Dear OPE,

I have been lurking for a while and am only now getting around to
introducing myself. I am teaching economics at the National
University of Ireland, Galway. I am originally American. I took my
degree at the University of Massachusetts, falling between the local
stools by taking an Althusserian approach to social structures of
accumulation. I have done work in this area since. I regard SSA and
regulation theory as essentially compatible, especially in the
Fordist and Post-Fordist(?) period. I have also done some work on
the mode of production in 19th Century Ireland and history of
thought. I am increasingly interested in the philosophy of economics
and epistemological questions relating to historical materialism. In
the new year, I may be doing some policy work on Basic Income
proposals in Ireland and attempting to build a social
structuralist/regulationist model of the Irish political economy.

I'll start my contribution with a question. What does Gerry L find
wrong with Jurriaan's concept of a domestic mode of production?
