Martins, Nuno (2009). "Sen's capability approach and Post Keynesianism: similarities, distinctions, and the Cambridge tradition" Journal of Post Keynesian Economics M.E. Sharpe, Inc. 31 4 pp. 691-706

The capability approach to human development, proposed by Amartya Sen and others, is now a prominent perspective within welfare economics and development economics. The author argues that the capability approach, like Post Keynesianism, can be situated within the Cambridge economic tradition, a tradition grounded on classical economics, and characterized by an ontological focus on themes such as openness and uncertainty, and by a common social philosophy. Furthermore, the author argues that the capability approach and Post Keynesianism can be seen as complementary and mutually enriching approaches.
