Thom Hartmann The Big Picture Interview

Flattr this!

Thom Hart­mann is the most promi­nent of the very few pro­gres­sive eco­nom­ic and polit­i­cal com­men­ta­tors in Amer­i­ca. Wikipedia notes that “In 2008, 2009, and 2010, Talk­ers Mag­a­zine named Hart­mann the tenth most impor­tant talk show host in Amer­i­ca, and num­ber 8 in 2011 defin­ing him as the most impor­tant lib­er­al host for four years in a row (the ones above Hart­mann are con­ser­v­a­tives).”

Thom inter­viewed me for his TV show The Big Pic­ture yes­ter­day, on the top­ic of whether we’re in a Depres­sion now, if so how this one com­pares to the 1930s, and whether such events are a part of cap­i­tal­is­m’s nat­ur­al cycli­cal­i­ty.

Quick update

Thom has resched­uled his spe­cial on The Thom Hart­mann Pro­gram to Wednes­day at 2pm New York time, to fit in with my sched­ule.

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.
