New York Talk: Roosevelt Hotel, Friday 23rd

Flattr this!

Neat, Plausible, and Wrong: the deluded discipline of economics”

Blog mem­ber Robert Kahn has booked the River­side Suite for 5–8pm. The first hour will be meet and greet; I’ll give a talk with the above title from 6pm. After ques­tions and dis­cus­sion we’ll adjourn to some­where near­by for din­ner (sug­ges­tions welcome–somewhere that has low noise lev­els please since I have very bad hear­ing cour­tesy of a seri­ous case of tin­ni­tus).

Robert has forked out $500 to make the book­ing, so I’d appre­ci­ate atten­dees mak­ing dona­tions to him of about $20–25. With the expect­ed num­ber of atten­dees, that should spread the finan­cial pain even­ly.

I’ll put more details up lat­er (I’m head­ing out for din­ner now)–by 4pm New York time on Fri­day.

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.
