Care, Job Guarantee, and Revisiting “Socialization of Investment”: Insights from Institutional Economics

Zdravka Todorova

No PKWP2216, Working Papers from Post Keynesian Economics Society (PKES)

Abstract: The article discusses commitment to full employment in light of institutional theory and offers a renewed examination of Keynes’s "socialization of investment" concept. The discussion builds on Veblen's theory of human development, predation, and capitalism. It highlights contemporary institutional inquiry in a discussion of ongoing issues of care and social disparities. Based on this, the article formulates problems for a broader inquiry about socialization of investment. The article provides insights about Job Guarantee based on original institutional economics concepts.
