American Monetary Institute Conference Chicago Sept 30–Oct 3

Flattr this!

The Amer­i­can Mon­e­tary Insti­tute has  invit­ed me to speak at their 2010 Mon­e­tary Reform Con­fer­ence, at the Uni­ver­si­ty Cen­ter in down­town Chica­go, between  Sep­tem­ber 30th and Octo­ber 3rd. I have agreed, though since this is in the mid­dle of a teach­ing peri­od for me it will be a “light­ning trip” to the USA–leaving Syd­ney on Wednes­day 29th and leav­ing Chica­go on Mon­day 4th.

I’ll give a pre­sen­ta­tion cov­er­ing the sta­tis­tics on the debt-dri­ven process that led to the eco­nom­ic cri­sis, an expla­na­tion of how mon­ey is cre­at­ed in a pure cred­it econ­o­my (based on my “Rov­ing Cav­a­liers of Cred­it” post on this blog), and a mod­el of debt-defla­tion as cov­ered in my recent talk in New York.

If you’d like to attend the con­fer­ence, the organ­is­ers have agreed to give a $45 dis­count on the $395 reg­is­tra­tion fee to any­one who is referred from my blog. If you’d like to attend, click here to send an email to reserve a place at the con­fer­ence. They don’t have an online fee pay­ment sys­tem for the con­fer­ence, though you can use their Pay­Pal link to pay your fee. Alter­nate­ly, you can send a check to:

Amer­i­can Mon­e­tary Insti­tute
P.O. Box 601
Valatie, NY 12184
Ph: 224–805-2200

I hope to see some of you there.

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.
