere67pp After that I read everything that I could find by him. Pioneers of Financial Economics. Review of Political Economy27 1, pp Academic economics is further rendered insubstantial by the undue pressure on academics to publish in particular journals favouring trivial technical solutions to puzzles of dubious significance.
It was only during the last thirteen years of his life that he worked in a university and even then this was on sufferance on the part of the university, since he had no university degree. What do you see as his ajn contributions to economics?
All this is expounded in a carefully reasoned analysis rather than accusations of injustice and bad faith. This is an approach to economics wholly different to the standard general equilibrium theory that has prevailed since the end of the nineteenth century. Toporowski, Jan ‘Regulating for stability: Bill Browder Red Notice: The Revolution in Lodz and the turbulence in that city right up into the s brought home to him that capitalism is not just about the distribution of income and toprowski allocation of resources.
Rendezvous in CambridgePalgrave Macmillan, July The macroeconomics taught at the time and still today was all about the general equilibrium that is supposed to be immanent in the economy.
In their interest rate and credit policies, central bankers delude themselves that they control the business cycle, when it is the business cycle that controls central bankers. Review of Political Economy. Toporowski, Jan Michal Kalecki: What determines the equilibrium in such an economy is the level of investment. Bonizzi, Bruno and Toporowski, Jan ‘Developing and emerging countries as finance providers: Cambridge Journal of Economics32 5, pp Toporowski, Jan and Szymborska, Hannah ‘”Dr.
Journal of Economic Methodology14 1, pp So he did not really engage with the ideas of other economists, or the history of economic thought, beyond what he could use for his own analysis. Unemployment and excess capacity is the natural state of capitalist economies, along with poverty and the more or less blatant autocracy of business interests. So much of his most original ideas came from thinking through the practical knowledge that he acquired as an engineer, as a business journalist, credit investigator, and an avid follower of business practices.
First of all he stands out for his insistence that, in a capitalist economy, it is capitalist firms that determine the character and dynamics of the system, with lesser possibilities available to governments and households than is attributed to them by most current economic theory.
Ruziev, Kobil and Perdikis, Nicholas, eds. Secondly, most core teaching in economics is from textbooks that trivialise economics and serve up for our students stews into which bleeding chunks, hacked from the serious theoretical constructions of our great economists, have been thrown with little regard for consistency or significance.
The kind of analysis of the firm that he gave us can give much improved insights into our current predicaments: Journal of Post Keynesian Economics39 4, pp But too little of these attitudes are informed by the kind of hard practical knowledge that Kalecki had.
For many years Kalecki had a huge following in Cambridge and Oxford, thanks to the efforts of his friend Joan Robinson. Papadimitriou, Dimitri and Gennaro, Zezza, eds.
Routledge International Studies in Money and Banking. The circulation of money is determined by business investment, and not by credit policy. This inefficiency and waste is epitomised in the business cycle, in which full employment is only obtained, if at all, at the peak of the boom, and then only temporarily. Toporowski, Jan ‘Minsky’s ‘induced investment and business cycles”.
For Kalecki, money and monetary policy were endogenous to the business cycle. Jan Toporowski has recently published Volume 1 of a biography of Michal Kalecki.
Revista de Tooorowski Mundial46pp Toporowski, Jan and Levy Orlik, N. Keynes and Kalecki had one fundamental idea in common. He had a practical knowledge of statistics, rather than the firm grasp of statistical theory that would have been necessary for this.

He agreed to this interview with the WEA Newsletter. For Kalecki economic dynamics meant the business cycle, in which the circular flow of income generates cumulative changes from one time period to the next. This is that a free market capitalist economy cannot be brought into an efficient, full employment, equilibrium by price and wage jwn.
By contrast, Keynes never properly put aside the idea, inherent in his earlier work, that the business cycle can be managed somehow by monetary policy. If investment is too low, then there will be involuntary unemployment. Toporowwski reflections in times of uncertainty.
