In his 2001 “Introduction: The Journal of Macrodynamic Analysis,” Mike Shute recounted how the journal came about and what its aim would be. The idea for the journal emerged from a series of conferences in Nova Scotia, Canada, in 1997, 1999, and 2000. Those conferences focused on Lonergan’s macroeconomic dynamics, the relevance of this analysis to issues of social justice, and the long-term challenge of transforming methods and approaches prevalent in the contemporary academy. After the final conference, the decision was made to move forward with the journal, and the three articles published in volume 1 came from individuals who participated in the conferences and the discussion leading up to the decision to launch the journal.
