May 11, 2023 - May 13, 2023

A workshop celebrating the contributions and work of Victoria Chick and Geoff Harcourt is taking place on the 11, 12 and 13 of May 2023 in Goldsmiths, University of London.
This event celebrates the many and diverse contributions that Victoria Chick (1936-2023) and Geoffrey Colin Harcourt (1931-2021) brought to the economics community over their lives. They were both central pillars of the Keynesian and later Post-Keynesian school of thought from its very beginning, and their contributions defined the scope and outlook that this approach to economics came to represent. This event intends to honor their work and many years of service to the community.
We start on the evening of the 11nth of May (6:00-7:30) with a book launch for the 50th anniversary edition of Harcourt’s Some Cambridge Controversies in the Theory of Capital. Avi Cohen will give a talk on putting together the 50th anniversary edition followed by a panel discussion. Details for the event can be found here.
The programme for the 2-day workshop on the 12th and 13th of May can be found online here On Friday there are sessions on Money, Banking and Finance; History, Methodology and Pluralism and Capital, Growth and Macroeconomic Behavior, followed by a Memorial Lecture titled V. Chick and G.C. Harcourt: economics as a moral science by Sheila Dow. On Saturday there are two panels focusing on the work and contributions of Victoria Chick and Geoff Harcourt.
No registration for the event is needed.
