    Europe: Economic Crisis and Political Alternatives Mark Blyth & Michael Roberts

    Where is Europe going and what can be done about its economic malaise? The final instalment of our series of lectures ‘Culture and Politics of Crisis’ focuses on the current European political and economic deadlock. As such, it sets the stage for a dialogue between two of the most important political economists of our time: Mark Blyth and Michael Roberts. For Roberts, the European crisis is diagnosed from a Marxist perspective. For Blyth, the analysis is infused by heterodox Keynesian views. Consequently, the two scholars diverge both in terms of situating the main cause of crisis and the main solution to it: for Roberts the emphasis falls on the general fall of the rate of profit affecting capital in our time, with anti-capitalism as the solution. For Blyth the crisis is caused by a lack of demand and investment and the way out is a different kind of capitalism. Between these diverging diagnostics and challenging solutions affecting the global and continental predicament, the fate of the East of Europe will also come in the spotlight: what are the limits of the semi-peripheral condition of this region and what remedies does it permit – Lexit, national so…

  5. MPIfG - Podcasts: Mark Blyth

    The debate over austerity as the appropriate economic policy response to the euro crisis continues. Recent warnings by the IMF regarding extremely large negative multipliers on government spending cuts came on top of increasing political resistance to austerity measures throughout the European periphery and European economic data that continue to disappoint. Austerity advocates cite successes in the Baltic states, but close examination reveals them to have been less than successful. In the face of such evidence, why does the policy continue to, as Keynes put it eighty years ago, “dominate the minds of the governing classes of this generation”? With his look at the intellectual history of austerity as an economic idea as reflected in the writings of Locke, Hume, Smith, Ricardo, Mill, Schumpeter, and Keynes as well as in ordoliberalism, monetarism, public choice theory and other recent approaches Mark Blyth will enable us to answer Keynes’s question.

    Mark Blyth is Professor of International Political Economy and faculty fellow of the Watson Institute for International Studies at Brown University in Providence, USA. He is particularly interested in how uncertainty and randomness impact complex systems, particularly economic systems. He is the author of several books including Great Transformations: Economic Ideas and Institutional Change in the Twentieth Century (2002) and, most recently, Austerity: The History of a Dangerous Idea (2013), which questions the return to prominence of financial orthodoxy following the global financial crisis.

    Profits are privatized while losses are socialized. How we got here, and how we can get out of this situation.

    Mark Blyth: I was born in Dundee, Scotland, in 1967. I grew up in relative poverty, in a very real sense a “welfare kid”. Today I’m a professor at an Ivy League university in the USA. Probabilistically speaking, I am as an extreme example of intra-generational social mobility as you can find anywhere. My Academic Credentials I received my PhD in political science from Columbia University in 1999 and taught at the Johns Hopkins University from 1997 until 2009. Since then, I have been Professor of International Political Economy in the Department of Political Science at Brown University and a Faculty Fellow at Brown’s Watson Institute for International Studies.

    My research interests lie in the field of international political economy. More specifically, my research trespasses several fields and aims to be as interdisciplinary as possible, drawing from political science, economics, sociology, complexity theory, and evolutionary theory. My work falls into several related areas: the politics of ideas, how institutions change, political parties, and the politics…
