GEAR in the beautiful Seville

Last March 26, the GEAR member Luis Antonio López, was invited by the “Cátedra de Economía de la Energía y del Medio Ambiente” to present the conference entitled “Principales nodos de CO2 asociados al comercio internacional entre China y el resto del mundo” in the framework of the XII Jornada de Econonía y Medio Ambiente” at the Faculty of Economics and Business Sciences, University of Seville.

Thanks for the invitation to our colleagues from the Department of “Economic Analysis and Political Economics” and the Cátedra de Economía de la Energía y del Medio Ambiente.

We hope you have enjoyed the conference!

Seminar and visit: Joanilio Teixeira (University of Brasilia, Brazil)

In the last two months, Joanilio Teixeira, Emeritus Professor at University of Brasilia, Brazil, has visited the Faculty of Business and Economics. Joanilio research is focused on the study of Heterodox Macroeconomics.

Last February 25th, Joanilio presented, in the framework of the Macroeconomics Seminar, the conference entitled “Controversies in Heterodox Macroeconomics: Post-Keynesians Vs. Kaleckians”.

You’ll always succeed if you start citing Bertolt Brecht: “The aim of science is not to open the door to infinite wisdom, but to set a limit to infinite error”, and ending citing Bhaduri “Nothing is more destructive to a political system that the lack of hope for a better future”, as Joanilio did. In between, the Kaleckian vision of the economy, seasoned with an incredible carreer, really close to some of the big names of the economy, was unraveled.

At the same seminar, our team member Óscar Dejuan presented the paper “Kaldor’s theories of distribution” published in Revista de Economía Crítica.

Thank you Joanilio for the visit and for the presentation.

We hope to see you soon again!
