Capital Account Interview on the Keen-Krugman Brawl

flattr this!

Lau­ren Lyster and Demetri Kofi­nas at Rus­sia Today’s Cap­i­tal Account did their usual bril­liant job in this inter­view with me about the Krug­man brawl, and I’ve been some­what remiss in not post­ing it here ear­lier. I’ve given enough links on this topic in ear­lier posts not to bother now, so look to those if you want to fol­low the debate in more detail.

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.

    That’s it RJ. You’re banned for two weeks. I don’t give a stuff if that pisses you off. Your treat­ment of other blog­gers here is highly dis­re­spect­ful, and I won’t stand for it.

    I am also look­ing for­ward to post­ing an analy­sis of MMT that points out short­com­ings of which you are utterly unaware.

  2. RJ says:


    You have said this before re MMT and have yet to front up. So I will not hold my breath.

    And it is some­thing I do not rec­om­mend for you any­way. You need to learn from them not let you ego stand in the way.

    But see you back in two weeks maybe.

  3. Steve Keen says:

    It’s not my ego but logic RJ–and empir­i­cal data. And I have yet to deliver because I hadn’t pre­vi­ously had time to write. Michael Hud­son and I have now had that time; after some fur­ther devel­op­ment and fine tun­ing, it will be sub­mit­ted to a jour­nal and posted here.

    Enjoy your holiday.
