Top ten posts of 2017

It is always interesting to see what topics attract the most interest here. So from one to ten, here are the most viewed posts on this blog in 2017, from those published during the last twelve months:

  1. Modern Monetary Theory and inflation – Anwar Shaikh’s critique
  2. Michael Hudson on Modern Monetary Theory
  3. Karl Marx on utility
  4. Free-market policies rarely make poor countries rich (Ha-Joon Chang’s Thing 7)
  5. Minsky on stagflation and the limits to state intervention
  6. Anwar Shaikh’s Classical theory of wages and unemployment
  7. Stiglitz on inequality and growth
  8. Ha-Joon Chang on inequality and capabilities
  9. Investment-savings, global imbalances and crisis: the economics of Michael Pettis
  10. Moseley’s macro-monetary Marx – a review and partial critique

All of the above were posted in 2017. However, the four most viewed posts of the year were published in previous years and the top two far outstripped the others. Here are the links:

  1. Some macroeconomic paradoxes: part 1
  2. Marx’s labour theory of value and exploitation under capitalism
  3. Keynes on inequality
  4. Holistic theory and political economy

Thanks to all my readers for your interest last year. Wishing you a happy 2018.
