This year is the 40th anniversary of the publication of Tony Thirlwall’s influential paper ‘The Balance of Payments Constraint as an Explanation of International Growth Rate Differences’.

The Review of Keynesian Economics devotes the whole of its Winter issue of 2019 to papers examining the continued relevance of the original model, and its various extensions, over the last 40 years – including a paper of ‘reflections‘ by Tony himself:
