Kenneth Boulding spent most of the rest of his 26 years in Boulder, Colorado. The first 13 years he spent as professor of economics connected to the Institute of Behavioral Science at the University of Colorado at Boulder. These were good, productive years and are the focus of this chapter. He did not necessarily have the same level of inspiration at the University of Colorado as he did at the University of Michigan, but his years at the University of Colorado are marked by a few important advancements in his thinking. First, he continued his work on conflict and peace. He refined his thinking and, with the help of his wife, Elise, developed a more well-rounded theory of peace. Second, he created what he called grants economics. Once his grants economics was well defined, Boulding could complete his bigger picture of the social system. Third, he developed his evolutionary economics that fit within the institutional economic framework. At the same time, Boulding helped finance the Journal of Post Keynesian Economics, which began circulation in 1978, and was on their editorial board for many years. The end of this chapter speculates on the degree to which Boulding falls into the Institutionalist and Post Keynesian schools of economic thought.
