Subject: Announcement for an RRPE Special Issue

Dear Michael:

I would appreciate it if you could forward to PEN-L this announcement of a
call for proposals for a Special Issue of the RRPE on the Future of
Capitalism.  Thanks.

                        CALL FOR PAPERS:
                       RRPE Special Issue,
                   "The Future of Capitalism"

Far from ushering in "the end of history," the collapses
and changes undergone by socialist countries have made a
critical assessment of capitalism more important than
ever.  What kind of model and prospect do the advanced
capitalist nations hold out for the peoples of the world?
Mainstream euphoria on this question has subsided as the
nineties have progressed, and the need for cogent Left
analysis and debate has never been greater.

The Review of Radical Political Economics will publish a
special issue devoted to furthering this discussion.  We
invite submissions representing a diversity of
perspectives within radical economics and related
disciplines.  Authors are encouraged to examine policy
and political as well as theoretical problems.  Questions
to be addressed might include, without being limited to,
the following.

1. How can the stagnation from which the advanced
capitalist economies seem unable to shake free be
explained?  Will the problems of slow growth and high
unemployment be capable of solution, and on what terms?

2. Will high and rising levels of economic and
ethnic/racial polarization become permanent features of
the landscape?  In what ways will women's oppression
continue to be reduced, and in what ways entrenched?

3. How do the Third World, and North-South relations, fit
into this future?  Will the former socialist world's
integration into world capitalism significantly affect
the advanced capitalist trajectory?
 4. What will be the bases of political support for
future regimes of capitalism?  Are there political or
social currents presently visible that will be capable of
generating renewed popular resistance?  What can be done
to facilitate such a process?

Potential contributors should send a proposal of up to
500 words (two pages) for consideration by an RRPE
editorial committee.  The deadline for proposals is June
30, 1995.  Send to
David Houston, RRPE Managing Editor,
Dept. of Economics,
University of Pittsburgh, Pittsburgh PA 15260, USA
 or HOUSTON at vms.cis.pitt.edu

The committee will provide detailed comments on accepted
proposals; for final publication, the completed papers
will be subject to RRPE's usual review procedure.
