About Dr Graham White

Graham White´s research interests have centered on the issues associated with the possibility of synthesising Sraffian-inspired pricing models with Keynesian models of output and growth, especially as a means of providing alternative non-orthodox theoretical foundations. Graham´s PhD thesis studied the relation between output and long-period prices in the context of a cyclically disturbed system.
