Canada’s Debt Bubble

Flattr this!

Below is the talk I gave to the Cana­di­an Cen­tre for Pol­i­cy Alter­na­tives on the Debt Bub­ble and its impli­ca­tions for Cana­da. I cov­er my Min­skian analy­sis of the Depres­sion in gen­er­al, and con­clude with data on the Cana­di­an econ­o­my. The mort­gage accel­er­a­tion data in par­tic­u­lar implies that the Cana­di­an house price bubble–which is not as big as those in Aus­tralia, the USA or the UK–is close to being over.

This is the screen record­ing of the talk–better for read­ing the slides them­selves.

I’ll edit the post tomor­rrow to add links to the Pow­er­point slides and an audio recording–I can’t access the servers right now to upload them.

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.
