A Brighter Future: Improving the Standard of Living Now and for the Next Generation with Daphne T. Greenwood,

M.E. Sharpe, 2014.


Advanced Praise


“In this pathbreaking volume, Ric Holt and Daphne Greenwood have enlisted an extremely talented group of scholars to share their thinking

about how we might turn things around. Readers who study the papers will come away with a renewed sense of optimism. Collectively, their

authors make a compelling case that we can well afford what needs to be done … Read this volume carefully, and be stimulated to launch some

intelligent discussion of your own. From there, what happens is anyone’s guess.” - From the Foreword by Robert H. Frank, Henrietta Louis

Professor of Management and Professor of Economics, Cornell University


“This eminently readable (and frankly, must-read) volume tackles head-on the next--and essential--challenge in  the rising Piketty-inspired

debate about our future.  It asks not What Has Happened and How but  What Is to Be Done, How and Why? Highly recommended.”

-Richard Parker, Kennedy School, Harvard University


“A Brighter Future: Improving the Standard of Living Now and for the Next Generation is a remarkable work that sets a high standard

for public policy debate and performance that is relevant for us now and into the foreseeable future. I highly recommend it for researchers

and teachers/students of social and economic policy, macroeconomics and ecological economics; as well as for general readers interested

in solutions to some of the most pressing problems of the twenty-first century.” - Phillip Anthony O’Hara, Director of the Global

Political Economy Research Unit; and Past-President of the Association for Evolutionary Economics (2013-14)

"Greenwood and Holt offer a concise, thought-provoking ecological economic perspective on local economic development. Using accessible

prose, the authors provide a comprehensive framework that ties together issues of economic growth, quality of life, and sustainability in

analyses of local policy initiatives. An impressive array of local issues is tackled, from taxation, land use, transportation, and urban sprawl

to public schools, inequality, and poverty. Overall, this volume provides invaluable guidelines to local decision makers and stakeholders for

implementing successful sustainability strategies. It will also be of great interest to undergraduate students and concerned citizens alike who

are interested in understanding and solving many of this century's local economic development challenges in the US. Highly recommended.

Lower-division undergraduate through professional collections." -- Choice


"Thoughtful new insights about what is needed to reshape economic development for 21st century priorities and challenges." -- Richard

Lamm, University of Denver and former governor of Colorado


"Local Economic Development in the 21st Century is a well-written and extremely useful and insightful book on the pros and cons of local

economic development. It raises important issues on the relationship between traditional economic growth on the one hand and the quality of

life and sustainable development on the other hand. Though the policy implications are about the best way of 'acting locally,' the book has

important implications for policy makers and public officials on the national level as well." -- Edward Wolff, New York University


"A very readable book for non-economists... it makes a compelling case for the natural compatibility of quality of life factors and sustainable

economic development. It illustrates not only why traditional business incentives are not cost-effective but also suggests what to do in place

of them. In particular, the authors call for entrepreneurship and education while emphasizing the tight interconnections among economy,

environment, and society. This is the future of economic development." -- Chris Gibbons, Director of Business/Industry Affairs


“This book should be a must-read for all economic developers and civic leaders, as well as for students of the social sciences.”

Abby Shenbaum Train, New Mexico State University


Having these ideas in the eyes, ears and minds of federal officeholders, as well as engaged citizens at all levels, would help us create the kind of

of  communities in which we all wish to live. -- Reynold F. Nesiba, Augustana College


“This book is an excellent treatment of the issues facing society in the twenty-first century. It is an important contribution to our knowledge

of planning scholarship. I recommend this book to anyone interested in the future of our society, students and civil servants alike.”

Zoltan J. Acs, George Mason University


European Economics at a Crossroads, with Barkley Rosser, Jr. and David Colander, Edward Elgar, 2010

It is hard not to love the authors of this volume. They are serious and critical, taking time out of their own research to "stir up the pot" of

alternatives to neoclassical economics. -- Herb Gintis


Post Keynesian and Ecological Economics: Confronting Environmental Issues with Clive Spash and Steve Pressman,

(edited volume) Edward Elgar Publishing, Aldershot, U.K, 2009

“... a book that will undoubtedly become a major resource for anyone calling to action the heterodox community to pull together a coherent

perspective on environmental and sustainability issues...This book is the first to address this enormous lacuna in heterodox economics.

Ecological and post-Keynesian economists will consider it as a companion guide for the study of production and consumption dynamics. Other

heterodox economists involved in the study of economy-environment relationships must consider it as an example to follow.”

-- Ali Dousai,  University of Nice Sophia Antipolis, France, Economic Issues, 2011.


“ Holt, Pressman and Spash have pieced together a wonderfully diverse collection of essays.” -- Scott L.B. McConnell, University of Missouri

at Kansas City


Empirical Post Keynesian Economics: Looking at the Real World with Steven Pressman,  (edited volume) M.E. Sharpe, 2006

“This exciting collection of essays is an impressive beginning to the realization of Alfred Eichner’s vision of completing the Post Keynesian

paradigm by mounting a research program to provide empirical support for its theoretical conclusions and policy recommendations…In

furthering the “third stage” of the Post Keynesian paradigm, the essays in this collection will enable heterodox economic thinkers of all

persuasions to introduce new leading-edge research into the classroom.”-- Ingrid H. Rima, Temple University


“In sum, Empirical Post Keynesian Economics is a crucial step in the economics profession and gives new thunder to an alternative

paradigm.” -- Ian Strachan, Colorado State University


The Changing Face of Economics: Conversations with Cutting Edge Economists, with David C. Colander and J.

Barkley Rosser, Jr., University of Michigan Press, 2004 (Book Award: A Choice Outstanding Academic Book Title, 2005)


“… a must read for understanding the evolution of recent economics.”  -- Nobel Prize winner Vernon L. Smith


“It will be an invaluable accompaniment to any history of economic thought.” -- Melvin Reder


“Lively conversations with some of economics’ most original thinkers.” -- David Warsh


A New Guide to Post Keynesian Economics, with Steven Pressman,  (edited volume) Routledge Press, U.K., 2001

“Overall, this book is an excellent guide to PK economic…A must read for students, scholars and policy-makers who are looking for new

fresh ideas to refute orthodox economics.”  -- Fadhel Kaboub, University of Missouri, Kansas City


Economics and its Discontents: Twentieth Century Dissenting Economists, with Steven Pressman, (edited volume)

Edward Elgar Publishing, Aldershot, and U.K. 1998 (Translated into Spanish).

“… the essays overall are of high quality . . . a stimulating, timely, and disquieting collection.” -- G.C. Harcourt, The Economic Journal


“This is a fine collection ... These are good, thought-provoking essays, much more than the personal biographies one might expect in a

book about economists. I learned from these essays and recommend the book without reservation.”  -- William S. Brown,  Review of

Political Economy
