The Uno Newsletter: Rejuvenating Marxian Economics through Uno Theory

(Vol. II, No. 13) 25 December 2013


The Uno Newsletter (in Japanese) started after the 30th Memorial Conference (2007) in honour of Kozo Uno (1897-1977) who developed an approach to understanding capitalism (and appropriating Marx’s ideas) that contains three levels of analysis: the general theory of capitalism; the stages of capitalist development; and detailed studies of particular countries and time-periods. 22 issues of the Newsletter in Japanese were published between December 2007 and October 2013. Now we have decided to publish an English edition of the Uno Newsletter once or twice a year.
In the open spirit of Japanese political economy, contributions in the Uno Newsletter draw on diverse intellectual traditions. The focus of The Uno Newsletter includes the basic theory of capitalism such as the theories of value, money, capital accumulation, business cycle, and labour process; the integration of heterodox economics such as Marxian, Post Keynesian, Institutional, Evolutionary, and Neo-Schumpeterian economics; the theory of capitalist development such as Uno’s stage theory, the evolution of the capitalist world system, and intermediate theory; and finally the empirical analysis of capitalism such as the development of Japan, China, and Asia, or the financialization, globalization, and crises that tend to have global ramifications.
