Flattr this!

This is just a heads up to the 12,675 reg­is­tered users on this site that you are about to receive an email from me ask­ing for your res­i­den­tal address.

This is intend­ed just for the frac­tion of indi­vid­u­als who have reg­is­tered at or upgrad­ed to a mem­ber­ship lev­el that enti­tles them to an eBook or hard­copy ver­sion of the sec­ond edi­tion of Debunk­ing Eco­nom­ics, which will be launched and avail­able on Octo­ber 4th (in the UK–its avail­abil­i­ty in oth­er coun­tries depends on ship­ping times). How­ev­er there is no way for me to select just that sub­set for emails from with­in Word­Press (if any Word­Press guru knows oth­er­wise, please tell me how!), so all of you will receive the request (assum­ing that the plu­g­in works as adver­tised).

A note for those who are expect­ing an eBook: it is pos­si­ble to do this in the USA via a “gift” from Ama­zon, but it appears that in oth­er coun­tries even Ama­zon has­n’t set this facil­i­ty up. In that case, you will be sent a paper­back copy–which is why your address­es are need­ed.

Final­ly, to put some sub­stance into this post, watch this excerpt from a BBC inter­view with a trad­er (Alessio Ras­tani) which out­lines a com­mon view in the hedge fund com­mu­ni­ty. It’s some­thing I hear all the time–and which makes me seem rel­a­tive­ly cheer­ful about our cur­rent eco­nom­ic predica­ment (and cer­tain­ly more con­cerned about its social impact!)

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.
