His most recent book (above) focuses on the financial crisis and the Great Recession in the United States. His earlier books dealt with issues of international development—for example: Neo-liberalism or Democracy? Economic Strategy, Markets and Alternatives for the 21st Century (1999) and Debt and Disorder: International Economic Instability and U.S. Imperial Decline (1992). In addition to his scholarly work, Professor MacEwan writes regularly for Dollars & Sense magazine.
After his retirement from teaching, Professor MacEwan has continued his work as a senior fellow at UMass Boston’s Center for Social Policy and as a research economist at UMass Amherst’s Political Economy Research Institute. In January 2015, he assumed the role of interim director of the center when Donna Haig Friedman stepped down.
