Introduction: Minsky on Money, Banking and Finance
Dimitri Papadimitriou and
L. Randall Wray
Chapter 1 in The Elgar Companion to Hyman Minsky, 2010 from Edward Elgar Publishing
This Companion provides a timely and engaging treatment of Hyman Minsky’s approach to economics, which is enjoying a renewed appreciation because of its prescient analysis of the slow but sure transformation of the capitalist economy in the post-war period. Many have called the global financial crisis that began in the United States in 2007 a ‘Minsky crisis’, and these original contributions demonstrate precisely why both academic economists as well as policymakers have turned to Minsky for guidance. The book brings together the foremost Minsky scholars to provide a comprehensive overview of his approach, with extensions to bring the analysis up to date.
