Greetings from David Lawson, Director of CfESI

Flattr this!

I would like to take this oppor­tu­ni­ty to intro­duce myself to the Debt­watch and CfE­SI com­mu­ni­ty. My name is David Law­son, and I will be com­ing on board as the Direc­tor of the Cen­tre for Eco­nom­ic Sta­bil­i­ty Incor­po­rat­ed (CfE­SI) as of the 1st of Feb­ru­ary. I have been an active com­mit­tee mem­ber of CfE­SI since its estab­lish­ment in March 2010.

The key objec­tive of this posi­tion is to free up Steve’s time so that he can focus on his research. As one of my pri­ma­ry func­tions, I will take over com­mu­ni­ca­tions with the Debt­watch blog and CfE­SI web­site. Mat­ters that require a research input will of course still be dealt with direct­ly by Steve him­self.

I am hon­oured to be here, I have no doubt that as this eco­nom­ic cri­sis drags on, Steve’s analy­sis and pol­i­cy alter­na­tives will become more promi­nent.

This is the begin­ning of yet anoth­er volatile and uncer­tain year for economies and finan­cial mar­kets as we ven­ture fur­ther into the Glob­al Finan­cial Cri­sis. Let us con­tin­ue in our pur­suit of build­ing a more sta­ble eco­nom­ic future with­out any major crises.

Should you wish to con­tact me, please email me at …soon to be

Pho­to at the sum­mit of Mount Kosciuszko, the fin­ish line of the Keen Walk

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.
