SELECT BIBLIOGRAPHY on global Keynesianism
by Gernot Köhler, December 2002

 - includes books, articles, and occasional references in which the
expressions "global Keynesianism", "international Keynesianism", or similar

Keynes, J.M. (1931), testifying before a MacMillan committe (Britain)

Quote: "It is not easy to see how we can expect a revival in our foreign
trade ... by any other means than through revival of world demand. To meet
the immediate problems, arising out of the world slump, a policy intended to
direct increased purchasing power into the right channels, both at home and
abroad, ... would ... be much wiser ... than a policy of trying to cut our
costs faster than the rest of the world can cut theirs." (quoted from
Moggridge, Donald (ed.) (1981) The Collected Writings of John Maynard
Keynes. London, UK: MacMillan Press. Volume XX (1981) , p.291)

The Brandt Report is a good example."

            Quote: "The concepts of growth management and sustainable
development have emerged as responses to the global environmental crisis.
For these to be successful, the future world economic system must be based
on a kind of global ecological Keynesianism, with a significant social
direction of capital flows, demand management and technological choices."

            Quote: "Global Keynesianism attempts to adapt the Keynesian
vision to new conditions and to develop prescriptions from a Keynesian
standpoint that can accelerate economic growth and development in the
emerging economy. As such it confronts three problems: the problem of scale,
the problem of demand, and the problem of change."

restructuring drastically reorganized declining light-industries in global
cities like New York, creating regional-capitalist command centers like San
Juan, within the context of the long-term slump in the world-systemic cycle
of accumulation from the 1970s to the 1990s (i.e., the decline of Global
Keynesianism and the rise of Global Neoliberalism)."
