Capital Account Interview

Flattr this!

Rus­sia Today’s “Cap­i­tal Account” pro­gram is less than a month old, and already it’s mak­ing a mark with a pio­neer­ing approach to eco­nom­ic and finan­cial tele­vi­sion. There is a stag­ger­ing dif­fer­ence between their cov­er­age and the super­fi­cial­i­ty of eco­nom­ic cov­er­age on oth­er pro­grams in Amer­i­ca, where enter­tain­ment seems the be the empha­sis rather than analy­sis. And yet Cap­i­tal Account is enter­tain­ing as well as infor­ma­tive.

I was lucky enough to be able to drop in to the stu­dio on my cur­rent trip and record the inter­view below with the host Lau­ren Lyster. Be sure to put Cap­i­tal Account on your favorites.

The first two clips below are extracts from the show specif­i­cal­ly on my inter­view; the third is the entire pro­gram.

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.
