About James Devine

Interested in many subjects, I consider myself to be a practitioner of political economy, a field that includes normally-defined economics only as a (major) part. Political economy also includes elements of psychology, sociology, political science, history, philosophy, and anthropology. (Biology and physics are also interesting to me; I majored in chemistry in my first year as an undergraduate.)
My more specialized work centers on macroeconomics, along with “neighboring” fields such as labor economics, money & banking, and economic history. I apply a dynamic-disequilibrium approach (deriving from such classical economists as Adam Smith and Karl Marx, along with moderns such as John Maynard Keynes, Michal Kalecki, Karl Polanyi, and Joseph Schumpeter). I am interested in such historical issues as the origins of the Great Depression of the 1930s.
