Europe trip mid June

Flattr this!

I’m attend­ing the Soci­ety for the Advance­ment of Socio-Eco­nom­ics (SASE) annu­al con­fer­ence in Madrid on June 23–25. Giv­en that I have to fly from Aus­tralia, I’m mak­ing this an extend­ed trip. I will spend 3 days in Lon­don (June 13–15), 3 in Paris (16–18), 3 in Barcelona (19–21) and 4 in Madrid (22–25).

As well as some tourism and meet­ing up with friends like Max Keis­er in Paris, I’m open to giv­ing a talk or three, if there is suf­fi­cient inter­est.

Zed Books, the pub­lish­ers of my book Debunk­ing Eco­nom­ics, remind­ed me that June is aca­d­e­m­ic shut­down month in Europe, so they’re not con­fi­dent of being able to organ­ise an aca­d­e­m­ic audi­ence or venue. There­fore I’m let­ting the blo­gos­phere know my where­abouts, in case any of you would like to organ­ise a talk. I did the same a year ago in New York, and an audi­ence of about 40 rocked up for both the talk and a love­ly din­ner after­wards.

If you live in any of the above cities and are inter­est­ed in organ­is­ing a talk, let me know (either by a com­ment here or an email) and I’ll estab­lish an event link on this site. You would need to arrange a venue and any local pub­lic­i­ty; I can set the event up to include online reg­is­tra­tion (includ­ing pay­ment if that is need­ed to cov­er venue hire).

On Debunk­ing Eco­nom­ics itself, I have com­plet­ed the sec­ond edi­tion and it is now with the copy edi­tors. There is lots to be done–especially since it has grown from 120,000 words in the first edi­tion to 215,000 in this one–but with luck it will be avail­able by late Sep­tem­ber this year.

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.
