His work

Steedman has been recognised as one of the leading Neo-Ricardian economic theorists with work in the areas overlapping with those of Marx, Sraffa, Marshall, Jevons and Wicksteed. He has also made contributions to economic theory on time, international trade, capital theory and growth and distribution.[3]

He is also a Senior Research Fellow at the William Temple Foundation and his work now includes the study of "happiness" and its relation to welfare economics.[4]
