The latest  issue of the URPE Newsletter includes:

The late Fredrick S. Lee's and Bruce Cronin's Handbook of Research Methods and Applications in Heterodox Economics has just been published by Elgar. Despite the important critiques of the mainstream offered by heterodox economics, the dominant method remains econometrics. This major new Handbook provides an invaluable introduction to a range of alternative research methods better suited for analysing the social data prominent in heterodox research projects, including survey, historical, ethnographic, experimental, and mixed approaches, together with factor, cluster, complex, and social network analytics. Introductions to each method are complemented by descriptions of applications in practice. (May 19. 2016)

Mark Weisbrot.'s  Failed: What the "Experts" Got Wrong about the Global Economy has been published by the Oxford University Press. The book analyzes long-term economic failures, from the Eurozone to developing countries, shows how political agendas are often at the root of long-term economic failures and - as in the Eurozone - can prolong financial crises unnecessarily, and examines why the IMF has lost most of its influence in middle-income countries over the past decade and a half.

Jonathan Levin and Michael Zweig have produced a short film Light from Darkness on the new Iraqi labor law. See the power of international labor solidarity and a united Iraqi labor movement as they win passage of an historic labor law in the Iraqi parliament. It is a true victory in the most difficult circumstances, in Iraq and for working people everywhere. See the video. (May 3, 2016) See Member Activities page for more.
