I count among my intellectual influences a large number of economists, some of whom are listed below. Many are from what is broadly termed the Post-Keynesian school, and there are some Marxists and development economists. I don’t consider myself a socialist and I remain open-minded about what sort of capitalism is possible that combines economic efficiency, social justice and individual liberty. I regard both Paul Ormerod and Michael Pettis as quite flexible politically. Click on the names to read more about them.
