Capitalist food regime and the agrifood problem: a critique of political economic and post-developmentalist understandings of the agrarian/peasant question
Büke, Atakan; Ecevit, Mehmet Cihan; Department of Sociology (2018)
The proliferation and differentiation processes in critical approaches on agrifood relations since the late 1980s can be seen as the rise of critical agrifood studies. When compared to the peasant studies of the era between the late 1960s and the late 1980s, critical agrifood studies signifies a radical theoretical reorientation in the field that especially becomes apparent in the post-developmentalist turn manifested in the contemporary agrarian/peasant question formulations.

As a response to the economic crises, which also mostly resulted in regime legitimacy crises, many MENA countries initiated economic liberalization programs in cooperation with the International Monetary Fu...
Aggregate Demand, Employment and Equilibrium with Marginal Productivity: Keynesian Adjustment in the Craft Economy
Nell, Edward J. (Orta Doğu Teknik Üniversitesi (Ankara, Turkey), 2008-6)

None of them have thought that supply and demand for labor determined employment and real wages. All agree that Keynes' approach recast the argument in money rather than real terms. But if the market operates with money wages, how exactly does the real wage adjust to the marginal product? If the real wage adjusts in the labor market, why is full employment not established?
