Neva Goodwin is actively involved in the synthesis and institutionalization of contextual economics – an economic theory that will have more relevance to real-world concerns than the current dominant economic paradigm. In addition to a variety of educational materials, Neva is lead author of the introductory college-level textbook, Microeconomics in Context, whose Transitional Economies Edition was translated into Russian and Vietnamese and published in those countries in 2002. The US version and its companion, Macroeconomics in Context are currently published by Routledge in languages and editions that reach well beyond the English-speaking world.
In other activities, Neva has been involved with efforts to motivate businesses to recognize social and ecological health as significant, long-term corporate goals. A number of her articles and working papers are available on her ResearchGate profile.
