The Cambridge Journal of Economics was first published in March 1977. The journal has been publishing papers from the full range of heterodox perspectives for four decades providing a forum for theoretical, applied, policy relevant, interdisciplinary, history of thought and methodological work. It has throughout had a strong emphasis on realistic analysis, the development of critical perspectives, the provision and use of empirical evidence and the construction of policy.
Therefore a conference was held to mark the first forty years of the Journal and look ahead to the next forty.
The conference ran over two days, starting at 09:00 on 12 July and running until 17:30 on 13 July, with a conference dinner on 12 July.
