Alfredo Medio's homepage:

Interestingly, there are no references at the above to his

Cogoy and Lipietz he has moved on to different subjects.
In Medio's case, the move took place decades ago (in the 
70's?).  I'm not sure how he would describe his current 
theoretical perspective -- perhaps evolutionary economics?  

Information on his book _Nonlinear dynamics: a primer_
co-authored with Marji Lines can be found at:

Some other prominent writers on nonlinear dynamics and 
cycles such as  Willi Semmler and Klaus Peter Flaschel 
used to consider themselves to be Marxists (if they still
consider themselves to be Marxians then I offer my profuse

The current research interests for my former mentor and
all-around good guy Willi can be seen at:
Peter Flaschel's home page is at:

Is there anything about the subject matter itself (including cycles,
financial instability, nonlinear dynamics, disequilibrium macro
dynamics) which has encouraged specialists in that area, as 
they research the area more closely, to move away from a 
Marxian perspective?
