Zusammenfassung

Im ersten und zweiten Teil dieses Aufsatzes wird der Neoricardianismus elementar dargestellt, um damit, dem Charakter dieses Buches entsprechend, eine allgemeine Einführung zu geben, die für Studierende verständlich sein soll, auch wenn sie sich noch wenig mit ökonomischer Dogmengeschichte beschäftigt haben. Der dritte Teil geht auf neue Entwicklungen und Erkenntnisse ein; seine Lektüre setzt ein breiteres Wissen voraus. Am Schluss weise ich auf aktuelle Verzweigungen der Forschung hin und kehre schließlich zur Person Piero Sraffas als des Begründers des Neoricardianismus zurück.

Neoricardianism: a resumption of classical theory

Abstract

The first and the second part of this paper provides an elementary introduction to neoricardianism, which should be understandable to students, even if they have not followed a course in the history of economic thought. The third part presents later developments and insights and presupposes boader knowledge. The last part indicates recent developments of research in this domain. Eventually, I return to Piero Sraffa as the founder of neoricardianism.
