One of the main components of Minsky’s work is that he took an “institutionalist” approach and argued that abstract economic theory could not be applicable in all times and places but must be institution-specific.

In this Left Out teaser, economist Pavlina Tcherneva explains the importance of Minsky's incorporation of post-Keynesian theory with an “institutionalist” recognition for the different kinds of past, current, and future economic institutions.

Our full episode with Pavlina Tcherneva on Keynes, Minsky, a federal job guarantee and much more, will release this week.
