“Global financial integration is likely to characterize the next era of expansive capitalism. The problem of finance that will emerge is whether the financial and fiscal control and support institutions of national governments can contain both the consequences of global financial fragility and an international debt deflation.” Hyman Minsky 1995
The Department of Economics, which in 2012 has been encompassed in the present larger Dept. of Management, Economics and Quantitative Methods, was titled to Hyman Minsky. Hyman Minsky used to visit regularly the Dept. of Economics and was a friend to many of its members who shared ideas and research with him and are still inspired by his coherence and independence, by his sharp observation of the reality, by his thorough knowledge of the economic theory.
The Economist has recently dedicated one of its six series on seminal economic ideas to Hyman Minsky. You can find the article in the section Hints&Research.
"It is the interaction between institutions and organizations that shapes the institutional evolution of an economy. If institutions are the rules of the game, organizations and their entrepreneurs are the players." Douglass North, 1994
"We are not students of some subject matter, but students of problems. And problems may cut right across the borders of any subject matter or discipline." Karl Popper, 1963
