 Theme: Social Economics Perspectives on Income Inequality

The Great Recession and its aftermath focused the attention of economists on income inequality, wage stagnation and the growing concentration of wealth. But within a social economics framework income inequality should be understood as more than a narrow market-based phenomenon. It also entails the investigation of social norms and practices, systems of provisioning, power relations, gender and racial biases, ethical commitments and principles of social justice.  

We invite papers on all topics of relevance to social economics including case studies, empirical analyses, theoretical essays or pedagogical explorations. In addition, we also welcome proposals for papers that illuminate our understanding of income inequality from a social economics perspective.

Please submit a copy of the paper title and abstract (up to 250 words) to Bruce Pietrykowski, Association for Social Economics Midwest Regional Director: bpie@umich.edu no later than October 2, 2014.
