At ASSA 2018, away from the huge arenas where thousands listened to the 
millionaire guru mainstream economists speak, were the sessions under 
the umbrella of the Union of Radical Political Economics (URPE), where 
just handfuls heard papers from a range of heterodox and radical 
economists.  These sessions were a mixture of debate on Marx’s value 
theory (among Marxists) and its dismissal by followers of Piero Sraffa. 
But there was also some very interesting research on the nature of 
capitalist economic cycles and the causes of crises, including the 2008 
crash and the Great Recession.
