Birmingham City University, Birmingham, 31st March 2016

This series comprises six seminars which are scheduled to take place at the Open University (London), Nottingham Business School, Leeds University Business School and Birmingham City University. Its aim is to explore factor income distribution from a plurality of perspectives, including heterodox approaches (such as post-Keynesianism, Kaleckian and radical economics), as well as mainstream analyses. The gender lens of feminist economics will be also considered, together with institutional perspectives, and contributions from other disciplines. The third seminar is scheduled to take place on the 31st March and participants from government, industry and the university sector are invited to attend. PhD students are especially welcome.
