Finance as the Humpty Dumpty of Academia

Flattr this!

(My apolo­gies for the pre­vi­ous post–I did­n’t check the YouTube link**, which was to an ear­li­er video.)

I gave the pre­sen­ta­tion below to a Grif­fith Uni­ver­si­ty sym­po­sium on Finance the­o­ry “after” the GFC/Great Reces­sion.

Speak­ers only had 20 min­utes, and if you think I nor­mal­ly speak fast, brace your­self for the speed of this pre­sen­ta­tion. I sug­gest you keep the mouse near the “pause” but­ton in case you want to spend more time read­ing some of the text–which is also here of course in the Pow­er­point File.

** PS The rea­son for not check­ing was that Google Chrome, which I pre­fer to Inter­net Explor­er, does­n’t show me the video when I go to pre­view mode with­in WordPress–though it does show up when I pub­lish the post. If any Word­Press whiz out there can tell me how to fix this, I’d be oblig­ed.

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.
