Book Reviews

Two book reviews came out in 2017.  The first was a review of Father Gregory Jensen’s The Cure for Consumerism (Grand Rapids, MI: Acton Institute for the Study of Religion and Liberty, 2015).  This was published in the part of the special issue of the Journal of Macromarketing that carried over to 2017, Vol 37, No. 1, pp. 115-119.  This was co-authored with Eve K. Geroulis, adjunct faculty member in the Department of Marketing at Loyola. 

 The second book review was of Fred Block and Margaret R. Somers, The Power of Market Fundamentalism: Karl Polanyi’s Critique (Cambridge, MA: Harvard University Press, 2014).  It was published in the Journal of Macromarketing, 2017, Vol 37, No. 3, pp. 336-339.  

 A third book review has been accepted for the Journal of Macromarketing.  It is a review of Bas van Bavel’s The Invisible Hand?  How Market Ecoomist have Emerged and Declined since AD500 (Oxford University Press, 2016).  This is forthcoming sometime in 2018 or 2019. 


Conferences Attended and Papers Presented:

 In summer 2015, just three weeks before I retired, Cliff Shultz (Department of Marketing) and I co-chaired and hosted the 40th Annual Macromarketing Conference at Loyola’s Quinlan School of Business.  I presented a paper entitled “The Post-Growth Economy: What Is All the Fuss?, as part of a session I charged on The Post Growth Economy.  

 In summer 2016 I attended the 41st Macromarketing Conference in Dublin, Ireland.  I presented a paper entitled “Our Obsolete Marketing Mentality.”  At that conference I was elected (drafted) a member of the Board of Advisors for the Macromarketing Society and I received the Macromarketing Society’s award for Best Reviewer.  

 In summer 2017 I attended the 42nd Annual Macromarketing Conference in Queenstown, New Zealand.  I presented a paper entitled “Karl Polanyi, John Maurice Clark, and a Renewed Interest in Re-linking Ethics, Economics, and Macromarketing,” in the Theory Session of the conference. 

 Also in summer 2017 I attended a workshop of all the contributors to the forthcoming Routledge Handbook of Economic Theology.  The workshop was held at the Copenhagen Business School, Copenhagen, Denmark.  We each presented our contribution and entertained discussions of our papers.  


Work in Progress

 The Polanyi paper, presented at the Macromarketing Conference in Dublin (2016) will be submitted to either the Journal of Macromarketing or to Marketing Theory.

 I continue to work on “Sustainability: A Concept Whose Time has Passed,” that is too long for a journal article. I’m now thinking it would serve as a little book entitled something like “A short introduction to Sustainability”.

 I have a couple of books to write.  One is on environmental ethics, the proposal for which is under consideration by a publisher.  The second is tentatively titled Galbraith and Glasser: Two Scotsmen, One Misunderstood, the Other Unknown.  Galbraith is, of course, the Harvard economist John Kenneth Galbraith.  Glasser is Ralph Glasser, in his early years a marketer in the UK.  As a book it would be intended for marketers, not economists.  I contend that those marketers that rejected Galbraith did so because they misunderstood him.  Glasser is not unknown, but he is unknown among marketers, both in the UK and the US, despite his first two books being marketing books.  What I find particularly interesting is that Galbraith and Glasser spoke as though with a single voice.  It is entirely possible this may end up being nothing more than a journal publication.

I will continue to periodically, even if infrequently, post to my blog, the Sustainability and Social Enterprise Blog (http://blogs.luc.edu/gsb/author/rbenton/).   So many things to do!  Finally, some time to do them.

Steve Pavkovic

Leaving LSC was sudden and melancholy for me; time to withdraw from commutes, classes, committees, students, and now even TIAA.  A few new activities were initiated, but eventually stalled.  Past encounters with photography were delightful, and I wondered if that joy might be rekindled. Digital cameras were just being introduced, and I soon had one. It proved to be the precursor of many future cameras and associated equipment. The delight of learning new techniques, and the lure of a few good shots from many attempts, turned out to be my path to an enjoyable retirement activity.
