Al Jazeera interview on Rating Agencies

Flattr this!

I’ve done numer­ous inter­views on Al Jazeera’s news and busi­ness pro­grams over the last 5 years; this is the first one I’ve been sent a clip of–and I’ll try to keep get­ting them now that the Prof­Steve­Keen YouTube Chan­nel is up and run­ning.

The top­ic was the role of the Cred­it Rat­ing Agen­cies and their role in the cri­sis. Though the inter­views are short new pieces and don’t leave time to get into top­ics in any great detail, the fact that Al Jazeera cov­ers top­ics like this in some crit­i­cal detail puts it sev­er­al steps ahead of the media pack, espe­cial­ly in the US and Aus­tralia.

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.
