34th Annual Meeting of the Association for Institutional Thought (AFIT)
AFIT’s 34th annual meeting is held in conjunction with the 55th Annual Conference of the Western Social Science Association (WSSA). Theme of the Denver 2013 Conference: “Advancing our Heterodox Tradition: Promoting Evolutionary and Institutional Thinking” The conference organizer seeks paper proposals, and even whole sessions that consider theoretical topics that engage both institutional as well as other approaches in economics. This could include exploring topics in History of Economic Thought, especially from a heterodox perspective, that, for example, considers ideas of Thorstein Veblen and other major contributors to our thought tradition. A broad set of topics could also include: advancing heterodox microeconomics; promoting the importance of “meso;” combining institutional with post Keynesian inquiry. Comparative Economic Systems, Economic Development, and Globalization Studies could be relied upon for practical inquires into countries and some of their challenges, especially related to the ongoing crisis. In addition, proposals dealing with philosophy and also biography, as well a topics not considered herein, certainly interest this conference organizer. AFIT likewise takes a special interest panels that consider pluralism and economic education.
