Parliamentary Library Vital Issues Seminar

Flattr this!

The Par­lia­men­tary Library arranged a debate between myself and Rory Robert­son of the Mac­quar­ie Group on the finan­cial cri­sis today. We had a good audi­ence of about 70 Par­lia­ment House denizens. You can down­load the Pow­er­point Slides slides for my pre­sen­ta­tion, and the Vis­sim mod­el of Min­sky’s Finan­cial Insta­bil­i­ty Hypoth­e­sis which was part of the pre­sen­ta­tion ( Right click and choose “Save As” since this is a text file; then install the view­er, which can load the file and let you run it (I’ve also loaded the EXE file of the view­er onto my site as anoth­er way of get­ting the pro­gram). You can make changes too, but they can’t be saved).

The Library has put the record­ing of the debate up on its Vital Issues page. Since this will change over time, short­ly I’ll add the MP3 file to my list of pod­casts.

About Steve Keen

I am Professor of Economics and Head of Economics, History and Politics at Kingston University London, and a long time critic of conventional economic thought. As well as attacking mainstream thought in Debunking Economics, I am also developing an alternative dynamic approach to economic modelling. The key issue I am tackling here is the prospect for a debt-deflation on the back of the enormous private debts accumulated globally, and our very low rate of inflation.
