Tag Archives: JSPE-Routledge Book Prize




The Japan Society of Political Economy (JSPE) is happy to announce the creation of the JSPE-Routledge Book Prize. The JSPE is an interdisciplinary association devoted to the study, development, and application of political economy to social problems. It has been the largest organization of heterodox economists in Japan since its founding in 1959, providing important occasions for developing and debating ideas about capitalism and its dynamics. The JSPE wishes to play a more active role in promoting political economy and heterodox economics internationally.

The Book prize is financially supported by Routledge, which is the world’s leading academic publisher in the Humanities and Social Sciences, serving scholars, instructors, and professional communities worldwide. The prize encourages members of the JSPE to publish their work in English and to challenge the growing dominance of orthodox neo-liberal economics among economists and policy-makers. It also promotes studies in heterodox economics all over the world. It is the hope of the members of the JSPE that this prize in political economy will become equivalent to other great international economic prizes, such as the Nobel Memorial Prize in Economic Sciences, which is given only to mainstream economists. The winner of this prize in any given year will be invited to the JSPE annual conference in Japan and will receive an award certificate and monetary grant (sponsored by Routledge).
