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.
