Author Biography

Julian Wells, Kingston University London

Julian Wells is director of studies in the School of Economics, Kingston University London. His responsibilities currently include participation in a major review of the structure and content of the School’s undergraduate curriculum. His research is inspired by Emmanuel Farjoun and Moshe Machover’s Laws of chaos: a probabilistic approach to political economy (Verso Editions, 1983): on the one hand, empirical investigation of the distribution of company profit rates, and on the other an enquiry into Marx’s statistical thought, derived from his engagement with Quetelet.
