Keen Talk @ Google 2012 – don’t trust an economist

Flattr this!

You can’t go past the Google team for an intel­li­gent and engag­ing audi­ence. I spoke there 2 years ago to an audi­ence of about 100, and a sim­i­lar sized group turned up yes­ter­day. There were some quite chal­leng­ing ques­tions on my views about the cur­rent state of the world econ­o­my, so the talk went well over the allot­ted hour

Below is the video of the talk; the sound qual­i­ty is a bit poor (I rec­om­mend using ear­phones to lis­ten to it), but there is also an audio record­ing below that may be eas­i­er to under­stand. If there are enough com­plaints(!), we’ll blend the sep­a­rate­ly record­ed audio with the video.

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.
